I read that people complain about "post-election depression". In the beginning, let's be clear, depression is a serious illness, it is not to be joked with, nor should its destructive power be minimized, I use this term because it appears in the public space.
But this "depression" is not to be thrown away either. For days, people were looking forward to the fact that something could change in Bosnia and Herzegovina, they were also caught up in some kind of euphoria, so they got ready to go to the polling station. It was a touching gesture, which is a holiday of democracy. It seemed that there really was a reason to celebrate, it is the only day on which we are also asked, when we think that we can influence our lives, and choose candidates who promote values close to our worldviews.
Unfortunately, after a few days, we realized that nothing had fundamentally changed - again everyone won because no one was defeated, everyone was stolen and no one stole, everyone had the support of the people even though the people demanded an explicit dismissal, everyone will protest somewhere and celebrate and then make coalitions in which they will rule together. The situation was further complicated by the High Representative who made decisions that he says will solve the crisis, while everyone else announces that it will deepen. The chaos, in which it is known who drinks and who pays, is prolonged by the Central Election Commission, which hired a younger kindergarten group to count the votes. At the end of it all, "independent" analysts, paid from the party's black funds, get involved with their white-world conspiracies and foreign policy bluster from east to west.
For days there is hysteria produced by the election participants and their mercenaries. In that noise, no one asks us anything anymore. Our lives, worldviews? None of that, but that's why the "post-election depression" found us better.
TWO GROUPS OF ADVISORS
I get annoyed by those who say that the best cure for post-election depression is to stop reading the news. Because if you don't know what is happening to you, then there is no reason to worry.
Really, nothing is easier, if you ask yourself why something has become more expensive, you answer yourself by saying ti is God's giving/will, in this case specifically - taking away. If you complain that there is no heating, you immediately cheer yourself up with the not-at-all-relieving fact that there is a crisis everywhere. If you don't have work, you whisper to yourself into your pillow that it will come - if God allows. You can't pay back the loan - you take a walk in nature and admire the colours of autumn. And that's it - without any worries, you graze the grass calmly like a gentle lamb, if it rains you hide under the eaves.
I notice that those who share such advice are exclusively the same ones who are comfortably tucked away in the state manger, in the part of the barn where their national herd survives. The blindness they recommend suits them best, because if you don't know why something is happening to you, you will never take the pitchfork and head to the master's house.
There exist those who are worse than such advisers. These are the ones who convince you that the age-old enemies of your nation are to blame for the situation you are in. If your answer to them is that you do not belong to any of these nations, they immediately come to you with the claim that it is not important how you perceive yourself, but how your enemy sees you. They have countless arguments to convince you for days that the conflict between the East and West, Occidental and Orient, Islam and Christianity is to blame for your unemployment, that NATO or Russia are responsible for you waiting months for a medical examination, and that the Chetnik-Ustasha-Jihad conspiracy is packing your childs bags (in which there is some truth). Everyone is guilty - freemasons, underground water, sorcerers and dead marshals, but everyone except those who have been constantly deciding on our lives for decades. Counsellors with such theories are more dangerous than the former because they spread hatred. They are not at all paranoid, on the contrary, very calculated. Rafalaja without any risk, defends his never-more comfortable position.
ANOTHER PIECE OF ADVICE THAT DOESN'T HELP
In any case, you should beware of both advisers. Some recommend dull blindness, others blind hatred.
Admittedly, I also have a piece of advice for those who complain about "post-election depression": be proud of it, it is sure proof that you managed to keep your sanity in this madhouse (not to be confused with a psychiatric institution). At least that's how I console myself. I admit, it doesn't help at all.
