People are showing their true colors during these trying times. But on the other hand, it shows the ones who genuinely care about others. When people are down, our innate nature as social creatures is as clear as daylight. We need each other; we help each other because we’re in this together.
No one in life can survive without relying on others. Many times, we don’t realize it when someone’s act of kindness has helped us. But on the rare occasions that those acts are caught on camera or tape, people share those stories on social media like the subreddit ‘Humans Being Bros.’
There’s always a way to help others. You can start small from around your home and then your neighbors. If being physically helpful is impossible due to your circumstances, you can always head to the internet and find reliable organizations to donate to. If it’s financially impossible for you as well, genuine words of encouragement count as well.
