Thought for the Day – Humans Are Brittle

Human Beings are extremely fragile. No matter how many times we claim to be strong, powerful and astute in what we do or how we operate, we are very easy to break….mentally that is. We are the real gentle giants… those larger than life fairy tales we grew up with are not just fantasy, the characters that exist within them represent a side of who we are, who we’ve always been and who we will always be. We are able to create monuments that are stupendously high and great in stature, able to harness fossil fuels that have existed for millions of years, able to traverse oceans in tin cans and bear witness to primitive yet vastly intricate lifeforms that have existed way before humanity came to be, but all the while we are being maneuvered by simple impulses that make up this invisible but at times, distinguishably loud, inescapable and ever-present thing we call a “mind”. Our psychological wellbeing is brittle and can be cracked with the slightest push or the lightest caress from a loved one. A hug can trigger a whole host of emotions that in turn triggers a whole host of memories – some good, some bad, some terrifying.

Man has a long way to go before he is truly mentally sound.
