The Choice of Being Human NPM2023 11/30

It is unfair to do things
that you don’t like
even if people like you doing it
you don’t live for them
you live for yourself
it is unfair to you.

You should keep doing things
you love to do.
even if you are not good at it
even if people say you cannot.
They don’t live your life
you do.

There is no monumental acceptance
that someone else can give you
you are complete and enough
when you think you are

People can be part of you
and you can be part of them
not by force but by choice
that choice of being human
