Qualities That Make Us Human (Part 1) - UNCERTAINTY
Updated: Jan 19
In life you can only be CERTAIN once you’re close to the result of anything that you want or are achieving or have planned, even then it is NOT ALWAYS GUARANTEED. It is one of the many qualities that make us HUMAN. Don’t get me wrong, it is great to be certain of things and to have that surety that things will turn out the way you want them to be. However, we are also always uncertain that it might not turn out that way. You know all those ‘IFs and BUTs’ we get whenever we think of things to do or their outcomes… this is what fuels our uncertainty and it is what makes us humans after all. Being human MEANS to feel things and know it will be alright but also DOUBT those FEELINGS. In life there will be many situations where we DO NOT HAVE CONTROL over the outcome. Certain things or situations do have a definite outcome but not everything will be that way. Situations tend to turn out the other way sometimes but that’s fine because you will have the OPPORTUNITY to make it turn out your way the next time. Think of it as a homework assignment that was asked to be RE-DONE. The opportunities will always present themselves at the right time. All you must do is be patient with it. Even if you are uncertain about the whole situation at least you know it is a part of being human. It gives you a whole new way of looking at things.
Exploring the unknown requires tolerating uncertainty. – Brian Greene
