Doing things differently, even when it's for a great goal like contributing to a more sustainable future, can sometimes feel like a lonely endeavour.
To build a better world, it's so important to stay curious and ask questions, but the status quo doesn't like to be challenged.
Have you ever gotten the message from others that you're being "difficult" for asking questions, doing things differently, or even just setting personal boundaries?
I have. That's why when I recently came across this quote by the anthropologist, environmentalist, and living legend Jane Goodall, I instantly remembered that I am far from alone. There are a LOT of us who have questions and want answers. A lot of us who, when the status quo is harmful or destructive, want to help change that.
If that's all it takes to be called “difficult”, then I embrace that label with open arms.
Go on, try me ✨
