This is my open door for people who need to blow off some steam or talk. Feel free to contact me here via messages or via Discord.

This is a stressful time for all, and sometimes we just need to talk or rant for a bit. I want to make that available to those who need it.

Requests:

Understand I may not get right away back to you. I work full time, have college work, and have a family. I will get back to you, just not right away. You can schedule time if you'd like.

Please let me know if you want a response, you want solutions if I have any, or if you just want to throw words at a wall and have someone listening.

For my part what shocks me the most is the reaction of people. A global crisis, thousands of deaths quickly and although some help each other show a selfishness without a blind eye.

This crisis removes me more from human nature, I try to make an effort but most people deserve nothing and in no case deserves that We Jedi give our time for them.

In my country people are rushing into the supermarket, when they should be confined, they go out because there is sunshine to later complain that the government is asking people to go to work.
They want everything without doing anything and without giving anything, we live in a time of selfishness and laziness and unfortunately even we Jedi cannot change human nature.

I would say the biggest issue right now is the mindset of the people. I see two "sides" if you will: the economic side, and the moral side. My meaning is the economy v.s the people affected and how we should approach it. Both are important so we should, imo, strive to find a compromise. IE slowly reopening, which NC is, to avoid maximum cases while also slowly rebuilding the economy. The problem from where I stand is that the extremes on those sides, being economy-focused and people-focused, want everything reopened and all-but saying fuck the weak ones, while the other says fuck the economy we must save everyone, which is basically impossible without throwing the economy down the hole. That's where I see frustration; the lack of balance because both sides wants to be "right"

I'm going be a bit of a hypocrite. But we as Jedi are the choosen ones to show what human nature should be. These are dark times. We as Jedi should be a light. What ever that light might look like. Maybe it's making a vent fourm like this? Maybe it's sharing knowledge? Maybe it's standing up for what is right? What ever it is don't let the dark times define who you are as Jedi.

My encouragement during these times.

I was mistaken. It IS a bit frustrating to see that this is now fast approaching 6 months.

The longer this drags on the less inclined I am to believe that things will return to some sense of normal

I'm also pissed that in the US this has become a partisan issue.
The partisan-ness of it all is making it difficult not to give into ideas of conspiracy

Conspiracy is a bit like god, for when things cannot immediately be explained and you have no obvious other answer (even if there may be one). I feel that a lot of what is happening is because of fear. Some channel that fear into the sensible measures we are being asked to do, other are channeling it through denial. I suspect people always react these ways in the face of such times, we just get to see all the ugly faces of it at once now.
