It Makes Me Feel Uncomfortable to Write this Post....Friday, May 03, 2013
Day 3, Friday: Things that make you uncomfortable
A soothing picture, because thing's are about to get a little heavy...
Oh boy. This one is tough.
You see, there are a lot of things that make me uncomfortable. Probably more things than there should be! The older I get, the more I realize that I hate all things negative.
Now, I'm actually not a super happy, go-lucky person. I tend to complain a lot, and I feel like I could learn to be a lot more content. And I suffer from anxiety.
It's pretty much the worst, and those of you who experience it too know what I'm talking about. It's a difficult thing to deal with, but I feel like I manage it really well! I try to keep a positive outlook on life, and think on the good things, because that helps so, so much.
As a result, I pretty much try to avoid thinking about all of the terrible things in this world.
* It makes me uncomfortable to watch t.v. I don't watch the news, because it's depressing. If there are terrible things (like bombs, wars, shootings and other crimes) I would rather just not hear any details. I don't look at the headlines on msn, or yahoo, or anything like that, because it just bogs me down!
* It makes me uncomfortable to read online articles. I don't like to read comments sections on just about anything (except most blogs!), because people are just so mean! I know everyone is entitled to their opinion, and not everyone is always going to agree with me, but I hate it when people are rude and forceful in their opinions.
* It makes me uncomfortable to hear/read about politics. Some of my favorite websites are notorious for being extremely liberal. And that's fine, if you're a liberal. But as someone who leans a little more to the conservative side, I hate being made to feel like the bad guy when I read their stuff. Although, I am still a little left wing, and being around hard core conservatives makes me uncomfortable too. Can I just say that I am so, so happy it's not election time!
I'm sure I could go on and on, but I suppose they are all of a similar theme.
I would love to get to a place where these things don't bother me as much, and I'm sure that I will eventually. In the meantime, though, I will continue to try to focus on those things that are good, and happy, and light. And to try to keep this blog a space for me to share all of the positive things in my life!
