There are more good people in this world than bad. You may not think so, but it’s true. The bad ones make a lot of noise and cause a lot of trouble, so they’re the ones we see on the news and portrayed in books and films, but your average human being is a good human being. And that’s a fact.
Although it’s always important to be careful in life, from whom to trust to what time you walk home on your own, it’s also important to remember this. Sure, the guy who saves you from drowning might be planning to shave your hair off and sell it as a wig but, more likely than not, he’s simply trying to save your life. If most people were bad, nothing would ever get done. There would be no such thing as society.
So be alert, yes. Be sensible, yes. But try not to be afraid. If you’re afraid, you’re letting the bad guys win.
