Gotta Keep It Moving!!!

Hello and Good Morning! I'm up bright and early and on my way to buy a few more groceries and coffee. I need more coffee! I've been doing fine without coffee until all of this stress built up. Went to the store yesterday and I saw it coming. A drunk lady came my way and before I could get up she said something designed to provoke an argument. I tried to get out of the way before a big commotion started. You have to really keep it moving these days. As soon as you let your guard down there's trouble in your way! And some man was trying to get my phone number. Everytime I go to talk to somebody somebody gets in the conversation. I'm worried about my health living in this city. I feel pressure in my chest from all this commotion. I hate to be rude, but I have to keep it moving! I'm not standing around talking to people as friendly as I used to. Do you find you have to keep more distance these days?!

It seems these days people are believeing all kinds of lies from propaganda news to the internet and I think they are losing their minds. It is a shame what is happening to America. But look, a city is a place where you will run into many different kinds of characters. Believe me. I live here in Brooklyn New York. And I see my share of crazy people. We need to just ignore them.

You try your best to ignore these things! Everything turns into a big commotion or arguments these days! I can imagine Brooklyn New York. I try to politely walk away but an argument breaks out almost everyday. I leave these people alone, now they can leave me alone! They don't want to be bothered with me, so now leave me alone! I'm too nice sometimes I think. This is a magnet for everything I don't want to be bothered with.

@db20747 An argument only turns out if both people engage in it. I ignore stupid ignorant people. Look, so many people today actually believe in conspiracy theories. I find that crazy. How did America become so stupid? I thought we were moving forward from all the garbage these people are spewing. Amazing. That's why I wish I were president. I would fix everything. We are the people and we are being screwed over by our politicians and the corporations. Sad.

I grew up in Philadelphia and I ignored people to the best of my ability. Now I live in a very rural quiet community where most keep to themselves when out and about. I am sorry that others are giving you stress, feeling pressure in your chest.
This post is a blessing for me. I have been sitting here too long now, so your title is screaming at me, and I need to get up and get going. I'm sipping a coffee right now too, but lingering over it for too long. I have to go out and run and errand, and I am putting that off. I keep my distance always, and I respect those that do the same. We can smile in passing and not lose any time, right?
Yes sometimes, if you're not comfortable to an environment and making you to a sense of having those commotion in your chest, try to move out and be in a place where you can be comfortable enough. A place where you can set and be free from commotions.
