Let’s just get straight to it.
If your mood, outlook on life, level of fear, or plans for your future, are way dependent on what Donald Trump does, or does not do, then Donald Trump has won. He owns your psyche.
Actually, though, I would say the same about Obama, Mercury Retrograde, that goof-ass president of North Korea, Monsanto, the fracking industry, the New England Patriots. your Mom, Sister Mary Redempta, the weather, or the Dow Jones.
If you are allowing what THEY do to impact, or especially DICTATE, your own mental or emotional wellness, then you are kind of screwed. Actually, not “kind of”. You are screwed.
You (we) must refuse to give away that kind of power to anything, anyone, no matter what. I am seeing it all over Facebook, all over other Social Media, all over the faces and Facebook posts of people I like, or love, and admire—they are giving it away, bad…They are saying “As long as THAT ONE is doing what they do, I cannot be happy!” And often the message is “And you shouldn’t be either!”
I am not saying you have to like whatever is going on in the world, but as soon as you say (usually indirectly, unwittingly) “Because of THAT one, I am not, and CANNOT be happy!” then that one is the CEO of Your Life.
You gave them the keys, wrote them the check, signed it over, booted responsibility, threw in the towel,and mailed it in.
I would really, really recommend against that…..Seriously.
