On Mental Health and Modernity
The times are tough. It isn’t even easy to just “live” now, unless you enjoy “living” by constantly acquiescing and being obedient-bootlickers to the idiots that rule over you.
Dealing with the stupidity surrounding us isn’t easy. Make sure you’re taking care of yourself, not just physically, but also mentally. The mental side of the equation is equally as important in these times.
I am involved locally with quite a few different organizations and we recently had a great guy lose it and try to kill himself. Unsuccessful, luckily. But he’ll be going through hospitals and psychs for awhile now. The guy is a combat vet, involved locally, (visually) has his stuff together, but has just been tanking since the covid tyranny began. Eventually it must of become too much for him.
This isn’t an unfamiliar story. In many ways, I don’t fault him. After awhile, having to bear the burden of truth wears on you. Especially when constantly surrounded by the liars or the blind. Or worse, where you have to constantly play into the lie. At the point we are now, it has gotten so extreme that if you don’t play along, you may have to lose your livelihood and ability to have a roof over your head (Thanks, Biden mandates). Or the fact that in many places you can’t even buy food to survive without putting some stupid fabric on your face. It’s all a compliance dance, and when you see it for what it is, being forced to comply constantly and repeatedly starts to drive anyone mad. Without ridiculous levels of coping and personal pressure release valves, I’d probably be going just as crazy.
Still, we can’t let that overtake us. It’s exactly what they want. The point here isn’t to wallow in sadness about how rough we have it. Tough times make strong men and all. And you’re called for those times, whether you want to be or not. But this is a notice to make sure you’re keeping check on your mental health in the process of these tough times. There will be no strong men left if they all kill themselves or lose their sanity in the process.
Give yourself some news breaks if needed. A day, a weekend, or even a full week. Clock out from society for a bit. Separate from social media and the phone for awhile. Spend time in nature. Get out of the same cycle, try something different. Reach out to some people you rarely talk too. If you have other people that “get it”, get in touch with them so you have a beacon of light in the darkness. Whatever you do, make sure you do it with integrity and contentment.
There are far too many suicides, violent outbreaks, and “dropouts” occurring worldwide, especially of hopeless Right-leaning men that see no way out. Don’t let yourself get to that point. You’re the only one that can prevent that.
Continue to revolt against modernity, but remember to ride the tiger. Don’t let it ride you.
