It’s a challenge to navigate the current climate and retain a sense of optimism. The constant barrage of news, information, gossip, and drama has created an era of hyper-stimulation, fraught with chaos.
After a while, life in the Age of Crazy can just be downright exhausting. If you’ve reached the end of your rope and just want to curl into a ball and ignore the entire human race, you’re not alone. We can only take so much anxiety before it just becomes white noise against our senses.
Right now, don’t try to move forward or push through this wall. You don’t have to give up, but you would certainly benefit from stopping for a moment. Pull back from the world if you must, but do so in a thoughtful manner. Instead of clicking headlines, ask questions. Instead of angsting over the latest tragedy, look at the big picture.
When the world tries to suck you into its drama, sometimes the best defense is to be distant, but alert. This, too, shall pass. Keep your calm, keep your distance, and most of all, keep your eyes and ears open.
