What reason do you think makes humans, humans?
Well, many answers.. how I see it, it’s the curiosity and the ability to quench it that differenciates us from fellow animals on planet Earth.
This curiosity drives us to explore new ways and grow in different way with respect to other Homo sapiens (humans). So, technically speaking despite of being equal human beings, regardless of color, sect and creed we are different from all other humans in many ways in the longer run (You’re free to disagree though). The way we grow, dictates our qualities and downsides. This way we see how just a different curiosity led us to being entirely different human.
Whenever an exam judges us on same scale, not every gem can qualify it. Not because they aren’t capable enough! They’re same gems as the winners, but their curiosity had drove them further away in other dimensions of thought and exploration. So, this must be clear that an exam cannot judge all of us equally.
Let’s talk about something else. I was hovering over my facebook home page, and I saw a number of achievements of people. To be really honest, I RESPECT all those guys but I never cared for what they are DOING. But why am I being told about their achievements? To respect them more? Would it mean I’d disrespect those who didn’t mention their achievements? Would I cut off with those who couldn’t achieve the same thing? Would I forget that not every exam is meant to be qualified by every human? Would I close my mind while thinking it’s the matter of curiosity and not the gut what differentiates us? Should I really be oblivious of the fact that non achievers are equal gems? Really?
If you have made it through this dry article, I’d like to tell you that I’ve witnessed people drove into deep depression because of the social media ‘Achievement’ status my other mates and possibly me, placed. Yes it was their right to share what they achieved. Yes they needed to tell their friends and family. But what about those who couldn’t achieve? Are they useless enough not to be considefed worthy humans again? Why don’t we kill them right away? Because the depression they face being “beaten” in the so called “race” is worse than death.
With this notion, I’d request you not to encourage pomp and show of achievements on facebook. Hearts around me who were differently able, value more than me, advertising my success. And I hope every human loving human will enentually think like this, or maybe can mentor my thoughts.
If you achieved something, spend time with those who missed achieving it. Be realistic, you’re not special, and they’re not ordinary.
