Is the constant barrage of political carnage ever going to end? It’s so much that I am beginning to feel immune to it. I hate feeling this way, but there doesn’t seem to be a light at the end of the tunnel. Is this just the way it’s going to be? If so, I am officially depressed.
It’s The End Of The World As We Know It
My darling, I understand exactly how you feel. Even if you want some reprieve from the situation entirely there is hardly anywhere to hide. I am having a nice rosé, because this weather has been so glorious down this way. Join me? There always has to be a bright side somewhere.
I can’t remember, at least in my lifetime, when there has been such a massive divide in humanity. I have friends who refused to attend Super Bowl parties last weekend because of the hosts’ political affiliation. How sad is that? A sporting event can’t even be a political free asylum. What in the world is going on? The rosé continues to go down easy now.
I have turned off the news, unfollowed what seems like thousands of friends on Facebook, refused to engage in pointless banter, and isolated myself to the point of total sensory deprivation. And you know what? Life goes on. What a relief. I am not saying you need to be uninformed about important things going on in the world, but for god’s sake, it’s good for you to take a break from the constant onslaught. I found myself in a very bad mood and not sleeping until I turned it all off.
Give yourself some time. It seems that what’s going on “out there” is like a bad soap opera. The glorious thing about soaps is that you can turn them off for a good amount of time and when you go back to watch, they pick up practically right where they left off. Full of drama. Make sense?
Let’s enjoy this rosé, and the beautiful life we are meant to be living…. not simply tolerating.
