I feel drained and exhausted from all the political tension. The stakes are high, and it is very polarized. The people are angry and or scared (I know I am), and it will probably get much worse the closer we get to Election day. I am not sure if it’s the older (and hopefully wiser) I get, these things affect my mental health in ways that it never did before. I feel like times like these bring the worse in humanity. Social media, misinformation, the pandemic, among many other issues, it’s a lot, it is a lot to deal with mentally. Not only do I want all this to get past us, but I also fear for what is coming.
