I lost confidence in all that I had faith in and figured out how to trust myself

You can lose something by losing confidence in it. You can lose something by losing trust in it. You can lose things by not trusting in them any longer. You can lose individuals when connections end. You can lose individuals when you decide to leave for your own security and mental stability. You can lose individuals, spots and things for some reasons. You can have things taken from you or surrender them intentionally despite the fact that it harms you to do as such. You can lose individuals by abandoning them. Passing isn't the lone way you lose somebody.

I experienced childhood in a Conservative Evangelical Christian family. Since early on I fostered an interest in legislative issues. I went to political conventions and occasions, watched political news shows each night and paid attention to live radio. I kept awake until late on political race evenings watching the outcomes come in and visiting with outsiders on the web while we supported our number one Republican applicants. I read political news locales fanatically. I lived and inhaled governmental issues, my definitive aspiration being to one day work at one of my number one Conservative media sources close by the entirety of my legends.

In school I gladly remained with my hand over my heart and discussed the promise of faithfulness every morning. In school shows, my heart loaded up proudly as we sang energetic tunes. I profoundly cherished America and was pleased to be an American, a Conservative and a Christian. I was youthful, yet those things were imperative to me and I had faith in them with my entire existence.

Then, at that point came 2016. I was 18 years of age and blissful to at long last have the option to cast a ballot in the Republican essential just as the overall political race. I watched the official discussions, paid attention to the radio, stared at the TV programs and supported my number one up-and-comer, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas. However at that point the unbelievable happened when Donald Trump won the essential and turned into the Republican candidate. I was stunned, alarmed, crushed and apprehensive.

In the result I looked as my #1 talking heads and political savants who I had been paying attention to since I was extremely youthful, who I gazed upward to, regarded and surprisingly venerated, embraced and upheld Trump. I felt deceived and sorrowful. All that I had grown up accepting, all that I had gained from them; standards over gatherings and governmental issues, opportunity, beliefs, American temperance, they hadn't implied any of it. Trump was unmistakably not a Conservative or even an ethical individual, at this point they said "it doesn't make any difference, he's superior to Hillary".

At the point when final voting day came I didn't decide in favor of him.

I quit considering myself a Conservative.

I quit devouring political news. I became detached to the condition of the nation and the world.

I was baffled. I didn't have the foggiest idea where I should have been for sure I accepted any longer. I realized that I was unable to help or decide in favor of a man that spoke about ladies in such terrible manners. A man that was apparently oppressive, remorseless and flippant.

The focal point through which I saw the world broke. I didn't have the foggiest idea how to feel about America any longer. My feeling of pride and enthusiasm blurred. We quit flying the American banner at my home.

I lost confidence in my country, my administration, legislative issues, and in individuals I had turned upward to and regarded the most.
To be continued...
