There is bad news everywhere

There is bad news everywhere.

Rarely do people look for good news, strangely.

I wonder how early humans coped without news, particularly bad news 24/7. Perhaps they simply enjoyed their lives and did not feel the need for drama.

Also, I have never been able in my life to change any news, including the bad. Accepting what is and realising it has already happened enables us to be at peace, even if we are not necessarily happy. Our dealing with situations is much better too when we do not label things good or bad, we accept them and deal with the situation.

Bad news will always be there if that’s what you need.

The addictiveness of good news

Our society and general culture, fed by mainstream media, is trying and in many ways has succeeded, to get us hooked on bad news.

It’s a habit whereby many have become programmed to consume untold amounts of daily bad news.

If we switch that off, and you can literally do that, and focus only on good news, either that of others or the things you do to create a positive outcome, then that is addictive too.

I know which one I prefer being addicted to.

Switch off anything other than good news, consuming bad news serves no purpose in our lives.

Other than to create hatred, judgement, greed, envy, the polarisation of differences, mistrust, and general misery/depression.

I have yet to find a person that does not get lifted by good news, yet we seem to deny ourselves this boost.

Search for good things, always, it is a choice we can all exercise and it is one of the true joys of life.
