Georgina Onuoha, a Nigerian actress, has shared her ideas on what it means to be positive even in difficult times in a recent post on her Instagram page.

According to Georgina, “TO BE HOPEFUL in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history of cruelty but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, and kindness.

What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction.

And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvellous victory.
