What it means to be human

My question is, can you even grasp what it means to be human

 besides the fact that we’re born, consume, grow, maybe reproduce and die? 

The facts state complex comprehension, language, emotion and self-awareness

 make someone human.

 Homo sapiens carry morals and can choose.

 Humans are creative beings with thoughts, turned into anything. 

Those who ignore their intuition tend to set themselves back. 

 The power of the mind is truly underestimated by society. 

But how do humans see humans? Most homo sapiens are extremely biased towards types of people 

and social groups. 

Every being is different, whether people realize it or not we are all the same. 

The facts state we were all built from unique genetic coding, we all have about 8% blood, all landed on Earth the same way.

We all have unique lifestyles and routines, 

people need to accept, as well as respect our differences. 

A common question is why humans purposely inflict pain on others. Most people believe that only hurt people hurt people, do you agree?

Those who ignore their intuition tend to set themselves back.

The facts state humans have the ability to choose. 

People choose to hate, people choose to hurt others, whether it is out of their pain 

or not, it is a conscious choice. 

But how do I see humans? I see humans as constantly evolving, powerful beings. People

 who use the knowledge around them for the greater good, tend to succeed. 

The facts state humans have intuition,

 an unconscious mind that generates a response or action based on past experiences. 

That “gut feeling,” that “hunch” you may get when you walk into a creepy room, is your intuition. 

Those who ignore their intuition tend to set themselves back.

Being human is about growth, acceptance, emotion, and consciousness.
