I seriously can’t take this election ONE. MORE. SECOND. I am blocking lifetime friends on Facebook because they’re online terrorists when it comes to politics. It’s like everyone has lost their minds! No one is reasonable and no one listens to each other at all. I am losing friends left and right if I disagree with any one of their points. I give. I am ready to move to Costa Rica and chuck it all.
They ALL Suck
Oh Lord! Don’t I know! I completely agree with you. This election? It has been the straw that broke the camel’s back, when I said I’d “cut down” on my drinking wine. Nope! Not happening. Let’s get this overwith, people, before I gain 20 lbs!
Deep breath. Ok. Join me in a carb-free vodka water. It doesn’t require you to use your brain cells to drink it. Just like this election doesn’t require you to use your brain cells to know they’re all full of crap, be it voters or votees.
For whatever reason, this election has brought out the lowest common denominator of behavior tactics that I have ever seen in my life. Perhaps it’s just a sign of the times. Perhaps people are just so frustrated and are like toddlers who can’t speak well and just flail their arms. Or perhaps my dear mother was right, the end of the world is drawing nigh and we shall all perish shortly. Maybe that’s the best idea. *gulp gulp gulp!*
Here’s a solution: I have made a pact with a few other friends. We don’t bring it up. We don’t talk about it. And we don’t feed into it. It’s not going to get better before it gets worse, and, frankly, I don’t think anything that happens from now until election day is going to change my mind anyway.
For your sake, you’ve got the right idea already. Click that convenient little “unfollow” button for those people on the other side, and disengage from this convo. You don’t even have to “de-friend” them! Sounds so silly even saying that, but for your sanity, I would immediately stop getting involved or even having it in your feed. Let’s be empathetic and say it’s a case of temporary insanity at the moment. If someone tries to reel you in, JUST SAY NO, and walk away. Easy-peasy! You’ll be doing yourself a myriad of favors. The biggest of which is that your blood pressure will go down significantly and you will be calmer and more focused on important tasks at hand….like finishing this vodka!
I wish you luck! Stay strong!
