This Makes Me Feel Human

You’ve heard or said it before. “This” is a constituent of the things you value most. It’s an essential aspect of living and I hope we all know it well.

We have common humanness check points. I think this is the beauty of us—shared humanity—we have something in common with everyone we meet.

Keep people away from boxes and labels. We like labeling (at a certain point it’s unavoidable), but when we do it constantly, we’re inadvertently doing it to ourselves. Once we say, “That person is [x] because of [y],” we’ve created an opposite. Assumedly, we are the opposite, the “non-[x]” person, and we’ve created a barrier. It’s isolating for ourselves and others.

What if we saw people as variations of ourselves? What does it really mean to feel human? What does the [x] person have in common with you, anyway?

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.

Mother Teresa

People do not seem to realise that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

In spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.

Anne Frank
