Of course you are.

People use that phrase as a weapon. It’s used to get people off your back. It’s used to make excuses for inappropriate behavior. It shouldn’t be.

The beauty of humanity is that we are flawed. We are born this way and almost certainly will die this way. But along the path, we try to get better. Luckily, the Battle of life forces us to get better. But if the Battle is too difficult, then you end up  focusing on your flaws, and asking others to do the same.

I want to focus on your strengths, and how you’re using those to make the world better. And I want to know you are battling to get better. You can’t be anything other than human. That’s something to celebrate. Don’t use that as an excuse.

What are some of the gifts of being only human?
