I think we often believe the world is such a bad place because negativity is too popular.
Media makes their money by getting views. And when you have a world with too much media, your content becomes less about being right, and more about just getting the story out there.
Shock value becomes increasingly important. Which means that negativity gets highlighted.
I think we need to do a better job at praising Positivity. People should know about the good things happening in the world.
With the popularity of social media, we’re getting stories, and news, and information at such a higher level than we ever have before. So if a lot of that content is filled with negative thoughts, it can really impact our mindsets.
It’s not that I think positive stories don’t ever get highlighted, I just hope that when something becomes popular, or a trend, there are more positive, than negative ones.
