It’s so surprising how people will get mad about whatever the media tells them to get mad about for however long they should get mad about it. It makes me wonder if events are staged. This latest issue is going even longer than usual. It’s so strange how getting facts, evidence, and context before hitting the streets or going wild on the keyboard doesn’t seem to cross people’s minds. I used to be like that so really, I should be gentle with people and let them take their “journey”. It’s so hard though. Especially with friends. It’s like people don’t realize they have been cast in a play. They have their lines and they are acting it out. They got the part and don’t even know it. I heard and see them saying and typing exactly the things they have been programmed to say. And it makes me sad. And it makes me mad. So mad. I guess that’s what it is supposed to do to me. It’s supposed to upset and comsume me and make me feel defeated. Well, it’s been working. I’ve been ruminated on one conversation for 4 days now. I’m even thinking about taking a little anti-anxiety pill to help me quit worrying about it. I don’t feel in control. Don’t think about it, I tell myself. See if I’m still upset in a week. Then maybe unfriend them? Is that inmatture? Yes. Do I want my feed to be a happy place with people who think like me? Yes. Has it been a week yet? No. I’ll wait. More self reflection. Am I saying the lines from a script and I don’t even know it? Can’t be, can it? I know I used to. I think that I’ve changed. If I can change, others can change. So… I wait.
