I am known for my positive optimistic outlook about most things. I am a bright happy person most of the time. If I am sad it is usually for a short time and I find a way to fix whatever is making me sad.
Right now, it is getting more and more difficult to remain positive. I have made a conscious decision not to listen, watch, read the news. The general ignorance of society is heartbreaking. I do not engage in negativity on social media. It is full of bullies. If someone is being negative when speaking around or to me if I can, I disengage and walk away.
I am so tired of all the hate and discontent in this world. When did we become a planet of narcissistic know it alls?
I want to lash out. I want to call it like it is, to say, that is enough. I want to tell every negative voice to be quiet. I am struggling not to lash out. I am struggling to remain positive. Depression looms in my peripheral like a black cloud waiting to absorb the light in my life.
Some say I am practicing avoidance. That it is not healthy to avoid conflict. I am not afraid of conflict. I am choosing to not allow negative energy to enter my space of peace.
