All of us live inside our particular bubbles of society and without actively seeking out the wider picture, we never actually get to know the lived experience of real people outside of our bubble. Which is why I believe that the best you can do for your mental balance and understanding of your fellow human beings, today, is: follow Humans Of New York.
Every day or so, author publishes a short story told by a particular random person author met on the streets of New York (or around the world, when he goes somewhere else). Their fears, their hopes, their experiences, in their own words. Sounds trivial, but it's incredibly powerful stuff. Kids, elderly, teenagers, powerful people, people on the margins of society... Everyone, sharing their stories.
I make it a habit of dropping by every now and then and catching up. More than once I found myself ashamed of my (or what I perceived to be) problems when seeing what goes on in other people's lives. More than once I found myself with tears in my eyes. And always, always, I left with greater understanding and compassion for the world as a whole.
Go visit, now. It will make you a better person. We do need more of those.
