I find myself getting worked up over stuff that has no impact on my life, and worse still things that I cannot influence at any rate.
I have a habit, or had a habit rather, that found me checking both a certain social media site and various news sites regularly, throughout the day.
On one hand, it is good to keep up on things, but on the other, sometimes all they can do is serve to aggravate you. In so doing, that can and will negatively impact your life.
I still hear the news in small bits on the radio, and that’s fine. I am still working on me not yelling back at the radio my opinion.
As far as that certain social media site (or all of them for that matter) I find that just scrolling through it will invariably find numerous things to aggravate me.
I have realized that many people will have many opinions about many things. Not everyone has to agree with me, and that’s okay.
I just need to get through this world in the best way I know how and let others do the same. I don’t need to make sure that all people think and speak like I do.
All I ask is that we all “play well with others.”
So, I am seriously reducing the time I spend checking the news and social media. I see little point in aggravating myself for no good reason.
Even in the one day that I have been doing this I have noticed a huge improvement in my overall mood.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
