There’s No One Like Me

There’s No One Like Me by Anonymous Human "What makes me human is that I’m one of a kind. Yes, we’re all human. But as an individual, it’s pretty cool that we all have different traits and personalities. Things would be really boring if we were all the same. So I love that I’m different than my friends. I love that I have tattoos but others may not. I love that I can express myself the way I want and others can express themselves the way they want to.

Dropping The Brand

Dropping The Brand by Anonymous Human  "We’re in a digital age where everyone seems to have their own personal brand or influence. It’s not a bad thing, but it can cause some ego problems.

However, it also means at times I will feel fantastic and full of joy. It means I will win and be amazed and feel on top of the world at times. I will be curious and experience gratitude for even the smallest...

Nothing Is Easy

Nothing Is Easy by Jessica "Beneath the surface is something that no one really gets to see. It’s the feelings and emotions myself and everyone else have. It’s the thoughts that race through my mind. It’s the self-doubt, anxiety, and worry that only I truly know about. But it’s also the confidence, the inspiration, the fun, and the joy. Being human is not easy, but nothing is easy. I’m one of a kind and every day is a blessing. I’m learning that it’s okay to be human, because that’s what we all are and that I don’t have to feel alienated or alone."

Learning To Love Myself

Learning To Love Myself by Anonymous Human ”Being a human for me is learning to accept that I am human by learning to love myself. I have had a hard time with this, but each day I try and acknowledge that the only way I can help others is by helping myself and to do this, I have to face down my demons, acknowledge my imperfections, and note that as much as I may want to be someone else or feel something different, I am myself for a reason and I have a choice to embrace it or try to escape it. And I have found that learning to accept and love myself has created opportunities to connect with others...
