Fragile Life


‘Human beings invent just as many ways to sabotage their lives as to improve them.’
Mark Goulston 

We are human. We will make mistakes. We will hurt other people and other people will hurt us. We won’t always feel happy and positive.

Next time you feel the urge to beat yourself up over any of these things, remind yourself that you are an imperfect human being instead.

I am only human: I have been in love, and I have been heartbroken. I have felt so amazingly happy, I felt like dancing, and so extremely sad, I felt as if I couldn’t live another day. I am only human. I have been stressed. I have been depressed. I have been all alone. I have been joyful. I have been blessed, and I have been grateful. I have gone through the trials, the pain, and suffering of life. I have had ups and downs in my relationships. Sometimes pain can bring about clarity and remind us we are still breathing!

There have been those days when I have felt my heart could not take the pain any more, and all I wanted to do was wake up from this horrible dream I felt I was living in. There have also been days, when my heart overflowed with so much love, it truly took away my breath. I am only human.

My life is anything but picture perfect. I have been hurt by the ones I have loved, and hurted by the people I called my friends. I have felt cherished, special. I have taken what life has thrown my way, and made it through.

Sometimes, behind the smiling face of those dear to you, is a broken, hurting, wounded person. Take the time to ask, show you care.

Maybe one day, when you are feeling as if you cannot take another step, someone will look you straight in the eyes, see right through to your soul, and say: ‘No. Your not okay. How can I be there for you? After all you are only human.’

Man is harder than rock and more fragile than an egg.’
Yugoslav Proverb

    1. Thanks for your comment Sarvjit…..we need to remember that we are united by the reality that we are all distinct and individual. But we are harmonious in the reality that we are all held on this earth by the same gravity. We do not share blood, but we share the air that keeps us alive. Julia
