I love life, but it can get depressing

I do get depressed sometimes, the news is never good. However I have found a way to lift the depression and have some fun. I have found that in the sound settings on the computer, there is a pitch shifting function. Try pitch shifting up a few semitones, then listening to the news. It's hilarious.
Now I'm just saying, that with all the negative news we get bombarded with on a daily basis, it can be hard to stay focused on being positive. Most of what is broadcast in the mainstream is, I believe, negative on the whole. That must be by design. So by shifting the pitch of what I am listening to, it just doesn't get me down so much. It's like a reminder that our thoughts are the most important thing we have, and have control over.
This way I can listen to mainstream news, and not forget that it is just a show, a program, and I don't have to buy into it.

Sorry if this is just too random or weird..

Well... this popped into my noggin' and it's relevant as long as you are still human... it's all relative and perception is everything... literally.

Yep. Life can suck sometimes. These past few days though I have broken through! I admit for this one moment(s) today I have fallen back, but again the world is beautiful. We just need to step outside into the Sun.

I just don't watch the news, personally.

You always have that option, as well!

At least take breaks from it.

Go for a month or three months not following the news just to see what happens. You'll find that you can survive without it!

i have done that so the times i "serf through" and land on the news it is W T H seams so strange that they are that worked up about every thing so yes i avoid the "lame stream media" news paper so take a break can help, words i should live by myself. to a take step back from myself and take a breath ,walk the doggie, color in a coloring book take a walk something to break the pattern and disrupt the flow of negative energy and thought keep n mind that these "talking heads" are PAID to keep ratings up so do not buy into the hype

Thank-you all for your kind words. I know life can suck sometimes, but it is worth riding out the bad times, because the good times are always worth it in the end.
It is the reason I love ATS so much. Always can find some balance here. I have been loving this site for years, but only recently started posting. Glad i have and encourage others to do the same. Long live ATS and all the good souls on here. Cheers to all!
