I’ve been feeling an increase in skepticism and an increase in overall energy for a while now… It usually hits around September and lasts through December before I crash a bit.
The weird thing is… This time people are agreeing with me. I’m connecting with more and more young people who are fed up with being deemed incompetent and too young to understand.
I watched the third movie of Hunger Games tonight and it struck me how we need to seek opportunity to demand changes.
We, as people who are at the will of the mental health system and organizations that claim to have our best interest in mind, need to rise to the challenge to achieve our self defined purpose.
This song: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=r-Oi43EsQNU really got me during the movie…. We need to inspire hope.
We need to ask of those who demand that we conform that – we’re equals right? As in we’re people. Yeah, we might be younger and less experienced. Yes, we may have less of an education, and haven’t attended as many meetings. Yet, at the end of the day, we are equals – right?
Because if we are really equals you would step back and think about that feeling that is boiling in your gut as being a response that has been programed to be there. If we were equals you would open your door and say come in and join me to understand what needs to happen next to achieve the best outcomes for all…
As I say f— you authority, you may have a response… “I am the boss, I am the leader, I am the person who has been entrusted to lead.” By who? The people? Who are the people that gave you this authority to decide what is best for me?
Are they the ones who have risen out of the ashes of a broken system to find grace and wisdom?
I have been feeling an increasing level of unrest lately and I haven’t been able to put my finger on it. It is clear that my unrest lies in a raising of consciousness.
My intention is to build partnerships with those who share in the mission to liberate those who have been systematically marginalized and deemed incompetent by the very system that uses their disability to justify expenses.
This is a compilation of a few pieces I wrote while being “stabilized” that I found related to the hunger games movie. It’s so weird how ideas come together sometimes…
