People Feel Crummy
People who are very sensitive to all of these changes may begin to harden their hearts and withdraw just to survive. Others find themselves experiencing something like jetlag or a hangover. It’s no wonder that the U.S. and the world are addicted to caffeine just to make it through the day. Even our young people who should be at their highest level of energy in their lives find it appealing to drink “energy drinks.”
To get through this period of time we have to give ourselves and others a lot of slack. We need a lot of self-care and care for others. We need to realize that the whole world is going through it with us. Some are better at coping than others. Some crumble under the pressure. Some become caffeinated monsters, determined to keep going no matter what. They are toxic to others who have chosen to cope by slowing down and remaining calm.
