The media floods us with negativity every day. The constant influx of distressing headlines and gloomy narratives can weigh heavily on our mental well-being, leaving us disheartened and overwhelmed.

But by consciously offsetting this negativity, whether through uplifting stories, humorous content, or inspiring messages, we can restore a sense of hope, optimism, and resilience.

Enter the Instagram account 'Tanks Good News.' Dedicated to what it calls "positivity with a hint of humor" it really contributes to fostering empathy, kindness, and progress on the internet.

It is NEVER too late to learn. I wish my mother would realize this. I'm 41, and I have learned new things and better ways to treat people more humanely and kindly, and to respect who they are and what they care about and things that are important to them. It costs nothing to use someone's preferred pronouns or proper name. It costs nothing to treat people of color as who they are - normal human beings like any other human being. It hurts me to see my mother be so purposefully racist, obtuse, and cruel, even to people she has never met.

When you are in that deep, dark pit, it is very difficult to see and hear the kindness around you. I am so very glad you saw and listened. I wish you peace and happiness always.

I love seeing this one every time it makes the rounds. A reminder that people are looking out for you even when you don’t know. There’ve been many times I’ve looked out for someone from a distance and probably vice versa. People do care about you!

There's nothing like facing the question of your own mortality to make you think about the things that really matter to you. When the pandemic started, given that I am not a healthy person, I was very much afraid that I might catch COVID and die. So I asked myself, "What's the one thing I really, really want to do before I die?" The answer was "I wanna see the Northern Lights!" Well, I got all boostered up and when I did catch COVID I came out of it just fine, so now to start working at going up North and seeing those lights dance in the sky.

This actually made me cry. I’m not even exaggerating, I can’t see my own words through a blur of tears.

It is devastating and horrifying to be an American right now. Fearing and hating your fellow citizens who choose to slaughter innocent people with weapons they shouldn't own. Those of us in America who are against assault weapon ownership feel compassion and empathy towards the victims of mass shootings. It hurts all of us as if they were our own family.

I have an Asian neighbour like this. I'm in my 50s I care for my mum full time who is 81. He did all our front yard weeding. I insisted on paying him, he said no way God pays him in blessings every day. I put the bins out last night and he was walking by we said our Helios. Went to put them back in and he had already done so for me today.

This is a lesson for all those who would’ve gone “f**k you you made my kids cry are you happy now???” after he said he couldn’t hold it the first time.

Same thing happened with my dog, except it wasn't the same litter. The owners had even given his brother the same name as him!

When my sister got a liver transplant it was like a magic spell— we could literally watch the jaundice start to fade from her face the very first day. The transformation was incredible. She’s had over twenty years of healthy life since, and we’re grateful for every day of it. Organ transplants are a genuine miracle of science. Donate your organs folks!

I have a locket from my childhood that has a picture of my pet iguana in it! My mom made me give him away, so I don't know what happened to him. But I still have the locket with his photo in it <3

I remember when it was possible to support your family with a job like that and have a happy life. Now it would take three jobs like one at Kmart (rip) to make ends meet and the ends would get stretch marks from trying to meet.

Reminds me of that adorable Christmas ad about the old guy who keeps lifting one of those kettle weights every day and his neighbours think he's being daft, but it turns out he's training for when he will lift his grandkid so the kid can put the star on top of the Christmas tree.

Can someone do this for me with the car wash? Every time I forget what to do first and I chicken out. I actually wash my car by hand to avoid it when I have to take it to the garage.

It's strange to see a person who willingly causes harm to people like the autism community do nice things for other people. Still not a fan of hers no matter her ticket prices
