I’ve been there Wil Wheaton (depression) & you need you. Yes, you need you. The decision to place my own worth up near significant things in my life and the World at large, along with letting minor travesties propagate without my futile attention helped me one hell of a lot.
As to Trump and the political insanity, you’re doing it right. Calling out the language used as the tool of distraction that it is and going past it to what they are actually doing. It takes Sage like focus to maintain contact with reality now, thus, I think that us introverts and ‘over thinkers’ have a significant advantage.
