I'm feeling hopeless 😩

The Barr situation.

Trump telling his minions to vote for weakest candidate.

The Dems being divided.

The Russian Bernie Bots in full swing.

Suckerberg allowing fake content on FB.

The Dump attacking his enemies and using the DOJ to do it!

I am feeling so sad this morning! Our country is ruined.

1. I feel pretty much the same but

this will end. I don't know when, but it will end.

2. When you feel saddened it's best to turn off th news

give it a break. The news will still be there when you get back. You can't control the news, don't let the news control you.Do something inspiring. Do something fun. Do something to make yourself feel better.
I've been getting a lot of inspiration from this lately: The Four Agreements

3. Take time to think of others and maybe get a pet. No, I'm not facetious. This is how I'm coping.

It is a dark time right now and easy to give into fear of the future. We simply CAN NOT.

4. I swing between feeling hopeless and

feeling really, really angry.

Take a break. Do something that will get your mind off of all of this.

Then, come back, ready to fight for our nation.

But, I feel sad nearly all the time too.

It seems both inevitable and impossible that he will be gone and the cognitive dissonance is hard.

5. The mask is removed.

This is what American Conservatism is really like. There's no more need for subterfuge.

6. Every form of evil ends, usually due to its own built-in failings.

The Nazis tried to carry on after Adolf Hitler died. They lasted about three weeks. Hitler was the gravitational mass around which the whole nasty shebag revolved. With him gone...

9. Despair makes them happy

Fuel to their fire, pay attention to our Dems, elected, candidates , volunteers. So many good people working very hard to do all they can, and I strongly believe some of it will work to take down this evil orange cabal.
And do anything you can to be part of the efforts, it really is a very positive feeling. It's also fine to step back, shut off news sources, and go for a walk, pet your dog or cat, talk to a friend

12. Thank you for the heart and the words of encouragement

I am a fighter. I will continue to fight. I bring 10 people to the polls at every election. Thatís not gonna stop. I also deliver ballots. That isnít gonna stop. I also call everyone I know whose kid turned 18 and send them links to have them register to vote. That isnít gonna stop.

But the sadness at what is happening to our country, that WILL eventually stop! Once we WIN!

13. Nope

You honestly think that this shitstain can destroy this country? He's not that powerful. He can drag it through the mud and toss it off a cliff, but he can't ruin it.

We're bigger than that.

If you want to give up, that's your choice. I've seen too much heartache and failure in life to think it's permanent. We'll have a lot of clean up to do, but we've been there before and we will be there again.

15. Take a break but

comeback determined to fight this all the way. There have been a number of heros that have stood up to Trump and life for them is hell. They need the support of the country to know they did the right thing and not to give up on the country and them. Trump wants people worn down, do not give him that, stand up do everything you can to help the resistance and the election. Show those who have had this monster ruin their lives that it is not in vain and we are behind them.

19. It's understandable, but things are truly better than that.

We're actually hearing about these things- that means our country's immune system is still kicking. We're going to beat this.

21. Isn't it strange how some people can be

Kind and encouraging and yet others are just waiting to kick someone when they are down?

Now I know who to block.

23. Activism is the the best remedy.

Get involved in a campaign. Fight the good fight. You'll feel yourself inspired and energized in a group of fellow activists and campaign workers.
