How to not get affected by negativity ~Please Help
I have bad anxiety, I worry about everything. I also get very depressed sometimes about my life.
I get so upset and can't get over what some people say think/say. Everything someone feels or says takes a toll on me.
I read forums and news articles online. The comments make me cry. The stuff people say makes me so upset and it makes me hate people. Telling others they should die, and saying nasty stuff about people with disabilities and mental health problems. Even on news articles. About a kid who did a dare and almost died. People were saying he should have died since he was so stupid.
I cannot believe this world. I cannot believe how hateful it is. The only thing people care about is money. I read an article about a girl who quit her high paying,very stressful job, and started a low paying job that she loves. The comments were all saying she's a millennial and needs to grow up, and that life isn't easy and now she ruined her future.
Why? Why is money more important than happiness?
I know a family who lives with their elderly parents. Everyone's happy and they enjoy life. But people talk bad about them because they live with their parents. Why?
The people in this world disgust me.
I cry and get migraines caused by my anxiety from thinking about these things. From taking in all the negativity and hate.
I try to spread positivity and acceptance. Only to get a bunch of thumbs downs and nasty responses saying I need to grow up and face the 'real world'. The 'Real world'? You mean the mean world created by people like you? Saying this is the 'Real World' and we just have to deal with it is such an excuse. An excuse for people to be mean and judge others.
The world should not be full of hate and negativity. You should not hate your life! You should not hate what you do every day. You should not have to be put down for doing what you enjoy/want rather than what's 'normal or makes a lot of money)
I don't know what to do anymore. I like to read news articles and to spread acceptance. I like to be positive. But there are so many negative people who just like to be mean and don't care about others feelings or lives.
