Does reading the news ever leave you feeling overwhelmingly depressed? I’ve found that I have to temper my media intake for my mental sanity. Maybe I’m alone here but it seems like the more I’m online the worse I feel.
Don’t get me wrong. I completely believe in being informed. I want to know what’s going on in the world and be in-tuned
with others trials. For one, it makes me grateful for so many things that I take for granted. Two, it makes me feel like those who are suffering and not doing so alone and in silence. But that being said there is also a lot of good in the world. There are many good, kind people doing amazing things. I only wish that media would do a little more to include the good with the bad.
If we don’t have something to inspire us to goodness we can become overwhelmed and want to give up. How can we help improve the lives of those who are suffering if we don’t feel that good is possible in our world?
