The present U.S. administration wants you to be overwhelmed. They want you to burn out. They want to swamp you with bad news so that you don’t know where to turn or how to fight back, or whether you have the energy to be effective.
A suggestion: for every piece of bad news you reblog, reblog something about resistance. Reblog something about how people are building something, in direct contrast to those who are trying to tear us down. Reblog something that lifts your spirits and reminds you why we fight.
Do not do their work for them. Consciously choose to reblog light as well as the important news of what the administration is up to.
Please don’t hurt yourself. Please don’t give up. If you are triggered in any way please find something to distract you. Reach out for help. Talk to someone. Take your mind off of the thoughts, at least for a moment.
I care about you. I am here for you. Stay strong.
I am proud of you. You are alive and that is amazing.
