"We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone."

With the way society functions nowadays, we are stuck with dealing with different stereotypes and stigmas that sometimes forces us to stay in our own bubble. Too many of us are stuck on our social status, but in reality, that does not really mean anything. If we are all worried about being "cool" to others, then we are simply following the ways society wants us to be rather than being our own person. Stop doing what isn't you, and be a leader. Make a difference in the world that could change this game too many of us are blindly playing. Change someone's life by making a kind gesture.

Ronald Reagan once said, "We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone." There's so much going on in the world like poverty, starvation, oppression, and so much more. Unfortunately, we cannot end it all. We are only human, so the world could never be perfect. Who said we could not try?

Imagine the world we would be in if everyone just did a few good things a day. Help someone study, give back to those who need it, and even just complimenting someone. Every good thing we throw out in the world could put on a positive attitude on others that may be having one of the worst days of their life. It is a domino effect of positivity. Someone that you talked to might give back that positive attitude to someone else, and they may do the same to another person and so on.

One of the best things in life is being able to help others. There are so many ways to do that whether you would volunteer, give advice to those around you, join/start a movement, and so much more. We cannot keep sitting here and watch others struggle. Give a voice to those who are oppressed. Give someone the first meal they have had in a few days. Just take the time to figure out how you want to make a difference in the world, and you could drastically change a life or many other lives.

There are endless amounts of volunteer opportunities out there, and it only costs the time many of us would normally spend on our phones/watching TV. It is amazing to know that someone out there will feel a good change happening in their life. Every small thing anyone does begins to paint that "perfect world" that, although we may never get to, we could possibly have. It all starts with you making a difference.
