Isn't there a place to disagree, but clearly respect each other?
Today, I spent part of the morning with the usual direction of negativity and not taking responsibility - the only way the news media can keep up their ratings is to highlight the blame game, right?
Both incidents keep going on a bunch of assumptions and emotions.
Yesterday and today, after both incidents, I found someone to talk with about the issues. As a counselor, I know that one of the best ways to handle stress is to have as large as possible social network to get help with physical needs and getting advice, but talking with someone is the strongest.
On the other hand, there are people like Hans Rosling, Physician & College Professor, from Stockholm, Sweden, who developed a company Gapminder Foundation, continued today by his son Ola and wife Anna. He started with lectures JOY OF STATS, deciding a lot of our stress comes from all the negativity and information we hear, believe and have wrong.
For instance, there is a UNICEF statistic for 2016 that 4,489,000 children, under the age of one, died in the world - awful. The truth is that in 2015 it was 4,601,000. In 1950 it was 14 million. We have actually done a lot to improve our world, but that is not the headlines. Rosling makes fun of all us audiences. He has polled to find on multiple choices we all score worse than chimpanzees.
My suggestion is that one go to youtube.com and watch Ola Rosling and FAKE NEWS AND FACT RESISTANCE.
Get the facts!!!! Quit spreading my negative emotional assumptions. Find the positive. GROW!
