The experiences you live with others have a “programmatic” effect that stays recorded within you and affect your own actions and thinking in a good or bad way.
If you associate with people that are generally negative as described previously, then you will most likely develop yourself with beliefs that are in a negative harmony with the “energy” you surround yourself with.
So pay attention to who you surround and interact with regularly, know that you have control over your own actions and can therefore chose to leave, terminate a relationship and simply move on.
It is good to be informed but an over-saturation of negative information whether its true or not, will only bring you to that level and ultimately stress the heck out of you.
Somewhere I heard that you become the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with, so choose well who and how often you are going to spend all this time with.
In contrast, if you surround with people who have a positive demeanor-those who motivate, encourage, and uplift you, you will notice the difference.
Feeling motivated, optimistic, energized is likely to lead to better experiences giving you the drive and courage to look at life in a different perspective.
This new perspective will be one where even in problems and adversity, there is always something to learn to help your new experiences down the road.
Your ability to overcome difficult situations, stay motivated to achieve your goals in life will be affected in a more positive way.
Remember that you alone have the power to choose who you surround yourself with.
