So lately I've been extremely frustrated with the powers that be and their decisions. I've found myself mentally regressing when I get avoid thinking about the problems in the world. The thinking behind this is simple, I didn't give a shit about politics or ideology or the problems of the world when I was 3. Normally I would have no problem with regression as a coping mechanism, but I don't think that I'm merely stressed, but angry and simply trying to distract myself.
I am afraid that I am using regression to repress my anger. I believe that getting angry (not irrational, crazy anger) is the best way to encourage change. I'm afraid that my use of regression is a move towards apathy and apoliticalism, which I strongly object to.
I'm not really looking for the inevitable reassurance that I can get here (which is something I think we do well, yay us). I'm asking people that in a world full of problems that deserve our attention, at what point do we say "enough, there's only so much I can do?" When does legitimate frustration become a problem? When is it alright to be angry?
I've only started to hang around the MT board recently. I've been thinking about this for a while but haven't posted recently because of exams. Anyway, now that I've got the big questions down it feels reassuring, reading over them now I not sure how anyone will answer them, but the're intended to be more thought provoking than debate provoking.
