Many of us have a very bad habit – we focus on what we hate. We engage in the things that make us depressed, angry, or scared.
But we should be focusing on what we love. We should be seeking out the things that we find beautiful, that we enjoy creating, and that we bond with others over.
Pay close attention to the content you consume, the discussions you have, and the actions you take.
If we all collectively focused more on what we love, and less on what we hate, we’d live better lives.
Sometimes seeking truth (something I love) involves going against the grain of exaggerated group think narratives (something I hate). Otherwise, solid advice that can no doubt benefit the masses. Thanks.
I think they key is to examine what your intentions are (seeking truth)! There will always be discomfort along the way.

Being stuck at home right now is making spend too much time reading news sites and social media. A lot of what I’m reading makes me angry or upset.

Solid advice. Simple and yet often overlooked. Adding to my list of mantras to keep with me through the day.
In the way Marie Kondo’s advices, choose what to be kept, not what to get rid off.
I like it! Does what I’m focusing on spark joy?
