I’ve always thought that it’s really hard being human. There are times when I think humans are so complicated that I don’t want to get out of the house anymore. Now, that view has changed a little.
It took me along time to realize I should embrace being human and start to love myself even more. How I see other people is related to how I see myself. There are times when I tend to hate myself because of my many flaws though I know that every single person on earth has flaws. And at times when I feel like nobody understands me, I feel like an alien. Sometimes I’d like to think that I came from another planet. Before it was easier for me to judge other people. When I classified a person as ‘ordinary’, I tend to not bother getting to know that person. Back then, I thought that because I’m ordinary, I should meet extraordinary people. I’ve met a few people who proved me wrong. Those people made me realize that each of us holds stories that are worth hearing even by just a few or a single person.When I was younger, I thought those people who live a simple life always get by easily, that their rough times don’t last. I was proved wrong again. We all have our share of problems. We all handle it differently.
I am trying to embrace being human. But I guess sometimes I try too hard I forget to breathe. As of now I am trying to take it easy. Pain makes us human. Imperfections make us extraordinary.
