A few weeks ago, following the elections and Trump’s proclamation that he was running again, I declared that I would avoid posts that described anything Trumpian. I even requested that people refrain from bringing him up in my posts, and for the most part, people have been obliging.
I don’t hate Trump, but I don’t like him. And I am tired of having to explain and justify my positions regarding him. I felt like people were centering their worlds around him—conversations, opinions, declarations—and I wanted no part of it.
I realize that this post breaks my vow. But I wanted to share some of my reactions to my decision.
First, I feel so relieved and much more at peace. I’ve stopped pulling out my hair (kidding) and I feel free to focus on other issues of the day: the other crazy political situations, the cultural issues of the Woke agenda, situations in Florida, and just (what I hope are) thought-provoking posts that provide food for thought.
Maybe my posts aren’t as dramatic or passionate or even hysterical as some. Maybe they aren’t clickbait that are so intriguing and fun to read.
But they are honest and, I hope, thoughtful.
And my DT Diet has greatly reduced my angst and frustration. It is low-calorie and definitely good for your health. Will I be able to maintain it over time? I’ve already been tempted by some rich and filling posts, so it’s hard to say. We’ll have to see how much willpower I have.
