Don't think, just watch. Many people watch too much TV now a days. Many television stations especially news channels are one sided and make you see just from their prospective. If you don't see both sides though, your opinions will become one sided.
Be kind to yourself so true I'm learning to speak positively to myself and wow it so helps. How is it helpful to anyone when you beat yourself up? One of the best things you can do for the ones you love, is to be kind to yourself.
