Dangerous Compassions

what stops change

Hey, there was a meme I was dissatisfied by, so I had some commentary, made a list of my own, of what stops change, in my life.

I realized it would make a terrible meme because it was too much.  Then I realized there were factors inside me and outside me.  So I thought I could make an art, to show the factors inside and outside me.


Could be depressing, but I was happy to make it, and see these things clear in front of me.  I hope you don’t find it too much of a downer, reader.

In a way, I can do anything.  I’d like to be invincible, unstoppable–golden Laura-Marie, powerful as the sun.  In a way, I have a lot of factors against me.  What can we control–what can we not control.

What would your list look like?  Do you want change?

I used to be terrified of change.  Now I like it.  I understand the plant that isn’t growing is probably dying.  If we need to keep changing to live, I want to try to direct the change and make sure it corresponds with my values.

I want to make one also about what helps change.

Here’s the original meme, which is commentary on a “pull yourself up by your own bootstraps” self-sufficiency idea.  I guess I revised the revision!  So there you go.

Good at listening to the noise until it makes sense.
