If you think the world is all wrong, remember, it contains people like you and me.
"You and me" both are part of the "all" in this world. When we consider this hopefully we can recognize that our world, whether speaking globally or referring to the immediate area in which we are in, isn't an absolute of wrong doing & evil.
I don't think the world is too messed up & beyond repair since it still has people who are trying to be good. AND Hopefully "you and me" are some of the ones who are not all messed up. I remember hearing about a famous good person - Mother Teresa was I was younger. She was all about loving and serving the one, one at a time. As she would say, "If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one." (brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/m/mother_teresa)
When my children were little I bought these stuffed footballs. I knew that they'd want to throw things at times, happy or not, and even inside. Looking back they have gotten a lot of use in my house. Fortunately, we never had anything brake because of them which has been a plus but I know they were thrown during happy play and a few times not so happy moments. Our world purposely has good and bad in it, like gravity pulling us down. Without it we cannot build our muscles and be strong and so is the bad in our lives. We need the bad to help us recognize the good. If we try to make time to play a little, do a little good, smile, and help ourselves and the people around us then we can become the "you and me" who are actively making our world better.
Do not follow where the path leads; rather, go where there is no path and leave a trail.

It's better to keep your mouth shut and be thought of a fool than to open it and leave no doubt.

A pint can't hold a quart. If it holds a pint, it is doing all that can be expected of it.

What a different world this would be if people would only magnify their blessings the way they do their troubles!
