Can One Person Make Change?

Can One Person Make Change?


There are way to many people that say that we can't change things; that the matter is too big and either out of our hands or out of our control to see any movement from one person.  I totally disagree with this attitude.  

For the naysayers, it's time to start looking at how change happens.  Change doesn't happen by people sitting back and doing nothing or living separate lives from the world around them.  Change happens by getting up and creating a voice about what is important to you and the people around you.

I hear people say: "Don't fuss, it's not worth the energy;" "Why make a big deal out of it.  Life has always been like this;" "Don't worry about something you cannot change;" but this way of thinking is misleading and false.  First, can you imagine if we all thought this way?  No change would happened.  Besides, why are we leaving the change for someone else?  Second, this is exactly how the big guys wants you to think--don't fuss!  They want you to stay passive and quiet and continue with your own life without making a kerfuffle. The thing is, these huge institutional structures of modern capitalism--government officials, business corporations, financial institutions, stock exchanges, and insurance companies--are going to keep making you think this way.  This world and everything that goes on in it, is a big deal and it should concern every individual that lives on this planet because we are all involved; we all reside on this planet.

Don't you want to leave a legacy for your children?  Don't you want to leave the world a better place for your children, your grandchildren, the people you love, or humanity in general?

Sometimes we have this notion that all people are good; that no one intentionally wants to self-destruct or hurt this world, but this way of thinking is misleading as well.  Study psychology of crime and you will understand that not everyone is like you and me.  Some individuals don't (for unknown reasons we may never understand) give a rats-ass about you, me, or the world they live in.  We can define the psychopaths in such a manner.  Have you ever heard about the "white-collar psychopath?"  Psychopaths are actually quite brilliant, manipulative, full of ego and grandiose, and ONLY have their self-interest in mind even when they make it appear as though you are important.  Psychopaths run rampant in the corporate world.  Can you pick one out?  He/she will wine you and dine you, appease you, and tell you that you are the best, but in the end, they have an agenda in mind; an agenda of self-interest.  They don't give a damn about you or the world they live in.  They take what they need, and they don't stop!  It is time that we all become aware of these types of CEO's, corporate presidents, and others in the stock market or any other financial institution.  Of course, not all of them are psychopaths either, but don't you feel we should at least be aware of this?    

Anyways, when you need to make change in your home or your place of employment, your community, city, district, province, the nation, or internationally, start by:
  1. Creating networks of like-minded individuals.
  2. Create a voice and use material to back your information up.  
  3. Don't pull crap out of thin air; it's not viable and you lose credibility.
  4. You need some tolerance to risk.
  5. You must be fully grounded for back-lash.

Throw Out Balance and Replace it With This

On the internet running through blog, Facebook, and IG posts or videos, there is always a wave of the same concepts of discussion each week. One person/business throws out an idea to talk about that week, and then many others (to figure out what they can discuss, post, or video that week) grab onto someone else's topic and put another spin on it. That's it. If you pay close attention to the posts, you will see what I am talking about. Take a look at the weekly discussions and see the uniformity in the topics of discussion, including the quotes that are posted. Perhaps it is coincidental. Perhaps it is collective energetic thought that brings this about. But, in most cases, I'm thinking it may be more about "What do I talk about this week?" and then grab an idea from someone else.

It is difficult to find weekly, let alone daily, topics to discuss and, at the same time, give good value to your audience. I get that. I've done the same thing. I'm guilty, but…

5 Strategies to Support Trauma Survivors

TRAUMA and ISOLATION

There is no single treatment for complex trauma such as PTSD or Complex PTSD, but the cornerstone of treatment is building a collaborative working relationship with the survivor. They need to restore safety and trust in human connection. The major drawbacks to healing from chronic trauma and C-PTSD is isolation. If individuals fear coming forward (due to stigma, minimization of the events, delayed reporting, an oppressive society, self-shame or public shaming) and how they may react to their environment, they are left to figure things out on their own. There are many individuals that never receive formal treatment and, instead, invest in their own methods by trial-and-error. I did because there was nothing out there. Also, anytime I'd go to the doctors office, it was said that "It was all in my head." Back then in the 80's and 90's and early 2000's, no one could see the enduring effects of chronic childhood abuse, repeated sexual assaults…

Our NOW Is Littered With Our Past

"Trying to resist, change, or avoid the enormous influence of the past keeps us foolishly focused on it. Yet we're reluctant to leave it behind, reluctant to transform the pervasive hold it has on our present-time lives. Not doing so, however, results in an endless continuum of living a "now" that is littered with the detritus of the past. There is no better arena to watch this play out than in our relationships."~Nancy Zapolski
