Have you ever wondered, what makes us humans?
Is it the ability to think? To be able to communicate with each other through a common tongue? Or is it the innate ability to feel?
If it was the ability to feel then… I’m siding towards not wanting it. Then again, obviously I’ve got no control over things like emotions.
Yet at the same time, how can the ability to feel be the one characteristic that humans exclusively possess? We’ve all seen posts of animals (especially mothers) being protective of their pups. That’s gotta mean that they have the ability to feel too right, the ability to feel like they should protect their children?
If that’s the case, isn’t it a little far fetched to say that humans exclusively experience feelings, emotions?
Quite honestly, sometimes I feel like feelings are detrimental and good for nothing.
But how, how can we stop feeling without losing our very identity, without losing our very selves?
