Seven billion. Recently, the population of the world has passed that number. Seven BILLION. That’s a lot of people. Depending on where you live (like in a big city), it can be obvious there are so many other people besides you.
We pass each other on the sidewalk. We sit next to each other on the bus or the subway. We’re constantly around each other, yet we live as if we’re divided. We recognize there are so many people around us, but try not to pay them any attention.
This can bring about an atmosphere of loneliness and loneliness is contagious. Fortunately, though, so is happiness. Break down the loneliness that divides us by giving a complete stranger a compliment and spread the happiness!
Even small statements such as “I like your hair” or “Nice blouse” can go a long way to brightening someone else’s day!
