I’ve seen several times that when I’m feeling down or out of sorts, it’s because I’m not giving myself the space to really be in my life. I’m not sitting at a desk all day. I’m not going to a class. I’m not doing as much reading as I want to. I’m not going to the gym.
Ive been doing a lot of reading lately and Im finding that I need to take some time to focus on what Im reading or doing. Ive been reading a lot about the state of the world and Im seeing a lot that is depressing. Ive been reading a lot about the state of my marriage lately and Im seeing a lot of that as well.
All of this stuff is depressing. The world is depressing, my marriage is depressing, the economy is depressing, and even the economy in general is depressing. Im not a doctor, but I think that the medical system is the most depressing part of the economy. It makes me shudder just thinking about it. I know Ive been reading about the state of our economy, but it makes me feel like I dont have enough money.
I can relate to this. I hate reading about the state of things because I feel like I have too much of it. I feel like the way I have things is wrong. I feel like I have too much, and I really dont want to go through that again.
This is because we have too many people who are addicted to news. These people feel like they are getting too much information and they cant stop. They feel that they are being lied to, and they cant stop. This is the same thing that makes me feel like I dont have enough money, because I cant stop looking at that news. It also makes me feel like I have too much information and I cant stop reading it.
I have no doubt that a lot of what makes people feel bad over this is because they are addicted to the media. This should be a thing of the past. We need to take care of our information so that we get to the “truth” of our lives. This is as much about control as it is about having lots of information. It is up to us, the users, to decide how much information we want to consume and how quickly.
This is not a problem that everyone has. There are a lot of people who feel overwhelmed by information overload. That’s fine, some of us want to read the news all the time. However, many people just don’t have the time. I’m not suggesting that people should simply turn their computers off.
Control freaks have their own feelings about information overload. For the most part, we’re not out to control the world. We just want to know what is going on. But we know that this is a double-edged sword especially with the current information economy, where all of it is available to anyone with a credit card. We can read news that might be negative, and if a person is upset, we can post it on the internet.
Well, we’re not the ones who could post it on the internet, but we’re also not the ones who are reading it anyway. There’s a lot of information on the internet these days, and a lot of it is not necessarily positive for us. We can control our own information.
