It sure would be nice to see bullies–especially rich ones–face consequences for their actions. There is such a crisis of accountability right now that many people appear to have accepted that certain members of society will never face justice.

That's something that society should never be on board with and we should normalize rooting bad behavior out. It's easier said than done, but it's one of many things that the majority of people would need to be on the same page about if society ever hopes to move forward.

There are many things we can do to make society a much better place for everyone. People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Cutelittlebunbun01 asked the online community,

"What is a thing that we should normalize?"

"Not having..."

"Not having an opinion about everything."

Social media has ruined this for everyone, hasn't it?

"I never find it awkward."

"Being silent when you have nothing to say. I never find it awkward, but I feel like some people do and they force themselves to make small talk. It's not necessary."

Business tip, use this to your advantage. People get uncomfortable with dead air, and will often fill it with things they were either holding back or did not intend to say.

"Doing 'social' things..."

"Doing "social" things on your own if you feel like it, like going to the movies or go out dancing."

Welcome to most of my youth and young adulthood. I still love getting out by myself.

"People only have so much energy..."

"Being OK with someone not being enthusiastic about your cause. People only have so much energy to put toward all the troubles in the world. Just because someone does not channel their energy toward your issues does not make them a bad person."

And just because they don’t show that enthusiasm online or to you doesn’t mean they’re not doing it!

"Changing your opinion..."

"Changing your opinion on a topic when someone shows you new information. It doesn’t mean you “lost” the argument, it means you’re wise enough to see the error of your ways and move on."

A growth mindset? You don't say!

"Helping..."

"Helping without expecting anything back."

[deleted]

I think we should add to this. How about helping without announcing it on social media?

"Men seeking..."

"Men seeking mental health care and not being mocked for it."

Caqumba

Access to mental healthcare needs to improve too. A lot of systems talk about 'parity of esteem' but only give it lip service.

"Men seeking help for being abused in relationships. It's horrifying to see my brother go through this and nobody believed him but me."

Sorry about your brother. It's good you were there for him!

"Asking how people are feeling with the intention to really listen."

_kionadreesmannx

This is a big one. It's so important. You'll keep a lot more friends around if you demonstrate you're a good listener.

"Having hard conversations..."

"Handling hard conversations instead of letting the problems fester and turn into bigger problems."

ResidentRepulsive

Communication is key and people who push back against it are not worth your time.

There are many things that we could add to this, don't you agree? The list is endless. Society isn't perfect, but we could always do more to better it little by little, day by day.

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

People Share Their Best 'F**k This, I'm Outta Here' Experiences

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

People Break Down Which Things Always Taste Good Whether They're Served Hot Or Cold

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"

People Dispel Common Hoaxes Some Folks Still Believe

Those who are truly superstitious have trouble shaking off customs which others might find somewhat silly.

These include holding your breath when passing a cemetery, throwing salt over your shoulder after spilling it, or not stepping on cracks for fear of breaking their mother's backs.

But even though it has been irrefutably proven that there is absolutely no validity to these superstitions, these same people will likely never stop performing these customs.

Nor will some others ever stop believing myths and hoaxes which have likewise proven to be one-hundred percent false.

Redditor Jimbo_Jigs was curious to learn the things people will never stop believing, despite ample evidence to the contrary, leading them to ask:

"What is proven to be a hoax but people still believe it to be true?"
