If you take a really close look, you will find that it does not help at all. It never helps to beat yourself up. It never helps to be negative about any person, place or situation.
Negativity draws more negativity, like a magnet. Beating yourself up and being negative will only move you further and further from a solution.
Bad news can only get you down if you let it. Only if you are paying attention to it and letting it push you around. Only if you are allowing it to make you feel scared and negative. You decide how much power it has over you.
