Bad News, Feeling Lo: News cycles are designed to tell us the bad news and this can be depressing to those who are sensitive or worried about the state of life. Sometimes news in the media can make us feel like we are close to the end times. This can cause us to lose heart or interest, and impact what gives us purpose and meaning in life, especially if we buy into the horror that can be present in the world.
