We build our own community.
A good friend of mine recently said the above to me, which strikes close to home. Considering the amount of time we spend with other people (either interacting on social media or in real life), the type of people we surround ourselves with play an important role in how we view the world.
I’ve been purging a lot of negativity on my social media recently, and started to follow accounts that radiates positivity and support, such as @diversityinacademia
. At least this helps me to increase positivity in my social media feed and helps me to stay focused on my goals.
Another thing that I’ve just found out recently that might also help is to subscribe to The Crunch
. They send out newsletters every two weeks and share some good news about humanity and people from around the world. This can help you to not only learn about things that are going on elsewhere in the world, but also makes you feel better and more confident about the state of humanity.
I think this should be all for this issue, hope you’ve found it somewhat useful. Don’t forget to think and write down the things that you are grateful for this week to help you stay positive about life. Feel free to share them with me by replying to this email as well, I’d love to hear some good news from you if you have things to share! :)
Until next time, stay awesome and take care!
