The last three years have turned me into a grumpy old man

The way things are going in our country and society just keeps me angry most of the time. I’ve become cynical, jaded, and downright resentful, and I don’t like it.

Unplugging from media and social media would seem to be a solution, but it wasn’t for me. I tried it for a little while, nothing improved. I know that this is common with aging, but not to this degree. Anyone know of a way to cope with all of this without going completely off the grid?

It's like the Summer of Love here compared to the Poli Board.

That’s why I avoid that board as much as possible.

Right there with you

I’m only 29 and I already want to pimp slap the vast majority of people I come across

Have you tried yelling at clouds?

What do you listen to when driving or whenever you have a chance to listen to something?

Do you still consume news even if its not on social media?
Just get away from it if so. Listen to music or.. I like to listen to a few comedian podcast. I just try not to take life too serious.

Me too. It’s been more than three years. It’s been since TDS was clearly seen in MSM, academia, bureaucrats, 3 letter agencies, etc.

Did you really try, though? What was it that you were finding you were getting angry at?

If you really did try this, maybe it is a personal issue. Try exercising, or like the guy above said, going to church.

Won’t have to. Well be wearing the Demorat version of the yellow Star of David. The Demorats have a design contest for it now. It will be unveiled after the midterms, regardless of who wins.

I do both. It helps, but marginally. Why? Because I think about my kids and grandkids futures, and countless Americans who are less fortunate than me and can’t afford to live with runaway inflation, shortages, etc.

Tuning out doesn’t make these problems go away.

Best thing I found is to just focus on your kids and your family and your friends and your life. That’s really all you can control and affect.

Try to do good, or at least not do bad.

Don’t go looking for trouble but if it rears it’s ugly head strike hard and fast

Try to find the silver linings. Waking up is a win.

I prefer edible, but this is a good suggestion.


I just noticed I made a typo and spelled edible wrong.
