17. It's a lot to process and sort through

I think the biggest obstacle to acceptance, at least for me, is the lack of closure regarding what really happened. It's not clear whether he truly won or if key counties were stolen. Even if he did win, it wasn't a clean win. There was massive voter suppression.

Then there's the unfairness of how the media, FBI, etc. behaved during the campaign. Hillary worked her ass off while that arrogant, lazy fuck got to waltz in to the White House with zero effort.

Then there's the people who actually voted for Trump. It's hard to wrap my mind around how people can be so stupid. It seems like getting through to them is a lost cause.

And now that he's inaugurated, we see that Trump's admin is all that we feared and worse. We're not safe from terrorism nor from having our basic civil rights violated. It truly is a clusterfuck, and we're not even 2 weeks in.

Anyway, good luck. As others have said, you might have to tune all of this out for a while and focus on the things you enjoy.
