Discussion Thread: How Are You?

I'm feeling pretty despondent at the moment. One of the things that is getting to me this week in particular is that the Trump administration, and the Republican Party as a whole, is so thoroughly determined to destroy everything I value it feels like there is not even the space or reason to expect more.

Never have I been faced with national leadership so supremely hostile to even the most basic decency. I am trying to focus on resistance, and all the people who are, like me, still determined to do valuable and positive things no matter how grim the backdrop, but goddamn is this a serious challenge to my optimism.

I'm far too tenacious to throw in the towel. But I am feeling very tired.

Outside of politics, I'm pretty good. Looking forward to some friends visiting this weekend.

How are you?
