The Stress of Politics

In our daily lives, we face many stresses, and the kinds that we face are different for each individual. But there is one thing that seems to affect everyone – and that is politics. Even if you’re not a big fan of the news or what goes on between politicians, you can still be affected by major choices and decisions being made by the people that are in power – and that can cause a lot of anxiety.


We all know that there has been a lot of shady things happening within the White House. President Trump has been accused of doing all kinds of illegal things, and it has caused a lot of turmoil. Whether you are a fan of President Trump or not, knowing that the possibility of our president being impeached is on the table can take a real toll on our mental health. Losing a president this way could be devastating and cause quick changes that the general population might not be prepared for.


At the heart of the drama, we have Mueller leading an investigation on Trump for potentially having allowed Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Many believe that Mueller should have an in-person interview with Trump to really get to the bottom of everything. If he were to do this, they could get real and direct answers, and might even be able to differentiate truth from lie, versus looking everywhere else for the possibility of finding a piece of the answer.


On the other side of it, Trump disagrees that an in-person conversation is the way to go with all of this, and he says that the Witch Hunt needs to end. President Trump has had a pretty high disapproval rate, and this could be another way for people to attack him. It’ll keep him on his toes and turn even more people against him regardless of the outcome, just for merely causing drama and exposure on the situation. Or maybe Trump claims it’s a witch hunt to get as many people off his back as he can. Could he actually be hiding things and just trying desperately to keep it all covered up for as long as possible?


There are so many questions and doubts being raised about our president right now. Impeachment is not something to be taken lightly, and even the simple thought of it can be pretty scary. The rest of America will have to wait to see what happens, as only time will reveal the truth.


Meanwhile, relax and know that everything will be sorted out and taken care of eventually. Don’t get too caught up in the politics – stay updated on what’s happening, but don’t let it get the best of you. Besides, there’s no use in getting stressed out over something that is out of our hands. Be sure to take care of yourself, especially if you struggle with PTSD or any other mental illnesses. Maybe chat with a friend, take a bubble bath, or practice meditation – whatever will do the trick in easing all your worries.
