I wonder if those of you who live outside of North America are equally exhausted by it all or if you have a break from the rhetoric with your distance...
I can't engage. That doesn't mean I don't read or pay attention, it just means for my own sanity, I have to stay somewhat disengaged by it all. Because there is so much. And it is so... not good. I know the news has its bias and incites certain feelings to bring the reader/viewership in but I am so exhausted by the back and forth and the dual sided hate and anger.
I sometimes wonder if it's because I joined Facebook recently (within the last.... four? years) and have a number of Americans in my feed... maybe it's always been like this and I just never saw it?
But it seems from those I speak to that it's not always been like this.
And no, I don't want to have a political discussion. I do not want to talk about what's going on, or not going on or any of it. I just want some peace. And I don't see that happening any time soon.
But man oh man I am tired of other peoples' drama.
