UGH … Why Do I Do this to Myself?!
…So, I’ve been back on Facebook 3 days and I’m already exhausted with the amount of negativity swamping my newsfeed. I don’t understand why I find Facebook so desperately depressing? It’s almost as though people deliberately seek out the most ghastly news and share it, so they can share their outrage and disgust, provoking others to engage and reply, spiraling this web of despair deeper, breeding negativity and in turn making Facebook a horrible site to visit.
Maybe it’s just me? Maybe it’s the people I follow? Which is a distressing thought as I know people personally on there. Maybe these negative posts just stick out more than others as they get bumped up by more replies.
Or maybe we are conditioned to be negative to make us complain and seek happiness in more material objects – getting gratification from one-up-man-ship and our own sense of self importance.
…So, How about instead of embracing the doom – Lets focus on the positive!
- What have you succeed?
- What have you done that you are proud of?
- Look at your achievements
- Seek out beauty
- Share a smile
- Help someone
- Ring / Text someone – Just let them know you care
- Be proud of yourself – of who you are and how far you have come!
- Dance! Put your favorite tune on and jiggle that ass
- Watch a favorite childhood cartoon on YouTube
- Tell bad jokes
- Make your own list of lovely thingies!
Share anything you want in the comments, which has brightened your day, lifted your spirits and made you laugh – Add your achievements – Embrace yourself and know that you too are significant – You have a right to say ‘I did that’ and it made me feel content and passionate about my life!
We are never, ever going to escape the doom and gloom in the world – we can’t always be positive all the time – but a little sunshine goes a long way …
Have a most beautiful day xxx
