How to Stay Sane if Trump is Driving You Insane: Advice From a Therapist

https://cdn-images-1.medium.com/max/800/1*5P9e7TwcgdoGgAAmPLWqEQ.png

  • We are traveling a long road toward change. At times, the pain will be so intense that these skills may not serve us fully. In those moments, allow yourself breaks. Care for yourself. If you find you are struggling to function normally, you may be experiencing more serious depression, anxiety, or trauma symptoms. Reaching out to a professional can help. When I need strength, I re-read the note from the Islamic Society: “Many thanks for your support, encouragement, and efforts done to assist our community during this difficult time.” I remember the humility and kindness in that room. No one, not even Donald Trump, can take that away.

Apr 26, 2017 | “I feel like I’ve lost faith in humanity, in our country, in myself,” a client told me recently. “Is this depression, or is this the election?”

“Good question,” I replied. The truth is, individual psychology is hugely influenced by political realities. Many of us feel insane right now because our world is not sane. Current events are very much at odds with our natural optimism, and our belief in human goodness and progress.

Feb 7, 2017 | The number of people employed by the solar power industry in the U.S. surged 25 percent last year, to 260,000 workers, according to a count by the Solar Foundation, a pro-industry group. Twenty-five percent is huge. For comparison, the rest of the economy added jobs at a rate of 1.45 percent.

This stratospheric trend will probably start to level off this year: The Solar Foundation predicts the industry will add another 25,000 jobs in 2017. That’s about a 10 percent growth rate — a lot less than 25 percent, but still freaking impressive.

http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/evergreenedigest.org/files/Transportation%20Forward%20logo.jpgMay 5, 2017 | Imagine bus routes cut, fares going up to 50 cents and waiting longer for the bus or train. That’s what could happen if the Legislature doesn’t fund Metro Transit. The state Legislature has proposed deep cuts to Metro Transit bus and light rail funding. If these cuts pass it will have a devastating impact on our community. It will mean fare increases, routes will be cut and or run less often, shorter hours and routes could be cut altogether.

This would really hurt the elderly, low income folks, Minneapolis Public High School students who depend on the bus to get to and from school and people who depend on the bus or light rail to get to work.

But you can do something about it.

Come Rally with us Tuesday May 16 at 6 pm at the state Capitol (we will meet near the Capitol/Rice street stop on the Light Rail Green Line)

For more info 651-403-0338 or 651-201-3400

Please put up the attached poster (PDF) in your church.

Thanks
