I am looking for ways to cope and I know the best is to limit how much attention and energy I give to this daily. Definitely overdosed on cable news earlier this week.
Another thing I noticed is that my core beleifs and tendencies (i.e., to send positive energy out, to be forgiving, and to want to heal) is being supplanted by those around me (e.g., I would rather blame the right-wing, I would rather dabble in conspiracy theories of the false flag nature, and be on extra-high alert with a critical eye to all I am hearing causing me great disbelief).
In a way we can beleive to be total individuals and whatever choice we make was truly ours but society and context have greater input than some realize.
Then there is this, any theory or narrative I will invest in leads me back to the understanding that they are more based on my own preformed perjudices and views. That is looking into a mirror and not getting anywhere near the truth.
What are some techniques and suggestions others have found or can offer to better cope with these events and more importantly the reporting and discussion of these events in the aftermath which might be more behind the problem than the original events themselves?
