Depressed

DSC_2356_optimized (4)

Being honest with myself, what’s been happening in the UK has really upset and depressed me. The government has just become strongly right wing Conservative after a general election. People seemed to use it as another Brexit referendum (a vote for the UK to leave the European Union). The world keeps turning, but my country seems to be turning inward on itself. Promises were made but are already apparently being broken, where promises to support workers rights have been withdrawn.

So my depression is not internal but has external causes. If I wasn’t to bothered about what happens to people perhaps I could be blasé about it and just feel happy to celebrate the season. But I can’t help worrying about what’s going to happen in the future. I hope this mood lifts soon.

  1. I am so very sorry, I think I feel at least some of what you are going through with the US and Trump and all that. The divide here between left and right is nasty and becoming downright scary at times.

  2. As you read my post-Impeachment post, you know how I feel about that same thing here. I don’t know what anything means any more. BUT I did decide that being depressed about it (which I was and may still be) wasn’t helping anything. I can’t change it. I can live through it (by the grace of god) and I can enjoy what’s in my immediate life. This change to populism which seems worldwide isn’t smart, IMO. I really do not get it.
