American Apathy

Feeling indifferent or lacking emotion, is more often than not a clear and present danger sign of depression, or misuse of drugs.

Anyone feeling uninterested in relationships, unmotivated at work, uninterested in school, or just feeling empty doesn’t know why they feel apathy. Sometimes, apathetic feelings are a result of things we can recognize and change. For example, we’re feeling bored at work or we’re no longer attracted to someone we once felt attracted to, on interested in learning from our mistakes.

But sometimes apathy is a symptom of a larger issue we’re facing, like trauma, grief, or an underlying mental health condition.

If we are feeling empty and apathetic, it’s important to understand where those feelings come from and what we can do to change them.

  • Neglecting your responsibilities, like not engaging with work or school or caring about consequences. 
  • Lack of motivation to complete goals or make changes to your lifestyle, even if they would benefit you.
  • Low or no reaction to emotions, like not feeling or expressing emotions, either positive or negative.
  • Neglecting your needs, like self-care, hygiene, diet, exercise, or regular sleep patterns.
  • Not engaging with others, including friends, teachers, classmates, or coworkers.
  • Difficulty starting or finishing everyday tasks, jobs, chores, or homework. 
  • Lack of interest in hobbies that you once enjoyed.
  • Feeling fatigued or low energy.

Once upon a time in the USA, Americans showed tremendous interest in the states of their nation. With incredible zeal, these citizens worked tirelessly to correct local, national, or international issues that threatened them, showing great resolve while addressing any elected or appointed public official that didn’t accurately represent their beliefs, ethics, morals, and values.

An apathetic American attitude is prevalent and we should regain the sense of ownership that once prevailed. 

Are you in agreement with the way our government is handled, have you given up hope that your opinion will bring change, are you concerned about what the consequences of speaking out would bring, or are you too involved with your own little world to actually give a crap, or as I like to say "Shif-a-git" about where our nation is headed?

America's threat is apathy and entitlement…

Americans are apathetic following C-SPAN's released poll of historians who ranked the one term, twice impeached Trump just above losers like Franklin Pierce, Andrew Johnson, and James Buchanan, our country’s worst chief executives.
