Social media and the internet can be a toxic place. It seems there is something about these platforms that drives arguments, conflict, and general poor behavior from people. That’s not always the case, however, as the people in this article demonstrate. Sometimes good people have the backs of others in very wholesome ways.
Wholesome Halloween buddies.
Everyone appreciates a good group of friends. When one member of this squad was limited in their ability to celebrate a certain holiday, this guy’s friends wanted to make sure their friend was as included in possible. That’s a solid group of friends right there.
You can enjoy things that you aren’t an expert on.
It might be important to point out that the person’s profile photo is of a superhero. Comic books, Marvel, the DC Universe, etc. can feel daunting to a new fan. There’s so much to know but thankfully, people like this guy won’t make others feel bad for not knowing as much as those who have been fans for longer.
Delivery drivers are an important part of our communities.
The original poster here seems to think that just because one doesn’t go to a fancy school or get a degree to become a delivery driver that it somehow is an important part of our society. Considering the number of things we’re getting delivered lately, these people should be put on a pedestal and widely respected.
Also, if you could wash your hands that would be great.
There are two hard and fast rules regarding bathroom etiquette that will never go away: Wash your hands and flush. No other signs are necessary.
Just let people enjoy the books they are reading.
Have you ever been excited to tell a friend about a book you’re reading only for them to interrupt you to express astonishment that you haven’t read it yet? Don’t be that friend.
Speak lots of languages!
If you ever find yourself upset that people around you are speaking another language, try shifting your perspective on the manner. Maybe learn what language they are speaking and study up on how to speak it. Learning new languages can be fun and a great way to meet new people . Also, insisting that people around you only speak the same language as you is kind of a jerk way to be.
The difference between science fiction and fantasy.
Sometimes people get annoyed at other people who know less about a subject than they do. Not this guy, this guy loves talking about subjects he’s passionate about.
Check-in on your friends.
If you haven’t heard from a friend in a while, it doesn’t mean they are a bad friend, they might be going through a bad time. Check-in on your friends, even if they haven’t checked in on you.
Blake altered his approach.
Blake here adjusted his behavior based on new information. He kept the word “baby” in there though, that’s his go-to, and nothing is going to change that.
If you can’t handle me at my worst, hey that’s kind of understandable. I can be a handful, you know?
If you are going through a rough time and your friends aren’t 100% there for you whenever you need it, it doesn’t mean they are bad friends, it might just mean they had to take care of themselves for a second.
It can be this easy, sometimes….
Granted, it doesn’t always work out as well as the person in this post suggests, but sometimes it does. It’s simply about being respectful to one another.
How did you spend your quarantine?
Many people seem to assume that we should all come out of quarantine with a new skill or ability. As if we haven’t been dealing with crazy stuff this whole time that might prevent us from doing those things. We’re all coming out of quarantine having been through a unique experience and with gained perspective. It’s okay if you didn’t learn to knit like you said you would.
Thank you for making class fun, professor.
The original poster here seems to think it is appropriate to harp on this professor for trying to make class fun. Well, doesn’t it make more sense to thank a person who went to extra effort to make something fun?
Your kids don’t need to be quiet in coffee shops or cafes.
Cafes and coffee shops are not libraries. If someone is doing work there, they have made a conscious choice to work in a place where sounds are much more prevalent. Also, if someone is working on the patio of a cafe, you do not need to prevent your dog from coming up to this person, there is a good chance that random dog greetings are exactly why they are on the patio in the first place.
No experience, no problem!
Have you ever noticed that most jobs seem to require that you have done the exact same type of job previously? All that has done is bring about a system of people lying on their resumes and faking experience when they get jobs. If you hire someone without experience, at least you know you are getting someone honest.
Everything you’ve ever been told about the stages of life is wrong.
Teenage years can be very difficult. There’s a lot to figure out. If you are a teen, don’t let adults tell you everything sucks when you grow up, it’s not true. Also, it is never too late for anything.
It is fine if someone likes Fortnite
So the kids today like Fortnite, what’s the big deal? Should they be playing Mortal Kombat with the blood codes turned on like previous generations?
Star Wars is for everybody….. except for maybe Anakin.
Star Wars isn’t for men, women, or people of any gender. It’s just a story about laser swords, good vs evil, and Anakin Skywalker murdering children.
Different things empower different women.
Feminism means freedom. It’s hard to have that with a strict set of rules on how one should act, dress, and behave. It seems like that might go in the opposite direction somewhat.
Adults can paint their bedroom whatever color they want.
A really fun part of “adulting” is learning there aren’t actually any rules for things like this. There are people who want you to do things a certain way, but you don’t have to listen to them at all. If a pink bedroom makes you happy, then paint your friggin bedroom pink!
Do what you can, few things are all or nothing.
If you are considering going “vegan” or “vegetarian” don’t get bogged down by labels and identities. It’s not about that. It’s about making changes that you think are for the better. If there are some changes you are having trouble making, it doesn’t mean you can’t still make the changes you can, even if that means you don’t fit a certain label.
You don’t have to come out if you aren’t ready.
Some people seem to think you are required to be super-open about your sexuality as that will help others be open with theirs. That’s not very sensitive to how difficult this can be. If you’re not ready, then you need to do what is best for you.
You can go back to school whenever you want.
Some people think that if you didn’t go to college or university when you were in your late teens or early 20s that it is simply too late. That’s ridiculous. Have you ever seen students in their early 20s or late teens? They aren’t exactly the most organized bunch, most of them are still trying to figure out how to live without their parents doing their laundry. You’ll likely be a far better student if you go back when you’re a little older.
Jesus doesn’t require a lot of follow-up questions.
Does it not feel like the whole message of “love everyone and be a good neighbor” that is present in most religions gets lost on a lot of people? Just be nice to people, all people, and maybe don’t talk so much.
Trespassing is fine!
Video games have become so popular that teenagers simply aren’t loitering outdoors anymore. It’s gotten to the point that people with docks are begging someone to litter up their property.
Playing your video games on the easiest level is nothing to be ashamed about. Especially if it’s Grand Theft Auto. Do you want a challenge or do you want to drive really fast and make things explode?
God having a Twitter account sure has helped clear up a lot of confusion. In this Tweet, God clarified what marriage is. So, there shouldn’t be anymore hullabaloo over that one now.
Did Bette Midler just shame a bunch of kids at a museum?
Bette Midler opted to spend some time shaming kids looking at their phones whilst in a museum. What a great use of her time! A commenter then pointed out they are likely using the museum app to learn more about the paintings. Or they could be playing Angry Birds too, we really don’t know.
Everyone at the gym is on their own personal fitness journey.
Some people seem to think that the gym is just for muscular fitness freaks who are competitive athletes. This is not true. It is for anyone looking to improve their physical fitness. Whatever level you are at, that is just fine.
It’s not like Stephen King is a bad author.
There can be a bias against contemporary books in the world of literature. Somehow books are regressing in quality in these people’s minds. Stephen King is a good author because people enjoy reading his books. It doesn’t matter that he’s not from the 13th Century.
Kassy here wanted everyone to know that they are not entitled to celebrate Lunar New Year unless they are from or invited by someone from a culture that traditionally does. Andy saw this as a great opportunity to invite everyone to celebrate the holiday and now we all can!
The outrage of buying a bikini for your son.
Don’t judge Skweezy Jibbs here too harshly. He comes from a time and place when boys didn’t buy bikinis at the start of summer. That’s when bikinis are the most expensive. You buy them in the fall when they are cheaper, like a real man!
What makes someone a car person.
This goes with most other things too. A car person is a car person because they like cars. Nothing else is really required.
The right way to react to a burqini.
There is no right way to react to a burqini. It’s not something that requires your reaction. It’s just a woman going for a swim and doesn’t warrant anything beyond what you would typically give to a woman going swimming.
Dog mamas are mamas too!
This is a rather heartwarming story of how one mother (of human babies) was able to see that a woman who has pugs is a mother in her own way as well. Also, those look like some happy pugs!
The books you need to read before you die.
Reading books is supposed to be fun. Just read what you want to read and don’t worry about the expectations of others.
You don’t have to be good at something to like it.
Arts and hobbies aren’t supposed to be all tied up with making money. They are supposed to be all tied up with having fun and/or being creative.
Eating alone at a restaurant means you’re awesome.
Some people think it is perfectly fine to look down on people who eat in restaurants alone. Why? People need to eat and if you eat at restaurants someone else will do your dishes. You don’t need to exclusively do this with other people.
Unicorns are for everyone.
Some people think boys shouldn’t play with unicorns. Why? They are flying horses with a horn on their head. That’s awesome regardless of one’s gender.
Anyone can be tired.
Have you ever mentioned you are tired and someone with 3 kids is like, “how are you tired?” As if that person was never tired before they had kids. They never knew what tired was before they became a parent. They had been wide awake the whole time leading up to the birth of their children.
Big guys can love little ones too!
Don’t judge a book by its cover. Sometimes the biggest, burliest looking dudes have the biggest hearts. We’d bet a story like the one in this cartoon literally happens every day somewhere around the world.
You don’t need kids to be a family.
A family is a family regardless of whether or not children or marriage is involved. It’s just a group of people who have each others backs.
Laugh hard, laugh often.
It’s important to laugh and see the humor in things. If you do this so well that you sometimes can’t even finish a story, be grateful.
Taking an interest in how interested some people are in their interests.
Isn’t it amazing how some people can be obsessed with things that seem like nothing to others? Bird-watchers LOVE bird-watching, car enthusiasts LOVE cars etc. It’s a neat part about the world.
Not all country boys are bigots.
Just because you love country music, pick-up trucks, football, and blowing things up with fireworks doesn’t mean you don’t respect the basic human rights of others.
Good guy restaurant owner.
This restaurant owner noticed someone had been growing through their dumpster looking for thrown out food. A better idea, they figured, was inviting the person in for free food.
Online friends are friends.
Many people have groups of friends they only know through playing video games online. Look, sometimes you need people you can rely on for certain missions. Over time, these can turn into real friendships even if you don’t meet up “IRL.”
Working people are my people.
If burger-flippers startmaking the same as this guy, he’d be happy for them. It’s not like he loses money or benefits because they gain them.
Love for no reason.
Well, isn’t this just the most wholesome sign you could possibly ever see? There does appear to be quite a lot of hate for no reason, so this person is going to fight fire with fire.
Just be nice.
Evidently, the Wantagh Memorial Congregational Church had had enough with hateful members of its religion. They just wanted to remind everyone of where God stands on the issue in case they don’t follow him on Twitter.
