Let's be honest, the word can feel like an awful place day after day. For whatever reason, the internet feels the need to push this idea by only putting their absolute worst foot forward. Fortunately, these stories can serve as a reminder that there are still good people out there filled with chocolatey coated wholesomeness.

Reddit user, u/[deleted], wanted to hear something positive on the internet when they asked:

What's a very wholesome thing about you?

A Teacher For Everyone

I am a teacher (ELA, film, and photography). I gift all my kids a personalized book that I know they will like at least once year. I teach a few kids with reading issues so I find a film that they may not have known about but I think they will relate to for them. I also try to gift a photo of them looking amazing or doing amazing so that they have at least one picture from school where they shine.


Stockpiling For Later

I pay close attention to details about people so I can start conversations with them and find thoughtful "anytime" gifts for them.


A Hug To Remember, Every Time

My entire life I have hugged my mom when I say goodbye or go to bed. I'm 21 and in college now, so the hugs mean a lot more when I when visit for a weekend.

I'm also sorta proud of myself because it looks like I've trained my 9 year old brother to do the same thing :)


as a mum of 20-something year olds please know how much we treasure these hugs!


Less Talking, More Listening

I like to listen alot, I'm introverted so social situations are very exhausting for me, but I love to actively listen to people, especially because I understand and am able to grasp alot of ideas and feelings of others.

If you want to vent, I'll be your airconditioner, let's talk... As long as you need


Share The Love Of Reading With Everyone

On "Children's Reading Day" at our public library, I volunteer to read to young people.

The goal each month is not only to entertain them with engaging stories, but to stimulate their interest in reading and exploring the library's resources.


Play Away

At Dave & Buster's or arcades, If I see a kid staring at a game, I put my tokens in and tell them to play. Then I swiftly walk away so as not to look like a predator.


Alpha Den Mother

I have a really bad habit of mothering anything that lets me. Plants, animals, people, you name it. I am most definitely the mom friend of the group. If someone gets too drunk and passes out, I'm tucking them in and leaving a glass of water nearby. I'm always there for my friends when they need to vent or want advice.


Less Talk, More Action

I may not show my emotions with hugs or verbally, but if you are ever in need I'm there no matter what. Emotionally, physically, monetarily, I'm there


I love this! I'm also not really a hugger or talker so I can be hard to "help" when upset. But I appreciate it immensely when someone is just there.


They're Always In Need

I donate blood.


I almost bled out and I didn't realize the importance and selflessness until I needed 5 liters. So, thank you.


Fresh From The Oven

I bake often and always from scratch. Cakes, cookies, breads, etc. My (teen) son was aghast when he learned that some folks either use boxed mixes or don't bake at all.

Among the many reasons people watch, and rewatch, sitcoms is to imagine your life was more like the one you were watching.

Being able to afford a two-bedroom apartment in Greenwich Village on a line cook's salary, somehow always having the comfortable sofa available at your favorite coffee shop whenever you pop in, or having your best friends always available at your beck and call whenever you need them.

For the romantics, however, it's wishing you could have a romance like you've seen on television.

True not all sitcom romances are exactly the sort that makes you go all aflutter (Were Ross and Rachel actually on a break? And don't even get me started about Ted and Robin.)

Other sitcom couples are so captivating, though, that we would have given anything to be at their wedding... or at the very least go to their home for dinner every Friday.

And this includes plutonic couples, as there is nothing more heartwarming than a lasting friendship.

As an editor, I am not just in charge of proofreading and correcting style and format. I am also in charge of making sure all the contact information provided, such as phone numbers and emails, work.

After working for 10 hours straight a few months ago, I forgot to check the phone numbers and let a brochure go to publication with a phone number that did not work.

Luckily, a similar mistake had actually happened before with another editor for another client a year prior, so contact info on print materials like this brochure were checked by every department rather than just editorial, and the mistake was caught.

Since I didn't know this, when I heard the phone number was wrong, my heart dropped to my stomach and I thought I was sure fired. Luckily, I was just told to make sure this never happens again. I was relived that there was no fallout, but when I first heard what happened, my only thought was. 'I totally f**ked up!'

Redditors are no strangers to this feeling, as they've made egregious mistakes themselves. They are only too eager to share their experiences.

With the world's finances the way they are, it's a miracle if people can save their spare change.

Inflation has a stronghold on too many people.

Sometimes it feels like just breathing can cost you money.

It's hard to make and absurdly easy to lose.

So be vigilant with your wallet.

And try to spend on certain things in moderation.

Going out for meals three times a day adds up.

Even with Wendy's value menu.

We all have strong opinions about something, but when we think of opinions, we often think of hot button topics like political subjects.

But as it turns out, sometimes we can have just as strong of opinions of our preferred types of pasta.
