I’m becoming more cynical than ever before. I’m normally a positive and idealistic person. I try to look for the good in people and life in general.
I don’t like feeling so negative. I think that I’m reading too many newspapers, watching too much television, and being on the internet more than I need to.
Highly sensitive people need to deep-think the reasons why they are feeling negative. I know that I need to break this negative mindset before it “poisons” my feelings about everything.
I’ve decided to not let the mostly negative news affect me. By cutting down my media activities, and coming to a logical conclusion that the bad news that’s reported is the exception rather than the rule.
People are generally good and decent. The horrific stories that’s reported is rare. There are more honest people than not. I refuse to get sucked in by this media circus of negativity!
I can’t close my eyes to what’s going on in society. There are bad things that happen and there are dishonest people. We all need to be careful and aware of them, but we have the control to not let them cloud our attitude towards life.
I’m interested in any thoughts or comments that you have.
