“One cannot be deeply responsive to the world without being saddened very often.”-Eric Fromm
So many tragedies have been occurring, one after the other. When I am presented with a major act of violence I find myself shutting it out. In defense, a wall rises to shut out the shock. It is too much to take in. All these tragedies, hurricanes, earthquakes, mass shootings. It has gotten to the point of seeming unreal. Shocked about the man made disasters more than the natural ones.
I could relate to this post on Introvert, Dear. If you are sensitive and/or an empath you need to limit the amount of negative and disaster news you are exposed to. Do self care to manage the stress. It is ok to avoid the non-stop news. You can counter all this negativity by contributing your positive energy to the world in a way of your choosing.
