I am losing my faith in humanity. How can I restore it?

Most of the things that I see and heard is how evil humans are toward each other. Human in nature are evil and selfish though I know there are still good but it seems like evil outweigh good. Lately there are things happen in my life which lessen my belief on positive things and losing my faith in humanity. Of course there is a part of me that don't want this to happen but my reasons why I should trust again is shattering.

    Oct 16 2013: out of humanity gas,run down,seeing life as bleak? this is both a perspective vision and a biochemicsl one.. Ive been where you are numerous times and similar to a chess game you must execute your next ten move robotic like till the swell of negativity subsides. I would reccommend tying your psychi (ship) to a more positive person...a child under two is very good...who takes great joy,not in its public reputation but personalizes each accomplishment....tying shoes,colouring,the world,animals,music....allow anothers joy to be alongside your dismal perspective as much as possible. The other advice is exercise...hire someone to move you...this will help with the chemical lockdown of depression...Ive been through suicide,rape,assault,overdoses and starvation ,and torture..seriously...and I still worship aspects of humanity with a passion that permeates down to the core...but a method was downloaded to generate a path for healing(no psychiatric drugs were depended on) ,,,just a path drawn through humanities best moments healed me

      Oct 17 2013: I just wish I could find someone who is positive and joyful for sure it will help me. What you been through is much more heavier than mine and you made it through. Perhaps I will make through somehow someday..

      I will take your advise about exercising. I guess that is one of the reason. I don't' much physical activities because I work at night.
