Ignorance Or Bliss?
The news has me stressed recently.
I don’t watch news shows, I get all my news from more independent sources, mostly from Twitter. As I mentioned the other day, Twitter has been drowning these sources out in a puddle of rage.
It saddens me, because as an American, I think it’s critically important to be informed. An informed electorate is the bedrock of democracy, without it, everything else falls apart.
At the same time, I can’t see any more value in participating in this shit show.
Yesterday, I spoke to a friend of mine and he gave me some pointers that would cleanse my Twitter feed and keep it free from news and toxicity. In a short time, I’ll have my feed filled with entrepreneurship, writing, fitness, and positivity.
For the next month at least, I will be avoiding Twitter at all costs.
Now, I’m choosing bliss over ignorance. I’ll find a better way to be informed.
