The news isn’t a statistically accurate representation. It shows only the worst of the worst, creating tension to keep you glued so sponsors’ commercials can then make promises to alleviate the tension.
But even if you do experience the worst of the worst, there are always 2 stories you can tell yourself: Either there’s no point resisting the problems, tension, terror…, or what hurts the most can become your fuel to make a difference.
I recommend Tony Robbins’ Netflix documentary, I Am Not Your Guru. Tony helps individual after individual choose a different story about the problems in their lives. I hope seeing real individuals make a positive difference in the face of unimaginable pain can restore your faith in humanity. But the story you tell yourself is always ultimately up to you.
