I cannot figure out how to change the channel at my place of stay so it is stuck on one particular news program. As I sit here listening to the discourse, I get more and more anxious.
I am going to turn off the TV, but I just want to remember this feeling. I don’t even want to comment. Just remember this feeling. It feels like slowly drowning in words. Hot, sticky, sharp, jagged words... Political Quick Sand.
I turned off the TV. 📺 ...I have shelter / food / people who love me... I feel so fortunate. In order to deal with my current events-induced anxiety it’s essential for me to feel 100% gratitude for Life. When I don’t, it’s a slow suffocation in a sea of coifed news talking heads.
