Activism and Stress

Okay short post (finally!).  I have been an activist since as long as I can remember.

But it doesn’t bring me stress.

I find that often people confuse my activism and seeking answers for injustice as stress.

It’s not.  It’s easy to confuse passion with stress.  But for me, passionately caring about issues is not stress.

“Working hard for something we don’t care about is called stress; working hard for something we love is called passion.” -Simon Sinek

For me it is stressful to go about in the world in ignorance and overlook injustice.

ACT-tivist.  Talking publicly about difficult topics is a form of activism.  Action rather than ignorance and releases stress for me – it does not cause it.   It brings me hope, happiness and satisfaction that I have not just stood by.
