Random acts of kindness from strangers really make the world go round.
We all have bad days, and sometimes, a simple gesture from another person can really turn that negativity around.
Maybe you were trying to pay for your groceries but your card kept declining. You started to panic, but then the person in line behind you stepped forward and gave the cashier their card instead.
Perhaps you were wearing light-colored pants while out shopping and didn't realize you had started your period. A kind stranger noticed the stain, and proceeded to hand you their jacket to tie around your waist, so others wouldn't see and you wouldn't feel embarrassed.
Or maybe you were trying to enjoy a drink at the bar, but some guy wouldn't stop harassing you. Another guy noticed how uncomfortable you looked, walked over, and pretended to be your friend meeting you, prompting the other guy to back off.
