This election is going to be weird.
While I'm not at all closely following Canadian politics, I'm pretty sure this post could have been written 72 hours or even 72 days in advance and have been accurate no matter what.I have deep concerns about the current election results. I don't trust the new guy. Or his party.
I'd feel the same way about this whether I read about it live or later. It doesn't matter.Nick, I think doomscrolling is bad for you. I mean, it's bad for ALL of us to some extent, but I think you are more susceptible than most. You have too much empathy for the internet news.
I was discussing this recently with my therapist. With no social hobbies outside anymore (I didn't really have much even before Corona, but now absolutely 0), all of my news and social interaction except for colleagues and close family is scrolling Facebook, news sites, Twitter, etc. It's really toxic. I like being up to date and aware of everything and being well-informed, but these days the combination of click bait titles, duality of politics, half the world seemingly trolling constantly, half the world constantly trying to make their life appear perfect and pretending to be flawless magazine model families, etc has turned this into a serious source of anxiety and depression-fuel.Nick, I think doomscrolling is bad for you. I mean, it's bad for ALL of us to some extent, but I think you are more susceptible than most. You have too much empathy for the internet news.
I think most polls show a minority for the liberals, which is realistically the best case scenario (in my opinion). It also shows how much of a waste of time, money and my limited ability to handle new stresses all this fucking nonsense was.I'm trying to decide which is worse between a Trudeau majority and a Conservative minority. Either way nothing positive is likely to happen between now and the next election, whenever that ends up being.
