I'm trying to have a dialogue where one character says something to the lines of "You're being really hard on yourself. You're only human."
That line doesn't feel right when dealing with an anthropomorphic bug character.
They consider themselves ant folk. I tried "folk" I tried "worker" (the general name for members of an ant colony.) But still am left with a blank. I could say "You're only a bug. Would that have the same impact?
