100 Hilarious Photos That Will Restore Your Faith in Humanity | 22 Words

We all need to feel good about the world we live in once and a while. And when current events get you down, forgetting that -- or feeling pretty bad about the world -- is easy. Sometimes it's nice to have a reminder that the world is full of wonderful people. So consider this your reminder!

Good people from every walk of life are doing selfless things every day. From awesome parents to thoughtful kids, hilarious (yet wholesome) memes to stories that will steal your heart, here are some true acts of humanity. I guarantee you'll be smiling by the end of it -- but likely much sooner! These photos are the pick-me-up you need on a below-average day.

These guys are happy drunks.

Just because you've been drinking, doesn't mean you're not still full of love!

A reminder that family can also be the people you choose.

Or maybe she's just a really photogenic kiddo. Either way, this is super cute!

This is a whole new level of dad-joke.

Pulling your kid over so you can have a laugh? Now that is a particularly good (and diabolical) prank!

This is such a lovely story.

I'm not crying, you're crying. Just look at that happy little girl's face!

These are faces of true love.

I can hardly tell which one is which! They've both got expressions of puppy-like adoration on their faces!

Senior year goals.

Wow. When David Harbour accepts a role, he commits. Also, how special is it that he actually went to spend the day taking adorable pics with this fan?

Honestly, same.

Not to be dramatic, but I would die for this dog. Following for three blocks just to see that fluffy face seems like a pretty reasonable mistake.

Find yourself a Trent.

This is truly the opposite of toxic masculinity: bros showing up for each other without worrying about appearances.

AWW, MOM.

We should all be so lucky to receive a sweet message like this during the day! That's the power of a mother's love.

Raise your hand if you like Minecraft!

After millennia of wondering about the secret to world peace, it might just be Minecraft all along

A true bro move.

Losing your phone is one of the most STRESSFUL things. It's good fortune that these guys found it!

Shoutout to campus security!

Good thing the little guy got off with assistance and a verbal warning. Imagine being ticketed as a turtle!

These guys are thunderstorm support buddies.

I feel you there, Victor. But it looks like you'll be taken care of and A-okay!

This guy is immortalizing tweets!

I can say this for sure: having twitter posts as wall art will definitely make for a conversation piece!

Little things make all the difference.

That gracious woman didn't have to go out of her way -- but her humanity here is inspiring.

Keanu Reeves is a wholesome guy, okay?

Keanu Reeves, everyone: teaching us to value ourselves, take care of and appreciate ourselves. Bravo!

Let's go hang out in kitty prison.

Prison?! That looks like paradise, TBH!

Look at her go!

Julia "Hurricane" Hawkins is my new hero. All of 103 and she's still grabbing life by the horns!

Politeness in the face of terror.

Aww! Even monsters fall under that golden "treat others the way you wish to be treated" rule.

You never know what a new neighbor is gonna be like.

But this one seems really sweet! He even made an effort to introduce himself in a language he hasn't yet mastered.

This is wholesome dad energy.

I wish I had a neighborhood library like that! Someone who takes the time to make one really, genuinely cares.

And this mom has mastered wholesome memes.

Ha! Tell your kids you love them in the language of their generation: an adorable meme.

Just saying hello!

How many people can say they spend the time they have off from work just saying hi and wishing strangers a good day? That's so wholesome!

You tell 'em, cowboy!

Just a friendly Texan spreading messages of love and peace to people who most deserve to hear them!

Reading is fundamental.

Change is happening.

Sometimes we don't see it, but people on this Earth do care -- and it's totally inspiring to see!

This US Embassy ain't got time for homophobia.

That's clever, too. Oh, we can't fly this flag? Fine, then we'll turn the whole building into a flag. The best part is, it would've been way more subtle if they'd just been allowed to fly the flag in the first place! But celebrating loud and proud is good too.

Man's best friend.

Look at all that unconditional love! And I'm sure his dog appreciates all the walks she still gets.

John Legend, everyone.

This is awesome: letting men be dads in the same way we already let women be mothers. What, are dads not supposed to know basic childcare? Because I'm pretty sure the good ones do.

15 years apart, but the love hasn't diminished.

You can tell by that story just how devoted this granddad is!

Why be patient when you can do this?

You go, Sir Patrick Stewart!

Using your privilege to help others is an awesome thing to do. People like Sir Patrick can really make a difference!

Empathy is everywhere.

Sometimes -- especially in public -- it can seem like a big world full of people who don't really care for those they don't know. But other people look and really do see others, and it's lovely!

Huh. Other people should start doing this!

Sometimes you don't really think about the things that happen around you: the people who deliver your mail, clean your streets, keep everything running smoothly. This is so nice!

Just one of the guys!

At the skatepark people do really impressive stuff, then try and fail and keep trying new skills. It's a big deal for kids to see people do that without being directed by a teacher or coach or whomever. -passingglans

Thanks, bro!

Because bros don't let other bros drive with hazards hanging off their cars!

Another example of good change.

That's a braille menu. Those of us who don't face the same challenges don't really think about it, but finally, we're beginning to!

It's rainstorm-chic.

Look at those puppy-ponchos!  I'm sure the pups are glad to have them.

Even bars have guardian angels.

This is the second time I’ve seen this on this sub, and it’s a different bar. Fantastic to see this initiative is working, such a good idea. -Beanzie02

Being respectful of every religion.

Good Manager, thank you. I hope even after the recent events, the manager continues to be as accommodating. Remember ppl, respect others, and understand you might not agree with them. But you can still be accommodating. -ProfessionalClick0

We all need friends!

When a Philippine fishing boat was rammed by a Chinese vessel in open waters, Vietnamese came to save them. They couldn't understand them, but these three words saved them. -aaadmin

An offer of mom-ing.

This is so sad and so sweet at the same time. I just want to hug him, and I'm glad MorboKat offered support. -zugzwang_03

How amazing is this guy?

Instead of stopping at justice for himself, he's now bringing it to others in need of help!

And I bet the kids who use it really love that cozy little corner. It's gorgeous!

Gifting others peace of mind.

So many people who could benefit from therapy can't afford it. At least this person got the help they needed!

Don't hate on selfie sticks!

Not when they come with reviews as wholesome as this. Here's to getting photos of yourself to be excited about!

A kid who cares.

WOW. That is an impressive head of hair, and it all went to good use!

An adorable source of shelter.

The real question is, what kind of monster wouldn't keep this sweet kitty safe from the rain?!

Supporting fellow passengers.

And it happens more than you'd think! My 15 y.o. daughter flew recently. She was seated across the aisle from me beside a stranger who looked like she was the same age as my daughter. They were both obviously scared about the takeoff. I looked over when we started to take off and they were holding hands. I thought it was really sweet. -fierdracas

A good boss looks out for employees.

They're like 69 cents each, the milk was one dollar at most, and all of my managers are very caring. It's kind of an "it's the thought that counts" type of thing. A simple act that cost the company less than $3 but still made my night. -0haltja16

Pure poetry!

So beautiful. Whoever this was, they were the heroes that we needed but didn’t deserve. -SchadenfreudeEmi

Brb, crying.

The usual stereotype is siblings that fight all the time, and this is such a sweet contrast to that!

And it was an alpaca all along. Look at the joy on that dad's face!

This kid loves his dad SO MUCH.

All he needs is a finger to hold. It's so pure!

Support teachers!

I know a ton of teachers like me. My counterpart (other person who teaches science in my grade) is also doing it. But, I was buying a lot of other things for them too, like colored pencils, markers, sharpeners, book bins, et cetera. Most teachers I know spend a lot of their own money on their kids. -BrinaBri

It's real-life Jimmy Neutron!

That is both super cute and SUPER impressive. You go, kiddo!

NBD, just more true love.

When all you need is the image of your significant other's name on a screen to smile at their presence. How lovely!

Some sibling cheer!

This little sister is playing Secret Santa every day of the year!

These guys are making their campus safer!

I work with the guy on the left. He's a great dude and genuinely gives a crap about the people around him. -anvilparachute

It's a party, deer!

First, this is so cute. Second, can you imagine that deer going back to its family? Hey, guys, you've gotta try this crazy food. Big things on two legs are giving it away!

They match!

I love this: a newly-formed family, celebrating for the whole world to see!

The true spirit of the holidays.

There are some truly amazing paramedics out there, and what these guys did was so considerate!

Check out this family keepsake.

This guy's early love of pokemon translated into so much love. This is the best kind of graduation photo!

Lots of turtles need a helping hand.

I would never get tired of watching shell bois being helped. -Gweeda

Encourage a musical talent when you hear it!

I mean, we're all pretty tired of the standard alphabet song at this point, right? She should mix it up!

Kindness on a whim is the best.

And so are free snacks! That's a surefire way to make someone's day.

Pancakes = love.

Everybody wants to fall in love...and everyone loves pancakes. The logic is there!

All dogs deserve love...

...And this little girl knows it! That note must have made this vet's day.

You never know when a milestone passes.

And you don't need to know the person to be excited for them, clearly!

Dad of the year.

Every kid deserves to feel the magic of holidays when they're young. It's such a special feeling!

This is incredible.

And it's completely true: Mr. Harrison is estimated to have saved over 2.4 million babies, and he's been giving blood once a week for 60 years.

Go out of your way to be welcoming.

This is a Methodist church and they have a motto of "Open hearts, open minds, open doors." -RadioactiveBovine

This man inspires others with his good deeds.

I decided to keep the act of kindness going! I created a go fund me account to buy stuffed animals and distribute them to kids in hospitals during the holidays! -@erica_lee123

This is anniversary gift GOLD.

And some expert-level husband-ing, for sure. How precious is this gift?!

Did it work? (Not gonna lie, it definitely worked on me).

This made me cry! This seemingly small gesture speaks volumes about the kind of person you must be. -@jolenta

Are you smiling yet?

Even if you can't adopt, there are ways to help out shelter dogs and make their lives a little happier.

Meeting the new family member!

You know what they say about first impressions... The baby is going to get a nice and formal welcome to the world!

Why did the citizen cross the road?

Take opportunities to help when you see them. It's the right thing to do!

Couple shenanigans are the best.

Even couples' drive-thru shenanigans, apparently! It's the little things, after all!

This is both sad and wonderful.

It's proof that love endures, even when the one you love isn't there anymore. And even still, they're keeping you smiling!

The best competition.

That mom is about to get a whole string of awesome hugs. Or maybe just an adorable dog- pile?

This is how you make a memorable date.

I hope those crazy kids make it because they look so cute right here. That really is goals.

A true star!

Looks legit to me. That's the perfect tree-topper right there! A merry Christmas indeed.

Even drug dogs need noms.

When you think you're being mistakenly busted...but then the doggie is just hungry. Aww!

Money can't buy happiness.

But it can get you a dog, and dogs are the very incarnation of happiness in physical form!

This guy has the right of it! And it's on YouTube, so lots of people can get the message.
