Very thoughtful Comic Strip This Morning

Just read this, so right on point in my opinion:

Eh. My household found it a tad whiny.

No, it’s not on point. Here we find things much worse.

It's pessimistic and defeatist. It's a narrow view of society.

Keeping hope alive at our house. The statement reflects many attitudes but is defeatist. I don't believe we should view the world with rose-colored glasses, but staying open minded and making efforts to improve each year sounds promising.

Well that certainly is depressing.

Even if circumstances around me are awful in terms of local and world news, 

I try to make the immediate world I live in the best and most postive, helpful, and encouraging I can, for myself and those I come in contact with.

Even more so because of all the incredibly sad things in our world today.

And when tragedy strikes our own lives, I hope we have the love and support of our family and or friends.

I just couldn't live feeling the way this person feels every day.

I like many of you try to stay positive, but realistically some thins get bettter, some worse, it's kind of a wash.

This person requires an attitude adjustment.  Perhaps if he did more for others and less for himself he'd enjoy life more.  Random acts of kindness come to mind.

People don't hate without a reason and those who promote entitlement provide reason for some. When did we stop believing in self reliance? It's easy to dismiss another's attitude as just wrong, harder to to look at situations from their perspective.

Humans are flawed, and therefore the world is flawed, but that doesn't mean there isn't plenty to be happy about as well as sad.  I agree that defeatist thinking is not productive.  Hope the person who wrote that can develop a better, more hopeful and balanced perspective.
