In life, all humans are connected. We all belong to the same species. Every single one of us is flawed. We are capable of both good and evil. We all feel positive and negative emotions. However, what truly makes us human? Why do humans have the need to be connected?
Two important parts of humanity are compassion and love. Compassion is what makes us human. It is why we help people in times of need especially in tragedy. Compassion shows that we care. Showing compassion helps people when they are the most vulnerable.
Love is that human emotion that makes us stay connected. It is why we want to feel loved. It is why we stand up for what we believe in. Love is why lasting relationships are important no matter what kind of love it is. It is why we have the desire to feel loved by others. It makes us feel safe and shows that others care about us. Love makes us feel vulnerable. But there is nothing wrong with feeling vulnerable because it is an important aspect of humanity.
In fact, the more compassion and love we show, this world will slowly fix itself. All we see on the news is tragic. It makes it seem like most humans are bad. But in reality most are good. The main place where we can see good is through those around us. Showing compassion and love can be something as simple as giving someone a compliment. Because we are connected, this one act of kindness will go a long way.
