Times are tough, and we're really just getting started. This situation is a long haul, and you need to get mentally prepared for that. You've got to learn to manage your stress.
It seems like the crisis the US finds itself in goes on and on, mutates, turns into a different crisis, and the cycle is never-ending. After all, nothing has been the same since 2020, when Covid mandates began. As Selco predicted, the virus wasn't what we needed to worry about. It was the system.
Now, just as the mandates begin to get rolled back, the specter of World War 3 is on the horizon, with all the goings-on between Russia and Ukraine. Will anything come of this over here in America? It's impossible to say, really. But people are buying potassium iodide tablets like they're going out of style and collecting information about how to survive a nuclear war.
This isn't to mention the prices of gas, food, and everything else skyrocketing for a population that still hasn't recovered from nearly two years of mandates that restricted their ability to make money. Add to this shortages brought on by a variety of factors, and going to the store sure isn't like it used to be.
Talk about stress.
It's enough to keep a person under a constant burden of stress. It's one thing after another. And the hits just keep on coming.
I have some bad news. They're going to keep on coming. Don't expect this to be over soon and for life to magically return to pre-Covid normal. There are some bells that cannot be unrung, and we're watching cause and effect in real-time.
