How can you hold the world on your shoulders by yourself? You can't. But there's more.
Most stuff about the environment makes you seem so small, so insignificant...
...that you feel powerless to make any kind of tangible change.
You say to yourself: "What the hell can I do? I'm just one person."
And then you give up...
...put cotton in your ears, and go back to trying not to think about our place in this world and what we leave behind for our kids. Because the alternative is to feel like you just don't have any way to make the situation better, to reverse the millennia of abuse of our systems.
Kinda feels like this.
You feel like you can't put the cork back in a bottle we already shook too hard.
Reality can be hard.
And so you focus on things you can change instead.
You know what I've learned in my two years of curating about getting people to help change things?
We can do this.
And that's where this video comes in. It's a pretty simple ask.
The only thing I'll ask you to do right now is *watch it.*
We're in this together.
Where do you go from here?Find some small way you can help. Join a local organization. If you are in Canada, join the David Suzuki Foundation's plan to make a larger impact by starting small. Share this if you want to. Find one friend and encourage them to join you and do something in your community. Instead of feeling hopeless, be like Atlas. Lift up the Earth from your small vantage point and just do something.
