A brief history
I’ve never been one for keeping up to date with current affairs, the only thing that’s ever mattered to me is what’s happening in my little world, I was only interested if something affected my friends, my family or myself. Maybe that’s why I never used to question the mainstream narrative, it didn’t impact my life, so I had no reason to look further than headlines and maybe read the first paragraph in order to get the gist of what’s happening elsewhere in the world.
In 2018, that all changed. The catalyst for the change in my opinions and lack of trust in the MSM is a story for another day but if you’re reading this then I’m sure you’ve had a similar “awakening” moment and can relate. The following few years have been somewhat crazy to say the least, and the more I researched the “news”, the more aligned I found myself with so called “conspiracy theorists”.
If you’ve found yourself in the same position, you’re not sure which way to turn and feel like nobody else understands you, please read on. I hope this short article might go some way to helping you on your journey to a better and brighter life.
(Spoiler alert) Goverments LIE
Whatever the current mainstream narrative, you can guarantee it’ll be a campaign designed to divide communities and install a state of fear. Governments around the world have shown themselves to be incapable or unwilling to serve in our best interests and it’s time put aside any differences, we need to stand together as one and rebuild our communities.
“Governments constantly choose between telling lies and fighting wars, with the end result always being the same. One will always lead to the other.”Thomas Jefferson
You’re not alone
There’s millions of people out there like you, good hearted people who look out for one-another and just want to enjoy life, but it’s up to you to find them. You might say “well that’s easier said than done”, don’t worry this site is here to help with that…
The best thing you can do today for mental wellbeing is to stop interacting with the mainstream media, when the news airs on the TV or radio, turn it over or better still, turn it off. Stop reading the newspapers and give some alternative options a go, just try it for a week and you’ll immediately see a huge improvement in your wellbeing.
Equally as important as ditching the MSM, is joining your local community interest groups. Stand in the Park is a great way to spend a Sunday morning/afternoon with likeminded souls, thousands of people meet at their local park every weekend, it’s great to meet up and make new friends. There’s no commitment required, it won’t cost you a penny – simply find your local one and then meet up for chats, coffee, beer, cake, a dance to some music or whatever floats your boat, anything goes! 🙂
Another great way to get involved and find groups with similar interests/beliefs is to install the telegram app on your phone. It’s also a brilliant tool for finding alternative news sources and discussing topics the MSM refuse to report on. If you’re not already using it, that should be the next thing you do today! Finding people living local to you who have similar beliefs and experiences to yourself can be so uplifting, it really is a weight off your shoulders to know you’re not alone in this crazy world.
Knowledge is power
As a strong believer in free speech and critical thinking, I’ve found telegram to be a huge help in finding alternative news channels. Although alternatives are available, telegram (so far) have treated users very fairly and it’s extremely rare to see any kind of censorship, this platform offers an outlet for experts to be heard, experts who’s viewpoint may differ from the mainstream narrative.
The knowledge gained through platforms like telegram can be excellent and completely life-changing, however it can easily lead you to some very dark places. I can only speak from my own personal experience, but I found the tough few weeks where you find yourself making your way through a very dark journey to be completely worth it when you reach the beautiful light and positivity on the other side. The great people you meet along the way, your new understanding of the world, and the way you’re better equipped to deal with challenging circumstances, it really does feel like you’ve been re-born and given a completely new outlook on life.
Beware of the black pill
At some point in your journey, you might find yourself in a “black pilled” state where you can see no light at the end of the tunnel. With the amount of rabbit holes you can find yourself going down, this is probably invevitable, but I’ll share some tips which have helped me come through through the other side as a much more confident and happy soul…
- Limit your screen time, it’s easy to fall into the trap of spending hours of your day looking at your phone/laptop screen. We all want to be abreast of the latest news and updates but does it really make any difference whether you find this information out at 9am, 9pm or even a day or two later? Restrict yourself to a manageable amount of time spent on telegram so it doesn’t interfere with your regular offline activities/interactions.
- Less is more. It’s easy to follow a link and soon finding yourself joining yet another new group, don’t worry we’ve all done it and we’ll no doubt continue to do it for years to come! You’ll soon find certain groups just regurgitate news from other channels you already follow, or that the channel no longer interests you. Every few weeks be ruthless and have a purge, just leave the groups/channels which just aren’t doing it for you any more. There’s no point reading the same news over and over again, you’re never going to get that time back. Use your time wisely.
- Don’t waste your time trying to read everything in one sitting. If you come across an article, video or audio clip that looks interesting but you don’t have the time to look at it right now, simply forward the message to your saved messages channel. By using this channel, you can easily go back as and when you have the time and revisit those important looking articles.
