Media vs. Real Life

Wanting to live like those you see in happy movies, surround yourself with nice people and happy images, pretend the world is okay because you are.  However, the world has a way of making its true presence known no matter how hard we work to create peace around us.  The world is ‘good’, ‘bad’ and everything in between.

It is naive to only think of the good but it is also pessimistic to only think of the bad, not to mention draining.
