We are living in such a fast-paced world. Most of the time, it seems like we’re running in endless circles. Cycles and routines that we keep on repeating just to get through day after day. Amidst all of these, we forget how to function as decent human beings.
If you try to be observant, you would see people just walking fast without even pausing to care for a boy who stumbled on the pavement. You would see people eating alone, mindlessly putting food in their mouth, without even noticing the thin boy by the windows asking for food. If you aboard the train, people are so eager to sit down because they are so tired, not even noticing the lost old lady looking for some place to sit.

While there is nothing wrong with progress, and of course nothing wrong with going in with the flow. We should still remember to feel and to care. We are humans, after all. We are not designed to fully dedicate ourselves to whatever preoccupies us and act like robots acting on command. It is so rare for human beings to care and interact randomly, that whenever we see it, we can’t help but be proud of it.
Just like this man captured in the NY subway by a Facebook netizen. A man was playing with his phone while waiting to get to his destination. Beside him is a boy, who saw the smartphone he was holding, and of course, got fascinated with it. The boy decided to take a peek and unconsciously began to give hints on how to play the game. The man decided to let the boy play with his phone, and you can see the satisfaction and delight in the boy’s face.
Netizens who have watched the video were touched by the man’s kindness. Some even shed tears of joy because of the authentic reaction the man gave to the little boy.

These rare finds prove that we still have compassion and kindness inside us. All we need to do is to activate it and act on it. Try smiling more and interacting more. Take stresses, one day at a time, and you’ll realize there’s more to life than endless routines and cycles.
Live more, care more, and these would be the things you’ll happily remember in your old age. It’s all about the experience, it’s always been about that.
