Feelings of doom

:iconoddfox17:

These days, it seems like bad news is the only news worth reporting. Climate change, natural disasters, revolutions, discontent in the middle east, religious extremism. All sorts of stuff.

With all this crap going on, I can't shake the feeling that we're on the verge of something horrible; some apocalyptic event that will damage society beyond repair. I don't know if it'll be confined to the United States or if it'll be world wide. I don't know if it'll be economic, political, or environmental. Hell, I don't really know anything at all. All I have is this feeling of impending doom.

Then again, maybe I'm just being paranoid. The media tends to make things sound worse than they really are. And besides, all of this stuff has happened before in the past.

But what if I'm right?

I could really use a little support.

If the world is to burn up like a match then it was meant to be, but can't live life on the verge of destruction but what one can make the most of it. Animals aren't humans leave it be to that but they do sometimes have the better judgment. We are suppose to have better. :)

You're right. Economic, likely precipititating political. The trigger MIGHT be environmental. (a drought would make it worse, as would a corn shortage like the one we had years back).

You're right... so now what? That's the same situation I'm facing... i'm trying to earn $$$ so I can do something... it probably won't happen.

I watch...and worry also. My way of dealing with it is to work on a food supply. And to Have a plan in a worse case scenario. I don't think that being prepared is being paranoid as long as it does not take over your whole life. There will always be SOMETHING going on in the media....Doing little things like storing food, supplies and making plans can make you feel better.

OH and to those out there who think having a food supply is "crazy" A years supply of food and necessities goes a LONG way towards helping out with even un-cataclysmic things such as...unemployment. Not having to worry about where the next meal is coming from is a good send in this case. Been there....done that!! Nothing wrong with being prepared.

AS far as I know it, things are just getting worse because the devil has control of the world and wants us all to die just like he is dead. Only God can save us now.

The problem is you probably have too much free time to spend on bullshit.
Stop eating bowls of bullshit in the morning.

If you spend your days worrying about negative shit all you're going to do is be negative.
Take care of your health, work towards your future, try to be a good person, do your part.

There are nutjobs who sit around consuming and propagating conspiracies and then there
are nutjobs sitting around worrying about those conspiracies. Get off the short bus!

I doubt news would be news if it was always happy 24/7.

What if you are right? What should you do then, you think?

Prepare yourself if you feel you need to, but don't go beyond that if it hasn't arrived yet. If it comes, then at least you'll be prepared and you'll cross that bridge if you get to it. The future isn't guaranteed.

In media, the mantra is "If it bleeds, it leads".

For example, consider the following two headlines:

"Air Balle Flight Crashes On Runway At Halvorsen Field."

"Nine Hundred and Ninety Nine Air Balle Flights Landed Safely At Halvorsen Field This Year."

Which one is going to sell more newspapers?

People, being rubbernecks, don't care about when things go good, they want to see things go bad. Hence the popular TV shows where people get hurt doing dumb stunts.

The bad will always overshadow the good, it always has and always will when it comes to grand and large scale occurrences, not to mention they are just reported more easily now in this modern age which makes them seem like a bigger deal than they once were, it's just a part of life. The media will report on these things because they are far more interesting than the nice everyday occurrences and little things people do to help their fellow man and community.

You should stop reading Revelations. After reading all the stuff that is in store for us, you can't help but feel doom is in the air.
