Thank you for sharing, Larry. I think the word imperfection is a good place to begin, and the location of imperfection that leads to disillusionment. Sometimes, it means making a slight adjustment in where our attentions are focused. For example, I spend almost zero percent of my attention on social media, with the exception of sites such as this where the focus is positively directed. It means eliminating watching and reading over and over again the same news cycles that are designed to trigger such reactions as you have. I like to remind myself of the Buddha's facial expression where he sees all but is bothered by nothing because he understands something deeper.
There are only a few places I like to focus my attention: reading books that I choose for the content they provide that stimulates consciousness I wish to replicate. Daily walks in nature, even if in the evening around the block under the open sky because nature is the only place where "imperfection" dissolves since nature holds no imperfection. A study of nature and the writing of nature haiku will train the mind to follow and focus on those perfect areas of the natural world we depend upon so much for sanity in a world whereour disconnect from nature creates the opposite too often.
