When does “a lot” become too much?

2020 was quite the year. I am almost 30 years old and a year like that never happened. I don’t want to talk about 2020 right now (i have already done that), but there’s something more specific i would like to share with you.

In the last 12 months magazines, newspapers and people have said and written lot of things and, at one point, people have started to get pissed about the fact that the input were just too much. Now, my question is: is it really too much or we are just exhausted?

In this case one could say that the truth is in the middle, but i’m not sure about that this time. Don’t get me wrong, i love free expression of our thoughts and free information for everyone, but the problem is that it’s actually too much. In this 2020 the only news i was able to read was the ones related to the Covid-19. It’s ok to be informed and we must know what happens around us, but this pandemic was THE ONLY TOPIC in the last year.

I know that people in internet have to earn money and the pandemic was the trending topic for months, but my brain can’t actually handle all of that mess right now. Some days i have the feeling that i don’t know what is true and what’s not: one news disprove the other, one people is against the other and communities around internet starts to spread conspiracy theories every week. I live in a situation where i open internet and i don’t know what to believe. And it’s pretty dangerous, because in this moment of uncertainties, it’s too easy to believe in something that is not true at all or start to have very negative thoughs about someone or something.

In the beginning was a lot, now it’s too much. We should stop to read, because the more twe read, the more people are encouraged to write about it, because thier statistics are just very good. The less we read about something, the less people are not so encouraged to write about it. In this way, only people who cares of information will still write about ti, the rest, who write because of money, will stop!

In 2021 we should have a resolution: read only the official sources!

With Love

Mauro.
