things are so complicated around the world, it’s hard to watch the news anymore
You’re probably better off not watching the news. It’s filled with negativity mostly.
Im addicted to the news, I watch CNN all of the time.
But lately, there has been some pretty horrific stuff on the news - think that I will cut back on watching the news for a while.
I don’t watch the news because I don’t see the point. I can’t stop terrorist attacks or stop Donald Trump. I can just learn about crap that doesn’t involve me and then have a useless opinion on what to do about the crap.
I focus on what I can do, and I do it. I do more good with what I do in school and by striving to be the best I can be, because someone has to speak up for persons with mental illness- that’s what my research is all about and that’s where I come in- people who know me think a lot differently of schizophrenia because they’ve seen me do what I do, usually as well as they do it, often times actually better, a lot better. It’s punching stigma in the balls. I’ve been called an oxymoron by some- they say it’s a little odd that I am an outstanding psychology student while having the worst mental illness. I think it’s a good thing- it disconfirms the stereotype of a schizophrenic. Not too much, but plenty enough. If I didn’t have my flaws, I would be cast aside as an exception to the rule, with the rule still set in stone. Any less disconfirmation of the stereotype, and I would be just another nutcase.
All grounded in research which I cited in my thesis and incorporated into my project.
I don’t have a t.v. but I do get caught up in the newspapers…
I have to cut back… too much and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all that’s wrong with the world… and it’s easy to feel helpless…
There is a whole world of things that are in fact going well… but the news will never mention that.
Being an example is a strong point you’ve made. Instead of dwelling on what I can’t change I’ll try to be more of a good example.
