Have you ever experienced a moment so intense or unexpected that it feels as if you can feel the vibrations of fear and anxiety?
I don’t mean physically, per se, although that might also be true. What I am referring to is like how it feels when you look at this image:
Two things are immediately juxtaposed that your brain cannot rationalize.
I imagine that is how a lot of people felt right after the election, how they still feel about it, how I felt as well. Like my lifelong experience told me something was completely impossible, and then it happened. Maybe like watching a magic trick that is so realistic it actually frightens you instead of dazzles you. An experience that is too real to be fake but not possibly true.
Except it is true. That is what makes it so difficult to swallow, what intensifies those vibrations.
