The internet often likes to tell us that the world is messed up. You open up the news and there's a shady corporate deal that will probably take a huge toll on the environment. You click away to a social media platform and your friends are sharing links to the article you just tried to escape. It can be very difficult to break this cycle. So the Facebook group "Heck, this is super wholesome" is here to help.
It's a place where people share anything that makes them happy. They keep their posts clean and try to be nice to one another. It sounds too good to be true, I know, I've been on Twitter, but I assure you, everything's real. This group is legit. And here's a collection of its most popular posts to prove it.
The owner of "Heck, this is super wholesome", Yuki Rahman, told Bored Panda she launched it at the start of the pandemic in 2020. "I thought of creating a group where we would only share wholesome vibes to make people happy and that's how it all began," she said.
And it immediately took off. Even though it's still a baby in terms of Facebook group age, "Heck, this is super wholesome" already has over 122K members.
"The most popular things in the group are animals and kids, but there's pretty much everything that makes people happy and/or boosts their creativity," Rahman explained.
"Our community is really wholesome. Just like the content in the group. Getting this big wouldn't have been possible without them. The members share such amazing and wholesome stories, we constantly make each other's day."
But Rahman also acknowledges and really appreciates all the hard work done by the group's admins and moderators. They put a lot of effort into maintaining the group the way it was intended to be.
It's very important these days to keep your spirits up. Many people in the world are not doing so well. We all have our problems. And they can get the best of us. That's why it's so awesome that groups like this one exist where you can go and look at adorable pets and heartwarming moments that restore your faith in the future.
When you see sweet moments like these, all you can do is smile. But remember that you can also the happiness with your friends. Even if it's just a link to a cute photo, spreading positivity around the world will not go unnoticed.
We often forget how important our emotions are, not only to us but to those around us. We come home grumpy, wake up with the thought that we hate our job, etc., the negativity can swallow us. However, if we enjoy our hobbies, spend time with our friends and family, spread some love and happiness, and try to see the brighter side of things, we realize there's so much more.
