News can be sore and needs dipped into in manageable pieces. Social media can be a place to avoid. People taking the opportunity of being in a little walled bubble to be spiteful and nasty, say things they’d never utter in a room, face to face with someone. And social media can be a place to bring rafts of creativity and support. I discovered another little something this week which I love. I don’t really care if it’s true or not, it’s lovely either way.
Sitting on a bench beside an older man, a lady said “The world is so messed up now, I just don’t know if it can ever recover”. The man said “You are reading the wrong news. You need to write your own headlines.” He demonstrated with two sample headlines… “Grandkids Drop Everything To Visit Grandma Through Window When Ill” and then he said “Old Man Makes New Friend”.
It made me smile and I’m keeping it as my news of choice. Writing your own headlines on a daily basis can help very much.
