It can be so overwhelming at times to just live. All the news stories of violence, injustice, corruption, neglect of the people, it could drive you crazy if you try to focus on it all at once, or even focus on it at all. All the issues seem so big that you can't begin to think of where to start to make a difference. Not to mention, outside of all the world's problems, an unstable economy, corrupt politicians, and injustices, there is your life, your every day problems. Your family member in the hospital recovering, your bills that can sometimes barely be paid, strife in your personal relationships. It's enough to make a person want to go crazy to figure out what to do.

So, what do you do?

I don't know. Probably the easiest and most manageable thing to do is start with yourself. Help yourself. Try to solve your problems. Then branch out to the people you can immediately touch, the people you can immediately make a difference for. Whether it be supporting a venture they have going, or just giving them an ear to listen and a shoulder to lean on.

Start small. You can't solve the world's problems, but you can help those around you and yourself live a happier life.


  1. Agreed...sometimes it is horribly overwhelming to know what is going on in every corner of the world...ignorance might truly be bliss, yes?

  2. @allenaim - ignorance is bliss, unfortunately. Thanks for commenting :-)
