NOTE: What’s interesting to consider in this episode is that it’s recorded in 2016 when Donald Trump was first elected. NOT in 2020 after election day…
What an exhausting election season in the USA… and what an outcome!
This week as much as we tried to avoid politics (and we largely kind of did), we did discuss what we observed and somewhat felt watching on at such a remarkable turn of events with the US election of Donald Trump.
But this discussion was an honest reflection on whether our views and opinions are well founded, whether we jump to conclusions about other people in our circle and our communities, and most importantly whether we and other people are letting the outcome of an election literally dictate our happiness.
There seems to be no actual “happy” outcome that would satisfy everyone.
So is there any point in expending valuable emotional energy on the outcomes? Or is this in fact the most pressing and urgent time in our history to wake up and truly care?
I think you’ll find this discussion interesting…
