following on from this post about tv i thought we could share what things that we watch that are considered safe, things like genres or particular programmes that you watch and you would consider safe,
i find it extremely hard to watch tv despite how hard i try but i am hoping something will stand out that i could try and watch without getting weird feelings.
things i consider safe are-
big bang theory,
game shows like tipping point or the chase (even though the are complete rubbish)
I think the internet is much more toxic tbh. Mind you to much escapism of any kind be it books, music, videos, games, TV, movies, drugs, alcohol etc etc etc isn’t good for anyone. As usual it’s all about balance.
the internet seems to be safe for me mostly, i have a macbook now so not many threats,
the real threat is someone stealing your details which happened to me at the start of the year when someone hacked my paypal account for about £500, luckily it was refunded but it could really have messed things up for me,
so i have changed my passwords and things on my bank and paypal accounts now,
I do have a difficult time watching tv. I try not to set off any triggers. I try to avoid them. I am a great fan of movies and I used to go a lot to the movie theaters just about weekly and yes, I watched a lot of television too. I have to say that I watch documentaries and television on Youtube I like romance comedy and movies about sz and game show are fun. You can always watch kid friendly movies, true stories that are inspirational. Educational channels are great, reality shows. Talk shows are good too. I really like BBC television.
I watch old sitcoms usually and the news to get the weather. Some of the modern shows are too violent and graphic and make terrible noises in my head. There is the show that is supposed to come on the Hallmark channel on Saturday night; The Good Witch. I am going to try to watch it. I saw an ad during the Kitty Super Bowl which my cat and I watched Feb 1 and the cat was precious. I am hoping it is just light entertainment with no violence and terror to enter my fragile mind; especially when I try to sleep. You just have to watch stuff that makes you feel good and doesn’t hurt you. I did watch PBS for awhile; but, it started to hurt my brain, too. Sometimes, there are wholier than thou. I went on a western kick for a while; but, the guns and violence soon got to me, also. The tv you choose to watch should be as comforting as the chocolate milk you drink!
