We Are Human

Last night I watched the Golden Globes with some friends.

While watching, I critiqued the celebrities: how they looked, what they wore, what they said. I critiqued the way the show was put together, too. Throughout the evening, some of the things I said were pretty harsh.

It is easy to judge when you're safely sitting at home in your pajamas.

In the midst of it, I realized something. We are human.

We aren't perfect. We're incredibly fragile. It's easy to be cruel. It's much more challenging to be kind, considerate, vulnerable, and encouraging.
