-Resisting the GOP's broad swaths of damage;
-Feeling isolated and afraid about their damage to democracy;
-Russia's covert propaganda attacks
-Being isolated by COVID
I'm trying to compartmentalize & focus, going to rooms in my mind to be productive. Here's how:

Maybe they're forcing us all to choose to be a little more intentional about how we spend our precious life moments.
I can't fix all of it, but I can do something. Every week. And by doing it this way, I won't lose myself.
That means I'm in this for the long race ahead. If you find ways not to burn out, you will be, too. Resisting together over the long haul is how we win.
This intentionality helps me to put it somewhere, close the door & breathe
