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 17 2013: Doris, I wish I had a easy answer for you ... I don't. As the saying goes life ain't fair. Into every life a little rain must fall. The measure of a person isn't what happened to them .... it is how they handled the events. I hope that you can learn and grow from what ever it is that has happened.

    Humanity did not create these events ... individuals did. If it is at all possible forgive and forget. It would really help you to move on with your life if you can. If this weighs you down it is possible that others will see you as a person that is not happy or good company. Let the love and happiness that is you shine through and let that be what others see and love.

    This is a decision that is solely up to you.

    I wish you happiness and joy in your life. Bob.
