Becoming Overwhelmed by News
I do agree with the notion that no it is not a good thing to be overwhelmed by circumstances. Not a good thing to be overwhelmed by constant bad news. On the one hand one can manifest being overwhelmed by becoming buried under it. Or alternatively, on the other hand, one can manifest being overwhelmed by overcoming it. Shutting yourself out from all news is being buried by circumstances. Letting the news flow past you, and afterwards continuing on to becoming better and even better versions of yourself over time, despite the firehose stream of news, now that is overcoming it.
