CW: Becoming jaded, feeling empty 

Being exposed to the news all this time is making me become misanthropic and jaded and empty inside, and I hate that I am becoming the person to say "One more? Anyways..." to a US shooting or "Once again? Anyways..." to a corruption scandal in Brazil.

Had to vent it out.

Plus, seeing 22% of Brazil still supporting Bolsonaro's way of doing politics is heart nuking.

@lains I think that's what the news are for. Shock people into numbness and docility.

The modern media machine is that; what happened with informing people of what they can't see or be present for, instead of ramming violence onto our minds? :(

@lains @neauoire

i know this feeling; it's awful.

my advice would be: stop reading the news.

you will feel much better and have more energy to engage meaningfully in your local community. find out what is happening around you and if there are ways you can contribute.
