That sounds rough. I can't comment on the situation with you and your relatives, but I definitely have struggled with frustration over what's going on in the world right now. It's a particular mental health challenge because for me depression can manifest itself as a sort of learned helplessness, which is very easy to fall into with the world situation being what it is. Just try to remember that who you are and what you believe matters, even if it doesn't seem like it does.I am growing angrier and angrier at the state of the government and racism and bigotry going on in the US. There is a KKK rally tomorrow near me and I want to go counter protest but my sister is arguing with me that it's best not to give them attention. Now my 4 year old niece over heard us talking and my sister kept saying I'd get hurt going there and my niece started crying begging me not to go so I don't get hurt. I feel like my sister knew what she was doing by saying that in front of her now guilt tripping me into not going and doing what I believe in. I am just angry so much right now.
