This interview with Lori Gottlieb by Jon Stewart helps me realize my political anxiety is normal and that I should try to make it productive. But what can I do?

  • Get involved in a campaign? Writing my thoughts is as far as I can go. Whenever I tried joining a political group, its internal politics and strategics were repulsive to me.
  • Volunteer? I just found a program to help kids with homework, via that I didn’t know about.
  • Vote? ✅
  • Encourage people around you to vote? ✅

It still feels like not enough.

Also, Jon is hilarious:

My anxiety has never saved me from bears, but it often convinces me I’m not lovable.
