I expressed some thoughts on Twitter and you know sure as hell I won’t reply to trolls who have more energy at harsh negativity than me. Trump has won and I am still dealing with the first stage of grief- denial. I stayed in bed most of the day and after I rose today morning, Trump was the first image that invited itself in my mind.
It’s still hasn’t sunk in my mind, I still see him as this entertainment-character.
As always, with our collective human confirmation bias, we will only notice more negativity if it is in the other candidate, myself included (and my own biases will be below). Things will be more ‘intricate’ if they have anything to do with us. People voted for two things this year.
They either voted for the right to live in the same manner as before, like when “America was great”, when there wasn’t much division because people were afraid to express their private rights anyway. When things were a bit more White-Christian-Sharia-ish.
Voting for a candidate who can do who knows what, like Hillary Clinton did (or Obama or Bush….but for now, pretty much Obama), like getting people out of their lands, killing their families (I mean, you HAVE to kill their families too, right?) and, of course, stealing their oil.
If you’re a Trump supporter, you’re most probably focusing more on what Hillary did. If you’re a Hillary supporter, you’re most probably focusing on what Trump, along with the messages he promotes, CAN DO.
But Republicans won, and I am still dealing with the rise of a new dictatorship of the world’s superpower nation. I am going to try to not post anything more on Twitter on what Trump has done or influenced. I wish I could talk on love and acceptance.
Every liberal needs some time to heal. Feeling emotions are better than suppressing them. Try not to act on the grief, anger, etc (like I was doing all this time on Twitter and Facebook) but rather try to let the feelings flow through you (even that can be hard to do); the way out is the way through (with emotions). Take some rest for yourself. You can’t give what you don’t have, I know I sure can’t.
