Another thing my schizophrenic mind hates is politics. I will not under any circumstances discuss my opinions about politics with anyone outside of a couple family members and my two best friends. For one, I’m open to the possibility I could be way off. Two, I consciously know I am only one vote among millions so I don’t feel like I am completely in charge of the whole political process. I don’t have delusions of grandeur in that regard. And third, I have nothing but complete loathing and absolute hatred for how continuous and nasty the whole topic has become in recent years even among close friends. And every time I turn on my tv or log onto Facebook, that’s the main thing I see on the news or in my newsfeed. I have unfollowed dozens of friends and family members because I don’t want to hear about politics anymore. I unfollowed people I agree with even. I don’t want to hear about anyone’s politics any more than an atheist wants to hear about your relationship with God. I unfollowed these friends and avoid news channels because I don’t need that level of confirmation bias and headaches. No, I don’t have it all figured out even though I am 35 years old. I missed that memo that said I had to have all my opinions and beliefs for life formed by age 21. I’m open to changing my beliefs. I don’t identify myself with how I voted in the last election. And I am absolutely sickened by how no one wants to compromise on anything and how much everyone fights over the pettiest nonsense. Politics is a religion for far too many people. I am more than my vote. I am more than my opinions. And I will be glad when the mass insanity of the election is over. I have enough stress and tension in my schizophrenic mind. I don’t need to deal with nonsense that I as one person can’t do anything about. I’m convinced that normal people are more insane than I am, at least when it comes to politics.
