Anyone else feeling desensitized lately?

Since October, I’ve heard a very particular slur being thrown out more than ever before. Hell I’ve been called it at least 4 times. Including tonight.

I don’t know, it’s like every time I hear it, instead of the intense anger and hurt I used to feel, I’m just like “what else should I expect?”

Maybe I’m just in the wrong place and time and have more keen ears. Maybe the area I’m in is not as safe as I thought it was before.

Either way, I’m just becoming numb. And I don’t know if that should scare me. Should I still react? Or is it better to live without that anger, numb myself because it’s better to live this way than on constant defense.
