Bitter Pill 03:15
Numbness 01:45
Desperation 03:01
What's Next? 05:56


Here are five musical expressions of these potentially challenging parts of being human: bitterness, addiction, numbness, desperation, and the unknown.

We are human. There's no denying that -- and yet many of us will try to escape that reality.
Being human is beautiful. The way we respond to that beauty (in both ourselves and others) has not always been beautiful.

1. Some aspects of our humanity can be very difficult. Alongside with the so-called positive feelings of love and joy are anger and grief. Sometimes, those can be a "bitter pill" to swallow.
At the same time, if we try to hide or deny these feelings, it can be even worse. It's important to illuminate whatever comes up inside of us -- at least for ourselves.

2. One of the ways many of us try to escape and deny our humanity is through addiction. Ironically, we can make an addictive process out of almost anything that can be good about life.
Again, the healthier approach is to be "real" with whatever we are thinking and feeling. In being truthful with ourselves, we begin the road to recovery.

3. One way that addictive behaviors and substances lure us in is by the (apparent) numbness we experience through them. Numbing out to feelings is a coping mechanism and may be helpful or normal for a brief time. Over the long haul, numbness turns us into zombies. And even zombies don't love other zombies. (So, let's stop doing that.)

4. In times of worry, anxiety, or significant stress, some of us become desperate. Acts of desperation rarely result in our desired outcome.

5. How can we be the best human beings possible? How can we embrace the beauty of our humanity? What's next?
