I didn’t have a TV for several years, but since I’ve been living with my dad (who does have a TV), I’ve been watching the news on a daily basis. I go along with it because he likes to watch TV. Whenever I see reports of bad news (which is often), I usually blank it out of my mind.
I believe that the best thing I can do is be true to myself, which means being and doing my best because of, and sometimes in spite of, a particular situation. Doing my best is something only I can truly know. The key is to be continually honest with myself.
