Sometimes the amount of injustice in the world can make us feel powerless, but I took back the power and you can too. Here's my top five tips on how to fight injustice.
1. Recognise when something is wrong
Just because that's how it's always been doesn't mean that's how it should always be. Question everything and you may realise the things you accepted are unacceptable.
2. Decide to do something about it
Nothing ever changed by moaning about it. If you want things to be better make a conscious choice to do something, someone has to.
3. Find like minded people
Without my merry men I would never have been able to have an impact. Chances are if you feel strongly about something, others will too. Seek them out, there's power in numbers.
4. Stay Strong
Making a change isn't easy and there will be people that don't want you to succeed, people who like things how they are. If your intentions are true, then keep them in your heart and be prepared to fight for them.
5. Never give up
Changing things takes time. Sometimes the things we do seem like they're not making any difference at all - but a tiny drop in the ocean creates a ripple that can become a wave.
Standing up for what you believe in can takes guts, but it's worth it, because one person can make a difference.
When you're lost in the dark (after facing a beast) things can feel hopeless and it might seem like you'll never make it home again. Here are some tips for finding your way back to the light.
Lost in the dark it can feel like you're all alone. But you're not. You have your memories and your imagination. Conjure up the good times, the things you love about home, imagine yourself there and you will soon feel motivated to move.
Finding your way home isn't easy, especially if you let the fear and worry creep into the darkness with you. Hold onto the belief that you will get home, even if it is hard to imagine ever escaping the maze.
You might feel like you're on your own but you're not! You have your greatest friend and ally - you have yourself. You must trust your own instincts and trust yourself to know which way to go.
4. Keep Going
You may feel like you're getting nowhere, just scrabbling around in the dark forever. But you never know how close you are, keep pushing until you get there.
5. Hold On
However flimsy or unlikely the threads of hope are, follow them, they will lead you home.
I know it's hard... but it's worth it.
Good luck, Theseus.
