Another ultra-relevant/unfortunately relatable song from Paramore, folks.
All the news seems to do for me is cause my anxiety to skyrocket and, on worse days, send me spiraling.
I keep telling myself that I can handle it, when the reality is it just makes things WORSE. And I’m not actually taking anything in except sheer panic and worry.
I need to back away and take care of myself. But then there’s that little voice that asks me – am I doing a disservice to myself by not being informed? Just remaining ignorant? Things are still going to happen, even if I’m not looking at the news.
But I need to be okay and a functional human being.
So for now, the news is going to have to sit way over there while I try and make sure I’m in one piece. Me comes first. And me is the only one who can take care of me.
Rambling a bit here. But the constant barrage of news can kindly jump in a lake.
