    I distance myself from bad news. I dont watch or read it anymore. I believe every Country has its problems, but believe me South Africa takes the cake. If I hear all the farm attacks hijackings etc I get so scared. Farm Attacks makes me sad cause its brutal. My home is so secured. I dont go out at evenings. I try to pull myself together now. Cant live in fear. Thats why I stay away from news.

    I deal with bipolar depression quite often. There are so many terrible things happening in our country right now and does become overwhelming. I read this quote about a month ago and it changed my perspective. I stopped concentrating on the bad and started looking for the people who actively helped those in need. I don’t want to minimize the suffering of others, I simply want to emphasize that there are people who do help and act when they are needed.
