 I think to figure out if

 I think to figure out if something matters, who need to ask the question first of who it matters to. When Deanna decided it didn't matter, I think she thinks that it doesn't matter what other people think of her situation with Eddie and with her pregnancy. Everything matters, you just have to figure out to who. What other people think of her scandalous relationship could mean something to gossiping neighbors, but not to Deanna. 

I think voting does matter, because it's very important for me to have faith in my political system. I voted for the first time (absentee style) for my town's school board and town council, something I've looked forward to since I was under 8, probably. It mattered to me to vote because its something I've wanted to do for a long time. It also mattered for the people I voted for, or didn't vote for. 

I think to say that nothing matters is totally depressing and untrue.
