Is it just me, or are we all paranoid? I hear constantly about everything that's going wrong in our lives and the world, from the government, stalkers, heartless corporations, and foreign countries that want to kill us. There's so much chaos in the world, and it seems so hard to keep it all together.
Online privacy seems to be one of the big things here. We're always freaking out over what people can find out about us online. And I will admit it's scary. But remember way back when they were still making telephone books? You could find someone's address and phone number that way. And we're convinced everyone we meet face to face or online is a stalker/identity thief/rapist/serial killer. Yeah, we've got some really messed up people out there, but why does that mean we should fear everyone?
And germs. This one makes some sense, but at some point, you have to realize there's nothing you can do to completely protect yourself. If you disinfect everything too much, your body doesn't build up the necessary immunity. On the other hand, if you don't clean stuff enough, it increases the odds of you getting sick. There is no escape. Even without germs, everything will supposedly make us sick. Staying inside, going outside, eating certain foods, not exercising, do the wrong exercise, and on and on.
Will it ever end?
