Ditch the negative for the positive

-A A +A
By The Staff

There has been a lot of negative information in the news lately about celebrities and businesses. Irrelevant of whether the person or business is guilty or innocent or whether you care about the topic or not, as a society we need to stop having so much negativity.

The truth is that generally happy, healthy people don’t commit crimes. I’m mainly concerned about this because constant negative attention can drive anyone to the dark side.

If we look at anyone under the microscope, we could make them out to be the devil. The level of scrutiny we thrust upon high profile people is ridiculous.

Think about it, as a nation, we criticize people for what they wear, when they gain some weight, who they date, where they take a job, or if they don’t do a good job to our standards, we hate that, too.

Imagine if every day your life was under such scrutiny? What if you were criticized at work for what you wore, what level of work you accomplished that day and who your friends were that week?

I think of the constant scrutiny of everyone in a public office, anyone involved in a project that has gone bad and anyone who did the right thing in the face of upsetting everyone.
