There are many important and troubling issues in our world today. We have become aware of how many there are because of the Internet. Unsustainable consumption, greed, human trafficking, manipulation of masses by media, governments, and big companies, change of climate, domestic violence, rights of particular groups of people, rights of animals – these are just a few of them. One person cannot engage in solving all of them and most of us become completely overwhelmed when facing the lot. This is why we need to choose. Pick one or several topics, as much as you can handle, and devote your attention to them. Do your research, see the specific matter from different perspectives, communicate your concerns and listen to other points of view. Analyse your involvement – what you personally can do to start solving the problem. Righteous indignation can bring you solidarity with people in your closest circle while smouldering ire will burn you out. To solve an issue, you need more than anger. You need tenacity, resilience, and patience. You need to be committed and prepared to face consequences of your actions; all of them. Every act has repercussions so, we must be mindful of the way we start our fires. Before you do something, ask yourself – why am I doing this? How is it helping me and how does it assist the cause? What do I want to achieve? How can my actions backfire? There is a place for passion, there is a place for caution and there is a place for working hard to achieve your goal. Very often what is important to you does not form the focal point in life of somebody else so, do not get angry or disappointed when you find out that they picked a different matter to worry about or to solve.
