Repost: How to #StayOutraged Without Losing Your Mind

This is one of the greatest posts I’ve read on the subject of how we can make it through the coming times. It’s by Mirah Curzer, and I agree with almost everything in it.

Read the whole thing, because it contains wise and practical words like this:

“If you try to maintain this fever pitch of anguish and fear and outrage, something far worse than a little down time is going to happen. Your brain, to protect you, will just turn down the volume on the outrage and adapt.”

(If after you read it you want to know my one reservation, you have but to ask.)

    Thanks for this – great advice. And yes – please say what your reservation is. Mine was about the therapy thing. And one thing I’d add is find and use good sources of news, and identify the bad ones.

    Susan — Mine was the therapy, too! I’m a great believer in therapy if that’s what you need, but here she seems to be suggesting pre-emptive therapy, which I find weird.
