Is anyone else struggling to balance staying informed with staying sane?
Okay, not that I think the news can literally drive someone insane per se. But if it ever could, it could now.
Ever since the election coverage started in 2015, my partner has been a network news junkie and he’s not getting better since Trump’s victory. Sometimes I have to beg him to turn it off because I just can’t take it anymore or my eyes will roll out of my head. He just says “I like to watch the shit show.”
Obviously, I’m using hyperbole to demonstrate my point. But has anyone ever sacrificed being informed for being happy? I’m starting to wonder if ignorance might really be bliss.
