5 Daily Reminders That We’re Only Human

Lately, I’ve been thinking about all of the things that we subconsciously judge others – and ourselves – for because maybe somehow along the way, we were told that we needed to be perfect. Sounds insane, doesn’t it? Once we start to realize that our mistakes are a part of who we are and are a means of how we grow and learn in the long run, the more at peace we will all feel at the end of the day.

These 5 things are something we have all encountered from time to time and by shedding a more positive light on them, we are able to realize that we’re only human and there is nothing else we should ever be.

1 – We all make mistakes.

Mistakes are a part of life. If you’re not making any, you’re not putting in any effort.

2 – We all fall into some messy misunderstandings.

Communication is key and when we don’t allow ourselves to be open and vulnerable, it’s the unspoken words we tend to avoid the most. Put your heart out there.

3 – We fall in love with the wrong people.

Sometimes this happens more than once and you know what? It’s OK! For every wrong person you let into your life, you’re gaining a lifetime’s worth of lessons.

4 – Failure is a key ingredient to any successful journey.

You need to fail in order to win. Not everything is going to work, and that’s okay.

5 – Fear is crucial to your survival.

Fear is often avoided but when you think about how crucial it is to our lives, it’s hard to look back. Fear lets us know that what we’re about to do is important. It may be scary doing something you’ve never done or aren’t sure of, but that’s how you know you’re on the right path. We need to break out of our comfort zones to discover other sides of ourselves we didn’t know existed.
