Guys, I am so so emotionally drained by the news coming out of Canada's Southernly neighbour.

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.

It's much the same from here, even with the Atlantic between us and our own problems to worry about. Sympathies!

From one of your Southernly neighbors: I'm seriously stressed about it too. And I love my country and love living here but also hate all... THIS.

Where does peace and harmony exist? Can I go there?
