What I mean is that those thoughts, they’re human. And just because you turn out differently than everyone’s imagined you would doesn’t mean that you’ve failed in some way. A kid who gets teased in one school might move to a different one, and be the most popular girl there, just because no one has any other expectations of her. Or a person who goes to med school because his entire family is full of doctors might find out that what he really wants to be is an artist instead.
If you made a better rat than a human, it’s not much to boast about, Peter.
Except the human all are crying seeing my pain.
Never take offense. Even if someone is robbing you blind, it’s usually nothing personal. Survival is a funny thing, and we all react differently to it. Some react to fear and forget to be human and humane, but that doesn’t mean they have malicious intentions. People have different boundaries, and I promise to respect yours, hon.
Don’t feel bad if your youth cannot be joyful, but at least make it useful.
In reality the concept of ‘other nation’ is wrong because there is only one nation: The Human Nation!
When it comes to people… you could aptly say that I am a racist… a human racist. I believe in people. There are good and not-so-good people of all colors and creeds. I’m not here to judge. Period. As people, we draw judgments from others when we behave badly, especially when we try to blame our bad behavior on others. This is not based on race, age, sex, or religion. It’s based on behavior differences.
Take care of your manners as seriously as your money.
Our raw imperfections make us real and make us human but they don’t make us.
We’re both just human. Nothing more. But also nothing less.
