Feeling so negative today about...

the world in general. I almost wish I did not bring my children into this scary, selfish, dangerous world. People just don't seem to care about one another anymore. Kids are mean to eachother, adults are quick to judge every little thing, it is getting harder and harder to make ends meet and I just don't see the positives in life in general right now. With the holidays approaching, the selfishness and rudeness are glaringly obvious and it makes me want to take my kids and move someplace really isolated so I can get away from the terrible people and the terrible things that are happening everywhere. 

I feel like I am fighting a losing battle trying to bring my kids up to be caring and kind, helpful and respectful when everyone around them in school is rude and selfish, and my own family is contstantly trying to feed into materialism by buying them stuff they just don't need and for no reason. 

I am alone in thinking that the world has just become a horrible place? Where are the nice people who offer a helping hand when someone needs it? Where are the people who offer a kind word or a smile? Where are the people who thank someone who is kind to them instead of acting like they are entitled to things?

I am just so discouraged....

My advice, is to worry about your family. Stop caring what others do or don't do.

You might be focusing on just the negative and that's all you see. Try to find at least one positive thing a day and return the feeling to a stranger. It might hange the outlook.

Look at the way people are helping each other in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. There is still good in this world. It's easy to oversimplify and think the world is going down the toilet, I do that sometimes too. Like another person said, look for the positive things in your daily life and focus on those. Doing nice things for others helps too. You have to be the change you want to see in the world; I live my life by that principle.
