15 Stories Proving That The World is a Place Where Kindness and Compassion Still Exist

By Meera Kaushal, 23 June 2018

One of the worst things that we do to ourselves is that we get affected by all the negativity of the world and stop looking at the things that show the kind and compassionate side of people. This tendency then clouds our vision of living in a humane environment and all we feel that there is nothing good in this world. But, this is far from the truth as we have people around us who keep doing things for others and make us believe that compassion still exists. When we can deliberately look at the bright side of the world, we can do our bit of spreading positivity around and thus making the world a much better place to live.

Take a look at these 15 stories that are going to change your perspective:

1Saving life

This man found a bag in the trash can and found something important. What he did next was that he traced the owner and returned the bag to him, which eventually save the owner’s life. There were important documents in the bag and his scheduled heart surgery couldn’t have taken place without these documents. Unknowingly, this man saved someone’s life by just doing what he thought was right at that time.

2A line of trucks

This particular scene happened in the US, where a man wanted to commit suicide by jumping off the bridge. Something unbelievable happened at this location as almost 13 trucks lined up under the bridge so as to save that person’s life. A group of people did what was necessary at that moment to show him that his life was precious and he could not die under their watch for sure.

3The best neighbor around

Just read what’s written on the note in the picture and you will know what we mean. I so wish that every neighbor was like this person. Truly, who thinks this much about anyone around them, but here we have a pure soul who did what was right and made an impact.

4Small notes of happiness

Being a source of inspiration in this world is a great thing and one doesn’t need to be a top-notch motivational speaker to do that. This mailman here does his job while passing on some sweet little notes of happiness by writing them and dropping in people’s mailboxes randomly.

5Life-saver

You must be wondering what exactly is happening in this photograph. Well, the woman was trying to commit suicide and just then God sent this police officer to the spot. He handcuffed himself to the lady and threw away the key. Yes, you read that correctly! This is what he did to make sure that she hangs onto her life by just being there for her.

6The hearty donation

Carol Suchman of New York actually bought an entire toy shop that had declared its bankruptcy. People may have thought that she wanted to save the toy shop per se, but what she did was even more special. She took all the toys from the shop and donated them all to children living in foster care.

7The human chair

Standing for a long period of time becomes a task for the elderly. When a few people were stuck in an elevator for hours, this college student volunteered to become a ‘human chair’, so that the elderly lady could sit and rest for some time.

8When kindness pays you back

The special thing about kindhearted people is that they do those acts of kindness without ever expecting anything in return, but that is when life gives them the sweetest gifts. A homeless man gave his last £3 to a girl who had lost her card so that she could get back home. The girl then spent 24 hours on the street along with some volunteers so that she could draw the attention of people on the lives of homeless and even started to raise funds for the homeless. She collected some £42,000 and gave money to that man and other homeless people.

9A truly caring heart

When you see young adults such as these in the world, you feel that the future of our planet is not so bad. Just how simplistically and amazingly she declared that she keeps batteries for her friend, in case of an emergency. Who does this sort of a thing in today’s world?

10Gratitude

Today’s young nurse Montana Brown fought cancer twice in a hospital; once when she was just 2 years old and again when she was 15 years old. Later, she decided to become a nurse and started serving in the hospital that had saved her life.

11True love

This may be the saddest story here, but we need to share it with you all for the love that this couple had for each other. Heather and David Mosher married right in the hospital where she was getting treated for cancer. And 18 hours later, the bride died. Nothing more I can say now apart from this, “Salute to the MAN.”

12In Loving memory of their Pet

The owners of the late dog kept a basket of balls on a beach so that other people could play with their pets. Read the whole message put up by the owners and you will know how much they loved their baby and how they remember him when he is no more with them.

13The cutest couple

The lady here suffered a stroke, so severe that she lost her memory. The condition was so bad that she used to have difficulty in even reading. So, the husband took it upon himself to teach her how to read again and this is what one of their sessions looked like. Isn’t it the sweetest thing one can do for their partner at this age?

14Free service

When every business just feels like it is out there to only take advantage of people, shops like this stand up and do something humane. Helping people have clean dresses for an interview where presentation matters a lot is really a big thing that the owners of this business have taken up.

15Rescuing animals

This photograph was taken in the Marikina City of Philippines in 2012. The floods in the city had resulted in loss of life and property, but this man did a great thing for the animals he found in the flooded area. He took care that the puppies stayed safe in the house; even if it meant that he had to go through some difficult situations. Love for life (of any form) is the greatest love of all!
