DISCUSSION: Staying Positive & Avoiding The Negative

I am watching so many positive vlogs of Casey, Peter, etc. other photographers, vloggers, etc. Really made my day, and making me like the person I am today like I am a photographer, BUT, I need to get my gear back on track on doing what I love to do. So, when all of this pandemic is over, I want to get out, do what I want, and just live my life. What about you guys? What distracts you from all the negativity happening today?

Well, you can’t avoid the negative. You still need to be aware of what’s happening in the world. Even if it’s negative. You just can’t let it take control over your life.

Avoiding the truth doesn’t help.

Still it affects my health, like okay, sure I need to know what is going on in the world, I just don’t want to keep my mind on it for too long, I want to keep my mind on a positive level, like sure, let’s balance positive and negative. Because I overthink a lot, and which I need to stop doing that, lol, and I am not really avoiding the truth, the truth must always comes out.

I am still watching on what is happening around the world, I still am, just not too long, it really really really, affects my health, heck, I’ve already seen enough disturbing things, pictures, videos, etc. I want this world to really change, and make it a better place. So, now, Im just trying to relax and just focus on positive stuff. Mental Heath is serious, and something not to be pushed away, or avoid, or, well u get my point .

That’s basically what I’m saying. People shouldn’t “avoid” the negative, bc that’s impossible anyways, since there is so much bad going on in the world, but also, because people need to be aware of what’s happening, and not just “avoid.” Avoid to me sounds like “ignore”, and people shouldn’t be ignoring what’s happening, because this is real stuff, and we need to acknowledge the fact that people are suffering.

All I’m saying is, don’t let the thoughts of all the bad stuff happening now, take over your life. So positive things, like you said. But don’t try to “avoid”, what’s happening now.

I know that. But what’s going on now is also serious, and shouldn’t be pushed away, or avoided.

All of this that is happening is affecting me mentally too. I get what you’re feeling, and I’m not trying to ignore what you’re feeling.

If scientists working on finding a cure for this virus just avoided what’s going on now, then people would be suffering even more. If protestors just avoided all the racism that’s happening now, then less awareness would be spread about racism, which will contribute to the continuation of racism. If doctors avoided what’s going on now, more people would be sick and dying from this virus.

I get your point, still, people are still doing the right thing, of talking about this, keep on sharing important information that others need to know, people are still watching, they are still donating, people want change, others are still trying to help countries that are suffering and still need assistance etc. omg I even forgot what I was going to say, ahhh. XDD Anyway, I’m just gonna lay down, I’ll be back to discuss more later…

What distracts me from all the negativity happening today? Well, what distracts me from any negativity and my thoughts in general is painting and spending time in nature. Been doing a lot of that recently and it’s peaceful :blush:
