If you submerse yourself into these kind of topics too much and lack a balance in your life it is going to breed negativity, and often times this is
how the extremist are born.
I have worked with a few people in my job who have been taken over by sites like this one, and has really hurt them they already had an under lying
illness so that is part of the reason.
It really comes down to the person and the initial state of mind as well.
I could probably lose my job, or be ridiculed severely for even belonging to a site like this now that I think of it.
I notice that ATS, and other sites with the same "atmosphere" has been effecting my dreams, I've had dreams of war, Obama being re elected haha,
and a few dreams about "Jesus" appearing in the sky and the government starting the NWO haha, yeah but I am able to say "they are just dreams, I
subject myself to this material, maybe I should take a walk, find some peace in the corner of my own little world",But I honestly have more
important, more immediate, more personal things in my life going on to really even let the things on this site/world effect to me to the point where I
lose a lust/joy for life, I need to take advantage of every minute I have, as we all should we don't know when we are going to die, we will all
probably die from something that has nothing to do with our fears, but don't let that fear of whatever come in the way of love for life or your
family, that is not a life worth living.
No matter how many ugly things you think there are in this world the more you add to the list, the more clouded the beautiful things become, and trust
me there is beauty everywhere.
There is simply beauty in the fact that you are breathing with a heart beat at this very moment, cherish it.
Everyone needs balance, some people strive for chaos, some people can not help to fall into the pit falls of paranoia or fearmongering, and some
people could sit on this site all day and live a happy peaceful life it comes down to how self aware you are, and the individual person mixed with a
little common sense, logic and reason.
