Humanity Switch.

Updated: Jun 1, 2021

If you are a fan of the vampire diaries or if you have seen the series earlier, you must know what I’m talking about. For, those of you who haven’t let me tell you what it is. Humanity switch is a power that vampires have and by switching this abstract switch on one can shut down all emotions like guilt, sadness, etc. Well, you must wonder why I am telling you about this. The reason is that I believe that we have this switch too, and I used to have this switch turned on for some time.

Usually, the vampires turned their switch on to shut off the human part that was left in them, and also it was great for not dealing with emotions and a simple way to shut off every human emotion and to run away from dealing with one’s emotions, it was a shortcut, and you might even think of it as a great thing but believe me, it’s not.

Earlier in my life because of my education and certain other factors in my life as a young adolescent I was dealing with a lot of issues and my disorders and anxiety were kicking. I was in such a dark place in my life that I shut out all my emotions and put on a happy face. I lived my life in such a way that the feeling didn’t matter to me; I was living, feeling nothing and for some time I thought of it as great for being happy, it was later I realized I was living in a pseudo-world.

Shutting out all these emotions didn’t make me forget all these emotions, but what it did was that it hid them away from me and no matter whatever I did they found me and haunted me even more because the truth of life is that no matter what you do you cannot run from your past you can do nothing to undo the things that you have done in your past they will always be there.

I learned you can either keep running away from your past, be haunted by it for the rest of your life, or you can stop for a moment realize and accept the things that you have done in your past. The only way for you to make up for the things you have done in your past is to learn from your experiences, your mistakes and make sure you never repeat them in the future as a wise old mandrill also once said:

“Oh yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it. "

So, remember this always and accept your past and do what you can in the present to have a good and amazing future instead of running and hiding away from it and letting it become your weakness.
