I’ve gone from involvement in one feminist organisation (my job) to three in a matter of days. I somehow managed to get myself on to the governing collective of a pretty damn rad women’s centre, and also a new group which I am part of has been launched: Mothers For Choice – pro-choice group formed to raise awareness of abortion decriminalisation campaign.
I really do love keeping up with political stuff going on around the place, as it wasn’t that long ago that I felt totally out of the loop, but I do need to find some space where I don’t have to stress about the state of our society, horrible legislation going through parliament, and the injustices that are done to people every. single. day. Because sometimes I feel that I will eventually have a breakdown and if I heard anything even remotely close to “government” or “patriarchy” then I’d spontaneously combust. Let’s not go there huh?
So I need to slowwwwwww down. And make sure I still find shit humourous. And not be a stress cadet about things that are beyond my control.
P.S. It’s not the involvement in groups that stresses me btw – just the fact that we are still in a place where they are needed. Now head along and see Mothers For Choice and become a fan of the facebook group. Good people.
