Sponsor and Politics

Hi, first time poster.  I have some years clean, working through step 11 currently, have a sponsor, go to meetings regularly.  I have had the same sponsor for 8 years.

During the past 1.5 years, due to the pandemic and politics, I have found myself on complete opposite "sides" of pandemic beliefs and political beliefs of my sponsor.  We typically keep those topics to a minimum and I pretty much laugh off any remarks and keep my mouth shut.
We have been able to have some middle ground convo, but I think we can both tell that we both have deep beliefs that are different from one anothers.

We had a convo last night and it drifted into vaccines, which we have very different beliefs about.  I had taken some action in my life to stand up for my belief in my business (im self employed) and he asked me if my action was based in the steps or in disease.  For me, it was a bit of both.  I'm angry, resentful, scared and feel alone with the state of the world and the great divide among people.  I exercised my rights as a business owner for myself and my employees.  

I guess i want to know how other addicts navigate this stuff in close relationships nowadays.  And how do other addicts navigate dealing with the anger, resentment and fear over the state of the world nowadays?

Thanks for letting me share.
