Emily: Focusing on mental health, communication, and understanding would help in so many different areas.

I’ve seen a lot of ugly in this world. But I’ve also encountered some pretty amazing people.

Sometimes we get overwhelmed and only think/hear about the bad parts of people or things in general. But there are good people out there. Those who help lift, support, and encourage you.

Currently, I feel that we all need to focus on our mental health. Some people don’t focus on it enough or simply joke about it. Going to a therapist doesn’t mean you’re crazy. We all need help sometimes. Focusing on mental health, communication, and understanding would help in so many different areas. Whether it’s related to crime, relationships, illness, racism etc. It’s not going to solve everything. But it’s a start.

I try not to get overwhelmed by the negativity or bad things in this world. But its tough.

Idk if that all made sense 😅I tend to ramble

Hannah Yohe: People who support your journey even if they would never do the same are people who truly care about you.

I think with everything going on it shows who you can trust and who you can’t. It brings the worst and the best out in people. I know so many people have their own views and opinions. So the people who see the world differently than you and still love you are the people you can count on. People who support your journey even if they would never do the same are people who truly care about you. I’ve noticed so many people have parted ways and so many people have gotten closer than ever before. We live in a very scary and broken world, but there are some truly amazing people out there that make the stars shine brighter and the colors of this earth more vibrant. Before all of this it was rlly hard to see who I could trust and who I couldn’t. But now it’s so clear. Even tho people wear physical masks in public it seems to be almost impossible to wear their metaphorical ones. They have become more transparent on their inner motives I’ve noticed the people who just love people despite their views are the people who are the most beautiful on the inside. People who go ist political views to love someone. Because when it comes down to everything, people just want to be loved. And those who do not love well probably haven’t been loved well. So now that the world seems to be falling apart, everyone has reacted with a a fight, flight, or love. It’s actually heart breaking to me to see people hate on someone else. Because they probably hate their lives. They probably think it’s the end of the world. And maybe it is. But that’s no excuse to make others feel like it. It’s cowardly. But I get it as well. People who are like that are terrified. Fear has overcome their lives. Because of you think abt it, fear is the root of all negative emotions. Anger, sadness, jealousy, resentment. Where there is those emotions there is fear. But the root of all positive emotions is love. Mercy, happiness, forgiveness, joy. Where there is those emotions there is love. So I’ve noticed there are two types people in this world who stand out. Those who fear, and those who love. We live in a scary world, so it’s okay to be afraid. But to let it trump your life and your emotions is probably an exhausting and sad way to live. So I feel bad for the people no one can trust any more. And I thank God for giving this world people who can love unconditionally with no exceptions like him. This pandemic has really shown me who those two types of people are. I do feel very strongly abt it. I do want people to know that there is love and beauty. I’m so many people experience such hate in their lives because the people in their lives feel a sense of power when they can make others feel worthless. Like middle school bullies. Ya know? I want people to see that they are loved and can be loved. And I want the people who hurt others to see how polluting it is. I want those people to see that their lives can also be happier if they didn’t let fear overcome their life. Cuz they too are valuable. They don’t need to make others feel less than in order to feel greater. There is more power in raising someone up. There is greater satisfaction in knowing you caused someone to smile in a world full of sorrow. And not only will they feel better abt life but when something sad happens they will have people who will help and support them, instead of being alone.

Danniella: there will be a lot more single individuals and people who build a life for themselves as opposed to a family/partner.

I went into the first lockdown in a 5-year relationship, and it ended because the stress of everything turned him to drugs and alcohol, and it wrecked us. In October time I met someone else who totally lead my on to think he was going to be a partner and I had known him for years… anyway it turns out he couldn’t make his mind up about me which was a real shame because he ‘didn’t know what he wanted from life’ I think social media is the biggest problem why people are not happy in relationships because they always think there’s someone else out there better. Too many people to choose from. Too many options/ ways to speak and communicate with other people. So sad, but I honestly feel this generation is totally screwed in terms of relationships etc, there will be a lot more single individuals and people who build a life for themselves as opposed to a family/partner. I’m 26 years old and absolutely do not see my life moving on in that direction anytime soon because even if someone was to fall into my life I don’t think I could trust them due to the way I’ve been treated by men and lead to believe things then dropped within an instant 🙄🙄 In terms of crime My dad is an ex functioning heroin addict and is currently in jail because of getting caught up with the wrong crowd. He is on supplements to get him off drugs, he is going well but was in prison remanded for a whole year due to COVID-19 because all court cases were so delayed. There is not enough support for criminals when they come out of jail, he has been in and out all of his life, but there’s no support system to follow up how he is getting on in terms of career, or putting him on the right path.

Christian Jayden : People need to look more into facts and truth rather than media and articles they read on

The worlds becoming a scary place. I love the adjust to not caring about our typical “social norms” if you will. But there’s so much corruption and hatred in the world now, and it’s honestly alarming. Not that there’s never been before, but it’s getting to a point where people are almost comfortable if you will being that way. Between all the shootings and the push back and hatred of protest and the just completely disregard of human life is disgusting. We as humans. Not people based on skin completion or religious belief or even age, need to come together and support each other no matter what. If there is an unlawful or immoral act performed on another human we need to stand up and speak back. We also can’t believe and let everything the media says. People need to look more into facts and truth rather than media and articles they read on Facebook. Life is to short and precious to spend it hating someone else.
