hi
have you considered emigrating or moving to village or cutting off from news to feel better mentally? maybe some of you have already done it?

If my country was invaded, or something of that proportion, I'd probably only know about it a couple days later, at lunch with my parents.

And I'm mentally healthier for it.
Is this now?

I've considered not reading the news but I'd rather be in the know about certain things. I like to be informed and it helps shape my worldview. This doesn't include local news, I don't really care at that level.

As for moving away, I have considered it but I have created a slice of stability for myself and I'd hate to ruin that.
