Does anyone else struggle with feelings of despair? The older I get, the more my heart is broken by the human race in general. I'm worn down by the pervasiveness of religious superstition, science denial, political division, racism, subjugation of the masses, and the continuing - seemingly unstoppable - worldwide rise of oligarchy and nationalism.
I focus my energy on other things as much as I can. I've given up on attempting to sway anyone's opinions about anything. People have stopped listening.
It's got me down today. I'm feeling a little isolated.
