Greeting AH (if I may), well, I am the token self-declared humanist in the bunch and I am, usually, fairly happy. :D

Tell us something of yourself please.

PS: I am prone to tupis typos so please bear with me.

Shorthand AH is fine!

I live in Sydney, Australia.

I may be a 'man of many talents' (ask for a personal weblink) but humbly enough, I would say I'm a very ordinary human, like anyone else.

It is an ongoing challenge for me to be self-disciplined and practise virtues of human dignity based on my very own personal definitions, with some caveats, some hurdles and some successes to date - the foremost part of my human dignity which in turn constitutes my self-esteem is

1. Integrity,
2. Others being kindness,
3. Intellectual rigour,
4. Cooperation and equity whilst living in the highly capitalistic, competitive Western world,
5. Resilience, cool-headedness and mercy in the face of antagonisms, adversities and emotional anguish,
6. Resourcefulness, timeliness and organisation,
7. Dedication and industry,
8. Empathy, sociocultural sensitivity and active secular interests, and
9. Excellence (no elitism) in personality, physique/health/fitness, academia/intellectual, scientific and philosophical endeavours, professions, creativity/cultures, adventures, socialisation and relationships/friendships (familial, sexual, etc.)

Will write more from time to time.

Not a bad list, AH, I am also a "Jack-of-all-trades" but perhaps a tad more relaxed! I go for The Golden Rule as my day by day guide and apologuse for, or forgive myself, small human lapses that do no lasting damage.

Perhaps the car window sticker I made sums it up:
Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

Welcome to the forum, Azurehuman, I am impressed with your list, you sound a little bit like a perfectionist, but I'm not judging! I have nothing against the quest for perfection.
My list is a bit shorter: I try to be nice. That's pretty much everything in a nutshell. It doesn't always work out, but I move on  ;)
And I must say, for the most part, this is indeed a happy place, so I hope you will feel comfortable and welcome here!

Dave, I love your sticker - I gotta 'steal' it, defying integrity... ;)

Dragonia, calling me a perfectionist which I hate to be whilst being practical and realistic - I shall take that as a compliment.

No one, I love your question! I think, I'd be the middle blue man since he's the most distant from the camera, flanked by two men on either side - this means that he's jurisprudent, extra cautious and more as a leader.

Everyone else, thanks for welcomes!

Hello and Welcome to our Forum,

Speaking of human dignity this quote from Eraldo Banovac echoes my own on the matter.

“It can be accepted that there is a price for man's work, time spent or service done, but never for human dignity.”


Hope to see you around some of the other threads soon.
