I am in that "we are all going to die, soon" mindset

Is this permanent?

Is this common?

1. I believe our destruction of the planet doesn't bode well for our longevity.

2. No, I don't think we are all going to die, but we sure are going to live through the nastiness

created by Republicans hell-bent on holding onto power regardless of the cost.

3. Well, either way

You should try to make the most of each day. Tomorrow is never guaranteed for any of us.

5. The planet is not going to die

Civilization is not going to die. Humanity is not going to die. We are not 'weak and puny' as so many movies and TV shows portray us. Are we as individuals going to die, soon? Compared to the Sun or the Galaxy, yes it will be soon.

7. I think even the most ardent optomists are "glass 1/10th full" by now.

Some of it might lift if/when we finally get a foothold on the pandemic--have a season or two where it is endemic but manageable.

8. In the grand scheme/larger picture, you're spot on!

Our little lives, while plenty interesting to us, are tiny microcosms in a speck of time...
