I don’t like it but it is what it is

Media trends have been the “hot” topic of my conversations lately.
Whether I was discussing with friends or business associates — the conclusion was the same:
There is a steep increase in negative stories.
(The trend is clearly supported by data.)

The answer is simple.
That’s what sells.
Gets the most views.
The highest readership; the most clicks.

So, what are we to do?
“I don’t like it but it is what it is”, was my answer.
I said it several times over this past week.

And it felt like I was losing something every time I said it.

It seemed like I’ve joined the “negativity movement” that’s been running through the country for a while now.

It’s in our best interest to keep working together.

Answers and solutions
Let’s start talking not AT but WITH each other.

Not one group/party has all the answers.
We need to focus and work together to find solutions.

It’s the only way we can solve the complex problems we are facing.

is their impatience with negative thinking.”
