Why We Will All Be Happier When the Brexit Vote Is Done

The debates are heated. The opinions are loud and fierce. The politicians are sharing opposing views. The people are confused.

As we await for the Brexit Poll to take place on 23 June, we are living in a miserable state of uncertainty. That's why when the poll takes place and we'll get the final results, we'll all be happier regardless of the outcome.

Here's what's making us miserable right now:

  • The country is getting divided into two. We are starting to fight against each other even though we all want the same outcome (a thriving United Kingdom). The only difference between the two groups is their opinion of how to achieve it.
  • We are living in a state of uncertainty. And as humans we don't like it. It makes us feel nervous about the future. We have enough uncertainty in our own daily lives to deal with governmental uncertainty. It's going to be a close call and nobody knows how it's going to turn out.
  • We are waiting for our opportunity to voice our opinion through voting. Right now it feels like it's out of our hands as we hear the debates going on around us. We've picked our side and we simply want to play our purposeful role in this decision.

So why will the vote and its results make us all happier when it comes around?

  • We'll all feel more united again. Sure, the losing side might a bit sore at the start but once the decision has been made we will all start to work together towards that common goal again: helping the United Kingdom thrive.
  • We'll all feel a bit more secure about the future because one thing is certain: either we're staying or going. Going does bring a whole new load of questions into the equation but at least we can then start diving into those one by one.
  • Once we have voted, we will feel slightly happier (if you are able to and decide to vote that is). We will feel like we have connected with the people who agree with us and we will get a sense of meaning from having played a part in influencing the outcome. This effect is even more powerful in close polls and we all know that's the case with Brexit.

With all that in mind, it's clear that the tension will only grow as the vote quickly approaches. It is good that the end is in sight as people will feel more motivated to get educated about both sides of the argument.

Sit tight. We're nearly there. And once we get there we'll all be happier, together.
