Be the change you want to see
People get offended when told of their shortcomings. It’s way easier to place blame on others and the roles others played in the outcome of our lives. Racism, sexism, classism, plus other -isms. Income inequality, discrimination, evil corporations, generational poverty, etc. These are all EXTERNAL factors. I don’t doubt that they exist and they had a hand in our outcomes, but there is not much we can do as individuals to solve these issues in our lifetimes. Instead of pointing fingers at “the system” or monolithic but abstract groups, WE NEED TO BE THE CHANGE WE WANT TO SEE.
