But if you don't fit into all of those boxes or the people closest to you don't fit into all of those boxes, there are going to be some pretty dramatic losses in your near future. Even if that loss is just knowing court case after court case will be argued in hopes of somehow marginalizing your life.
So maybe if you are in the lucky ducky won't be impacted category, regardless of who you voted for, you can just take a hot minute and realize how insulting it is to tell your friends and family they need to move on and get over it because it won't be that bad. If you are in the category that won't be impacted, I'm happy for you. But for the rest of us, I just can't begin to explain the sadness and fear swirling around our hearts and heads.
Perhaps the next time your friend or family member or co-worker opens up about their feelings, you can just give them a hug or tell them you care about them. You don't have to agree with them. Just please stop trying to tell people their fears aren't important because your life is going to remain unchanged.
