      my first stab at writing down my fear, anger, and discomfort of the world. it's not perfect, but i'd love to dialogue on these issues because they are very much on my mind!!

        My first thought: Panaceas are overrated and spite is underrated.

        I think that to a certain extent disillusionment is normal and healthy. I feel like there’s an important balance to be struck between being at peace with the fact that the latest utopian vision will not be realized any time soon while also not becoming completely jaded or complacent with the status quo.

        This article was shared with me recently and I really liked what the author had to say about how we might best affect the change we want to see in the world: https://www.raptitude.com/2019/09/care-deeply-not-passionately/
