Why You Need to Become a Changemaker
Political tensions, drought, war, inflation, climate change, economic collapse, Covid-19, food insecurity, violence, displacement, poverty, social marginalization, racism, confused society, and the list goes on and on.
I don’t know your story or where you live, but I know you have either experienced pain or seen its effects personally. Pain is part of life, whether we want to face that fact or not. Pain is at the root of almost every problem we see worldwide. Why discuss pain? Pain often paralyzes people to stay in their current state instead of being the catalyst for change.
As a world, we must learn how to embrace our pain and move forward. Although embracing pain might sound deranged, it is the road we must take because we must thoroughly understand the magnitude of the problems we have created and are dealing with to start healing and fixing the issues around us.
When we feel pain, it brings us to live in the moment; nothing else matters right now. This feeling we are experiencing has our full attention. We can not think about anything else until it stops.
That is how we need to think about the issues we are dealing with. You may think, well, I am no Mother Teresa; I have a full plate of things and problems I am dealing with.
Take a deeper look at the problems you are dealing with personally, and I bet, no, I am almost certain that it’s tied to a more significant global issue. Do you have a health problem, a messed-up relationship, unemployed, hardly any money, demanding children, don’t know where your next meal is coming from, insecure, mental illness, abused, or burnt out?
It’s deeper than you think.
Please open your eyes to the fact that you are not alone in your problem; it’s not an isolated incident you are experiencing.
Each problem we are dealing with is part of an extension of a larger one. Remember that we are all connected somehow. You should become a changemaker because what you see in the world reflects you and who doesn’t want to see the best version of themselves looking back.
