The last couple of days my brain has felt blank. there’s just this constant background static of annoying things in my life all the time and it’s making my brain just shut down. I’m glad I have the comic stuff at least planned out enough that I can autopilot the actual creation process at the moment. I feel disconnected from everything and overwhelmed by it at the same time. I don’t know. Just talk amongst yourselves. I’m gonna do some damn thing. Sorry.

No. You know what? I just thought of something. Stupid people never realize how exasperating they are to smart people. It’s like they just suck the life right out of you. The thing is that no matter how hard you try they’ll never understand what you’re trying to tell them. They can only get there at their own pace so it’s like banging your head against a wall. They’re fine, but you’re slowly dying.

It’s the same with conspiracy theorists or even people who don’t share your political opinions. You can’t change their minds. You can’t do anything so all the energy you expend is worthless. To you it looks like it’s all there, black and white, clear as crystal, but to them it’s mud. And a lot of the time they aren’t being malicious. They just understand the world in a way that’s different from the other person, possibly a wrong way, but there’s nothing you can do to help. They have to decide to change, you can’t decide for them.
