Yesterday, I read the news about
- the conservative U.S. Supreme Court’s intent to take away a woman’s right to choose (a right which a huge majority of citizens support),
- how the SCOTUS decision will erode other rights,
- the projected outcome of the U.S. midterm elections, with the Democrats losing the tenuous control they now have,
- the war in Ukraine,
- irreversible global warming,
… and I felt very pessimistic, helpless, and hopeless. In other words, I felt like I was out on a ledge.
I decided to name those feelings on Twitter, assuming that other people might be feeling the same way. I got a lot of helpful and empathic responses, with some joining me on the ledge and others urging me to get off the ledge and fight for the rights and the future I want.
Are any of my images today out on a ledge?
The Daily Bitch often seems like she is out on a ledge.
Thanks to all those who help me whenever I’m out on a ledge, including YOU.
