There is an abundance of things to be stressed about, enraged about, feel hard done by.... and I'm not just talking about our current government.
Sometimes it seems like the whole world is on the brink of collapse. And maybe it is.
I think its great to join together with others and join protests, take action against injustice, offer support, etc. But, as well, on a personal level, you want to avoid getting over burdened by fretting about events that you can not change and that are beyond the scope of your sphere of influence. There is just too much bad stuff going on at the moment that to take it all on mentally is just going to bring you down.
So, what to do?
Seek the silly.
Favour the fun.
Follow the path to the pun.
Grow your own mirth.
Funny accents whenever possible.
Jigs, slapstick, loud farts.
There's a lot you can do. The list goes on. I am not advocating ignoring reality, I am suggesting that you augment it with a fair share of lighthearted enjoyment. As often as you possibly can.
For in the end, whether the world eventually balances out and becomes the utopia it could be, the natural, just and egalitarian kingdom we all want it to be, or whether it all explodes in a flaming ball of human greed and foolishness, you may as well have a snicker or two along the way. Like a school day. It's mostly a bunch of useless bullshit being heaped upon you; play truant sometimes, have fun with your friends, cause some disruption. Cause just like when you make it through school and realise that it was all just a construct of control and oppression... well, so is modern day life in our society. So give it the finger, ignore the bla bla bla, zone out, dream your own dreams, slip out the back door and go find some sunshine and freedom to bask in.
Like Ghandi once said, "Fucking hell! What's the point in endless suffering?!"
And soon after, decided to never wear a business suit instead and wrapped himself in his bed sheet. Good man.
