i am thinking, right now, about how i feel a bit torn with trying to balance my concerns for my personal wellbeing and my concerns with human rights/social justice. i have not yet found a way to directly become involved in the movements that advocate for things i believe in greatly while still being able to keep my own shit together, financially and otherwise. i have tried, admittedly minimally, to simply raise awareness by sharing the small amount of information on these causes that i possess with my friends, coworkers, etc (be it in-person or through social media) and so far it seems like nobody cares very much or is interested at all. i am frustrated by that but i feel like i maybe shouldn’t be because i haven’t done anything to act on my own concerns. just feeling a bit frustrated, both with people in general and with myself.
Every moment think steadily as a Roman and a man to do what thou hastin hand with perfect and simple dignity, and feeling of affection,and freedom, and justice; and to give thyself relief from all otherthoughts. And thou wilt give thyself relief, if thou doest every actof thy life as if it were the last, laying aside all carelessnessand passionate aversion from the commands of reason, and all hypocrisy,and self-love, and discontent with the portion which has been givento thee. Thou seest how few the things are, the which if a man layshold of, he is able to live a life which flows in quiet, and is likethe existence of the gods; for the gods on their part will requirenothing more from him who observes these things.
