Keeping Your Cool While Trying to Change the World

activismIf activism was easy, it wouldn't be necessary. The things we seek to change are, by their nature, quite resistant to change. Meaningful change is rarely easy, but that does not make it any less necessary. And so we persist.

Those of us who engage in any sort of activism are almost certain to experience feelings of burnout, disillusionment, or disappointment related to our efforts. We will often feel like giving up, and some among us will undoubtedly do so.

JLLOW over at No Meritocracy has a great post for the activists and aspiring activists among us: The JLLOW Home Journal's Guide to Keeping Cool and Not Losing Your Shit Whilst Trying to Change The World. Given some of my recent feelings, this couldn't have come at a better time.
