Being human

What does it really mean to be human? How do we define it?

Some seem to struggle with that very meaning and cause us to lose faith and trust. Inhumanity leaves us feeling beaten down and sad. What does it even mean to inhumane? It’s an emotion beyond words, a feeling that cuts deep when it happens to you and you are on the receiving end. It’s usually unjust and leaves us angry, vulnerable, hurt and lost.

But then there are others who seems to have just a little more compassion and patience. Who are nurturing to our soul and who touch our hearts in ways that are unexpected yet so essential. The ones who give us the strengths to fight another day and who help us restore our faith in mankind just at the moment when we’re about to give up.

Being human may not always be easy, but it is the only way to coexist and live in harmony.

Can you imagine what could be if the effort was made and we took the chance to be human?



Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  1. What it like to be human? Well that is a great question and if I had to answer that from my point of view I would have to say that it is the greatest thing that we can possibly feel. Being alive today there are people that are never going to get another chance at life. So, being human to me is a miracle in itself. It’s not about how many cars and homes you had, or about the money in the end, or the boss your not liking at this time. To me it’s about leaving my footprint on someone soul.

    How can we not be thinking about how we are alive. We fight for that everyday no matter what is going on, at the end of the day you want to be alive to see another day no matter what going on around you good or bad.

    So, to close this comment. Being human is what I am doing now, I am touching your soul even if it is a pin prick, I am leaving a mark into your heart. And to me there is nothing better than being human to do such a miracle for someone else that needs it in there life…

    Again, thank you for making think about how I am alive and what it does mean to feel human. See in the end you might of came off the worse week of your life, but at the same time you saved someone life in this process of this post. Just remember that in your times of trouble your healing people and you don’t sometimes realize that power inside you.

    Take care and many hugs my tiger, this was powerful beyond measure here…

    1. Perfect and I couldn’t have said it better.
      Being human is so much more than just belonging to a species and to live from day to day. It is much bigger than ourselves and knows no selfish motives. It is leaving that footprint, touching somebody else’s soul and making a difference. To restore their faith in humanity and find pleasure by doing for others.
      And as far as I’m concerned, by no means did I have the worse week of my life, I just get tired sometimes. I will never give up fighting the good fight and I will never lose my beliefs. It keeps me where I need to be instead of lowering my standards. It will help me stay unique even if I have to fight against the grain and the popular choice of most others. I am a warrior of the light, sometimes I just want to lower my guard a little and relax from being that strong tiger all the time.
      A d as far as making a difference for somebody else, it is what I strive for and it was a big reason as to why this blog was started. If I can make a difference for one person, then I have accomplished what I set out to do.
      I’m glad you could enjoy this post and it brought meaning. Have a great day white crane….

  2. How innocently and unknowingly your posts touch the cords of heart. In awe of your writings. Definitely not a question to be taken lightly, what is being human? I vouch for respect towards others and letting their life experiences unfold the way you let yours, without judgement. This is just a tiny bit. I am sure we humans are worthy of doing much more that can benefit not only humanity but our environment and earth too.

    1. Thank you so very much Sherry, this means the world to me and I appreciate your kind, kind words.
      You are absolutely right and there is so much more that can be done, but it starts with one person at a time and if we can slow down a bit, we all have the capability to make an impact. I call it “The power of one”
