What does it mean to be human? To me, it means don’t be a dick, be kind to yourself and others, and always try to spread positivity to the people around you. We are all different, but at the end of the day, we’re all a part of the same race: human.
Being a good human means to fight for what you believe in, and to always be the best version of yourself; it means don’t strive to be perfect, strive to be YOU.
We walk past so many people each and every day and we never know what kind of struggle they may be facing what may be going on in their personal life. Saying hello to strangers seems like such a weird thing these days as we tend to isolate ourselves into the friend groups which we identify with, but it’ s such a small and simple thing; you never know what saying hi to a stranger could do. You could brighten up their day by simply smiling at them or waving to them in the hallway, and making new friends will always open up so many opportunities for you.
I’ve learned a lot about myself in the past few years, moving away from home, living in a new city and meeting all new people, but I wouldn’t be where I am today if I didn’t talk to a few strangers along the way.
behuman is a clothing company based in Halifax, NS and is a brand that reminds us that we’re all in this together. I’m a brand ambassador for the company and it has been one of the greatest experiences in my life. Not only has behuman reminded me how important it is to be a good person, it has also given me the opportunity to meet so many new people and even brought me closer with people I already know.
So do something nice today, be kind to others, nobody’s perfect and we all make mistakes. We need to learn to be accepting of one another and embrace each other’s differences.
