My "left-wing raincloud"
Sometimes I get so fed-up and depressed about all the scandals, corruption, and lies. It seems like every day it's some new injustice, some new outrage. It's the ruthlessness and greed I see everywhere. The obscene worship of war and money and ignorance.

Sometimes I get really down and hopeless about it all. It's like I have a "raincloud" over my head. Sometimes I am angry and frustrated. I know I'm becoming a real downer to be around. I hate to watch any TV or movies, because the people and messages I see represent what I think is wrong in the world. I'm becoming increasingly resentful and suspicious of authority figures. I'm also becoming more intolerant and disgusted with those who don't pay any attention at all to what is going on.

Am I becoming radicalized? Maybe, but I really think I'm right in my judgments. This world isn't living up to my expectations. :)

How do all of you deal with it? Do you feel it too? What can I do to not let it get me down?
