Today has not been a happy day. Reading disturbing news here and there did affect me badly and I was not my usual self full of energy. Somehow I had to get back and so I spent a couple of hours sitting in my favourte corner going through my holiday albums and literally living those images. Feeling much better now

Bad things affects our moods easily, So sometimes I am not willing to read bad news. I even try to avoid negtive person. Because they also affect my moods.

@allknowing That's really disturbing. That news are gruesome. What your government is doing especially the police and the people or even the politicians?

I am glad you feel a lot better now. I have spent all the morning in my mom's apartment. Memories come to mind, it's sweet and sour.

I feel the same way, when I see or hear disturbing news on tv and radio respectively. Though, I don't let it affect me much. I just pray that they will not happen to my family and love ones.

Sometimes I try to avoid depressing news.But we can't avoid bad news always.No meaning in behaving like an Ostrich.But it takes time and effort to recover from its effect.Anyway it is good that you are feeling better.
