"Being an activist is emotionally draining. Trying to get people into the same place on the same day can be like herding cats; People will argue with you constantly, and sometimes it feels like no matter what you do, you aren’t making a difference. Sometimes you wonder if it’s worth it to be in the movement anymore. This is normal and natural. Anyone who works long hours and sometimes doesn’t see results can relate. For activists, it can be even harder because it’s something we so fervently believe in that brings us so much exhaustion. This is why, like with all things, it’s important to remember that you always come first." (10/29/14)
