Putting it very bluntly, sometimes, the society in which we currently live in isn’t the most pleasant. There is always a feud of some sort going on for some reason or another, half of the world hates our current president, while some support him and the other remaining percentage just do not care about politics. Bullying in schools and even in the workplace environment seems to be increasing as well, and many people only react when the victim ends up reacting in such a drastic way that lives are lost. Nevertheless, why do we as a society seem to always react to things once there is nothing we can do. Often times a huge negative occurrence has to take place and then the action that follows is something along the lines of “because of them NOW we will try harder/better”. The thing is though, why aren’t we trying our best BEFORE such tragedies happen?
My solution to make the world a better place really isn’t that out of this world. It’s a simple random act of kindness towards at least 2 people every week. To me, that seems reasonable, because everywhere we go we are surrounded by other humans who may need that random act of kindness, and they aren’t going to tell you that they need it. 2 people, that is all, each week. Those two people, may or may not pay it forward to more people immediately, but they will definitely remember what you did for them and will pay it forward one day. The point is though, that I did my part in helping make society better, and slowly, it will pay off.
What will you do to help make the world a better place?
