Human!

 

It’s a wonderful world out there. Not that you need me to tell you how it is! But truly, it’s amazing how your perception changes every passing day. There is always something new to be learnt, a new obstacle to be surmounted, a new feeling to be understood. A never ending process!

As I was looking through my previous posts, I found how I had envisioned, being human as a weakness and how it was something that we tend to forget. Looking back at it now, I am forced to admit and realise how wrong I had been.

All of our life we have come across several situations where we have affiliated our shortcomings to the fact that we are just humans. I’m guilty of this crime too. Over the past couple of days, there have been instances where I have used this silly phrase to put an end to a discussion.

It was either ” I’m sorry but I’M HUMAN too” or  “Yes, I messed up… but guess what!? I’M HUMAN too.”

It’s hight time we realise that being human is a strength.

Yes! You heard me right!

The ability to cope with different emotions; anger, fear, joy, jealousy, disgust, pity and all that comes in between and to be able to still go on. Now, that takes courage!

We have all been there, stuck in our insecurities, scared of how society would react to our fears. But I tell you, it’s alright. It’s okay to break down, feel lost and get angry at how the world runs. This is how we learn to survive. It’s a scary big bad world out there with pitfalls, miracles and whatnot! Brace yourselves! Never be afraid to step out. Shying away, waiting for help isn’t going to lessen the pain. It just doesn’t work that way!

Social media is buzzing with posts on depression these days. Reading through them, I  couldn’t help but notice that it’s indeed a grave issue that needs to be tackled and discussed openly. Yes, but the hype, the posts on facebook, the online rallies are just not enough. We have a long way to go, the sooner we realise that, the better. It all starts from within you. You need to take care of yourself, sort out those feelings and breathe! Easier said than done, but you have to start somewhere.

But as a matter of fact, humans are no different from how they were. Technology has, of course, revolutionised the way we live but not the way we feel. Deep down, we are still the same mortals who crave for attention, who need love and affection to feel appreciated and who worry about the smallest of things.

Deep down, we are still the same mortals who crave for attention, who need love and affection to feel appreciated and who worry about the smallest of things.This is in fact what makes us special.

And there is nothing to be ashamed of. It’s who we are. This is what makes us different and helps us define ourselves. It sets us apart from all the other creatures. This is us, living life as it is and still going strong. And that counts, it really does!

I’m human too! Let’s start stating this with pride. People need to accept this fact! Humans are such beautiful souls who bring with them the power to build and destroy ideas and who possess the might to alter reality.

HUMANS ARE US! Never let that be a flaw, employ it to expand your horizons and reach your potential!
