Talking

I spent a couple of hours talking to some friends on the phone and am now feeling better. One interesting question I was asked was which is more important to me, my causes or being happy. The guy I was talking to pointed out it seems that I spend so much time learning about the actual state of the world there's little time left for taking care of myself or others. My frequent sense of depression probably stems from feeling like I can't actually do anything to halt the impending environmental collapse.

It's interesting that I find people who are more successful at making change attractive. Perhaps I don't actually want a romantic relationship and instead am actually after fellow revolutionaries. (Or at least I'm looking for someone better at reaching out to others as I know that's important for changing society and I'm really bad at it.)
