Politics are stressful & part of protecting yourself from burnout is avoiding people who bring you down. I have a lot of friends active on Facebook who in years of association haven’t given me the time of day, maybe because I’m too brash, maybe because I’m too radical, maybe because I’m not of their class. It feels like passive-aggression & it’s not comfortable to me. So to protect myself from indignity & the bum’s rush, I will be unfriending them. A woman has to do what a woman has to do to not get burned out.
