Politics and friendship

I’m stressed.

A friend of mine has gone down a political rabbit hole.

We used to share a lot of the same opinions. That made it really easy to talk about whats going on in the world.

No longer. Their views have changed a lot. We end up arguing all the time. and the spats get me agitated for DAYS afterward.

The list of topics that feel “safe” to discuss is getting smaller all the time. It feels like the friendship is dying. Which makes me very sad.

Anybody deal with something like this? And come out with the friendship intact? Any tips?
