I have a friend who during this virus thingy ( I think that should be the official name used in history books ) always takes the worst outlook. Whatever is the worst outcome becomes certain. If there’s a bad outlier in data that becomes the new most common outcome. For example, say someone in their twenties dies from it that then means everybody in their twenties who gets it is going to die. He also seems to read a lot of facebook and believes everything bad he sees on there. He’s told me things like, “Studies have shown blah blah blah.” Then I go and check and it isn’t true.
I try and do the exact opposite. I look for positive news and view numbers etc, in the most positive light. I look for hope wherever I can find it and try to stay hopeful. I don’t know how I would handle it. I am already starting to Howard Hughes it up over here.
