Depressing people are a cancer in your life. Depressing media eats away at you.
I’m working to avoid both. There’s nothing good to be had by surrounding yourself with bleak and depressing thoughts. It just serves to lower your own mood and darken your own emotions.
Drop it; everything doesn’t have to be sad. When every story ends sadly, sad begins to lose it’s punch. It becomes an overused trope.
When every person is depressed, or always complaining — well, we all have problems. Winners are the ones who do something about it.
