Unless someone like you
cares a whole awful lot,
nothing is going to get better.
Dr. Seuss | THE LORAX
You show up because you care, but caring is not enough. What you are fighting for isn't going to happen right now. What you are protecting is going to continue to be attacked and broken apart. What you stand for isn't going to be accepted.
That thing you are doing, it's not going to work this time.
Or the next.
And probably not the next time either.
But caring means you keep showing up. You continue to stand your ground. You continue to fall, then get back up. You continue to fail, and fail, and fail. Birth and death playing themselves out for eons.
Unless someone like you cares a whole lot and relentlessly shows up, nothing is going to get better. It's not.
