I've noticed recently that the phrase "Erghhh, I've lost faith in humanity " is frequently used and often without a lot of thought and it upsets me. I know this is often said without meaning but it's a big, negative, degrading statement and for someone who depends on enthusiasm and positivity to keep going, it's a scary statement.... an it makes me sad. So I decided to be prepared for it because here on Don'tBurstMyBubbleXx we specialise in positivity so I thought I'd make a collection of reasons to have faith in humanity that we can remind people of when they think they're losing it !
Music : There's so many different types and endless songs and pieces that have been and are still to be composed, but people all like different types of music and yes the music is different but from Justin Beiber to Brad Paisley to Slipknot.. it's all music and that links all of us . Isn't it amazing that one thing can be so flexible to fit anybody .
Charity : How much money do you think all the charities in the world raise every year out of pure human kindness ? It's A LOT . Things like treatments for cancer, life saving aid to countries suffering natural disasters, education for children in poverty ridden countries and so SO MUCH more ! Purely as a result of human kindness !
The Hopeful Notes : I've talked about Carrie Hope Fletchers Hopeful notes before on Don'tBurstMyBubbleXx endlessly but essentially they're positive messages on post it notes left for strangers to make them smile ! Random Acts Of kindness like this are done for know reason just to make a stranger smile because why on earth not ?
" Have A Nice Day " : Shop assistants tell you to " Have a nice day " ... isn't that just really nice ? I know some of them have been told to say it to the customers but they're saying it and be honest with yourself, how likely is it that they're being insincere ? Would they honestly in reality like you to have a bad day ? I like to think not :) If they don't tell you to have a nice day I think it's nice to assume they're having a rough day and just forgot so why not tell them yourself :)
We've come a LONG way : Okay, yes the world isn't perfect, not by a long way. But were learning, were improving . Bad things are still happening and that's awful but we will learn and with a lot of hard work develop as a race become even better . It is important to focus on where we can improve in a helpful and practical way when working out how to proceed but it's still important to recognise how far we've come ! Only recently, gay marriage has been legalised, there's equality among races and feminism is making great strides, our technology is more advanced than ever and who knows what disease we'll cure next ?
These are just a few of the main, general ones that I wanted to talk about today but I've made a pinterest board to go with this post ( that you can find here ) filled with lots of heart warming stories and examples of reasons to have faith in humanity ! I would love to hear your ideas and reasons in the comments !
Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :)
Lots of love, Marianne xxx
