If you haven’t heard of Humans of New York yet, I have to say that you are missing out. Humans of New York is on Facebook and other social media accounts and it features fascinating stories of people all around the world. Obviously, it started out as an account with people from New York, but quickly grew from there.
I’ve read stories that have made me cry, parents who have lost children, spouses who have drifted apart, and elderly individuals sharing their biggest regrets in life. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried, and I’ve been inspired. And the account’s most recent post left me nodding my head and saying “yup!” because it featured a story that many of us can relate to — the struggles of having an unplanned pregnancy at a young age.
