World peace please
Today has been a weird day in many ways. Right from the start I feel like I’ve been attacked with bad news from left to right. Sad stories about people dying from sickness, depressing and horrible headlines in the newspaper, people losing their jobs, endings of friendships and couples fighting violently in the middle of the street on my way home from school. Some days I simply feel disappointed in everything.
I also feel like it can be too much to handle. I have a tendency to over analyze and then I almost lose faith. Even though I rarely choose to read the newspaper, news attack me everywhere I look. I of course need and want to be updated with what’s going on in the world around me, but I need to draw my own limits or then it will effect my well being. Realizing how so many people struggle with mental illness, depression and terrible things that ruin not only their own lives but can ruin the lives of other people, makes me feel helpless and sad.
“Be kind to unkind people. They need it the most”
Sometimes I wish I could just close the doors to reality and live in a protected bubble for a while. All I know is that I need to remind myself that family, friendships and people that bring happiness and love into my life is what is most important. No power, money or success will ever make us feel as good as the people we love and whom love us. There is not much one person alone can do, but we can all control our own behavior and actions. Kindness and unselfishness is so easy to spread, but can solve even the most serious problems.
