The News

Shut your eyes but it won’t go away

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.
