Co-dependent. Relationally Addicted. Performance Anxiety. An inability to have a healthy, mutually satisfying relationship. These buzzwords and phrases have been around for quite some time. These people agree with everyone, are constantly apologizing, feel responsible for everyone to feel good, are overburdened in their care for others, avoid conflict and can’t admit when they’re feeling hurt.
In the weeks and months leading up to the 2016 US Presidential election, the prominence of fake news became a major problem. Fraudulent articles spread throughout social media (Facebook, Twitter) like wildfire. The CIA said that Russia was propagating fake news stories as part of a psychological and cyberwarfare campaign. Confusion abounded and truth was sometimes hard to discern in a world that seemed stranger than fiction.
