Individual stories/Humans Of New York


These days I think we're so focussed on 'society' and that we tend to forget that within that society there are millions and millions of people living individual lives. No ones life is the exact same, we all live different moments, we all experience different things, different emotions, different feelings. We may go through something similar and that people can relate to but we never live the same life as someone else. I like to think that I've always been a person that remembers that but I know there are people that don't. Not so long ago I discovered an account that has fastly become one of my absolute favourite social media accounts. Humans Of New York you might have heard of it?
Just in case you haven't heard of it and would like to be filled in it's an account (Instagram) where photo's are uploaded of absolutely anyone and let's us hear a teeny tiny glimpse of someone's life and what they've been through. I find it so interesting because each little story is so different and sometimes you'll read something you would have never imagined. But I think it's a reminder that everybody has a story to tell and every body has been through or is currently going through something that we wouldn't know about. That's why I'm a firm believer of spreading love and positivity (God that sounds cheesy) but in all honesty there is too much negativity and hate in this world and I feel like that brings people down even more. I'm always obsessed with Instagram and I think this is such a creative idea. There really are a lot of brave, strong and amazing people in this world and that's something we shouldn't ever forget.

  1. I love Humans of New York on Instagram so much! I bought the book as well but I find the daily little stories about people to be so moving, especially now that they're covering stories from Pakistan.
