From a reader:
As atheists we know better than to use woo to console us: Karma, prayer, chakras, puh-lease…
But I really need to re-charge as the world of non-profit in which I work goes from suck to doomsday across the country. The more I try to come up with a logical solution to this problem the worse I feel. The thoughtful answers are no good.
So what do you do when you feel like you are on the Titanic?
What do you do to make yourself feel better when all the news you hear is depressing?
Turning to friends or family is the best answer I can think of, though that is usually temporary. Even though it’s nice to know there are people who love and support you, the problems won’t disappear on their own.
