Oxford dictionary defines “human” as some words I don’t remember. Same goes with Wikipedia, Webster’s dictionary and so on…
How I define “human” is way different than heavy words and grammatical corrections! It’s more than words. It’s about emotions really and how amazingly we can channel each emotion to create something extraordinary.
“Feel the Extraordinary”….
We as humans can feel the things beyond our imagination. We can feel unconditional emotions! Like Empathy, Compassion, Love, Kindness and so much more! And that too, for total strangers!
But we limit ourselves! We don’t use the “Human Superpower” to the fullest!
We are contained within the things we’ve been taught by our mentors or friends!
We desire for more and more but for materialism.
What will happen if we start to desire for more emotions to flow inside us? Of course you do !
But the wrong ones!
We tend to desire the negative emotions more than the positives. Hence, the violance, hatred, crimes and destruction! Now don’t tell me it is to balance things out! No amount of negativity is to balance or for good!
Yes yes! I know! Humans are of different perspectives and have different types of backgrounds, hence the negativity! But can’t we change it!?
Just imagine a life, where the only negativity you face is the office politics!
Initially, it will be suffocating and annoying! Like, why is everyone so nice!? Then, you’ll doubt everyone’s move, like what do they want from you , why are they being so nice!!?
Isn’t this what happens today?
The real, genuinely nice people are suffering the doubts of ‘to be nice humans’ …
Their desire to “Feel the Extraordinary” is diminished to anxiety and loneliness!
Hence, they start feeling the negativity more than anyone!
But if only we could be more UNDERSTANDING!!
If only we could “Understand the Impossible!”
I mention “impossible” because if we can assume the worst case scenarios in everything, we can as well understand the impossible!
If we could understand someone being rude, that they might be having a rough day or a rough patch personally!
If we could understand if someone is hating us, it doesn’t mean they really hate us! But that’s the only feeling they know!
If we could understand, why someone is talking bad things about us, that may be they admire us secretly but they’re habitual to stay on top! And it’s okay!
If we could understand, that violance is not the way, that hatred can ruin us in return, we would have been more peaceful!
I know, there’s no way, we can always understand the impossible, but we can try and ignore it for once. Take a stand for ourselves sometimes, but keeping yourself sane at times of crisis is far more a power than indulging with people who won’t even listen!
But ,what it means to be human?
And who am I to tell you that!?
Well, I am a human and to be human, is to support other beings in existence and in surviving. In fighting and in thriving. In struggling and in growing. In losing and in winning.
To be Human, is to be Human in EVERY situation.
