When doubt creeps in and faith falters, support makes people more resilient so they’re able to overcome setbacks and gain the confidence needed to work through challenges

I love that line!!

Societal change is difficult because it's so much easier to maintain the status quo - in other words it's hard, and oftentimes dangerous, work. But it's work that must be done if we are to build a just and equitable society.

Such a relevant article Susan. Change is never easy. Deep change can often challenge our most strongly held beliefs - those that play a part in defining who we are. It can take real courage to step away from what we have learned to be true or what those around us all seem to believe, especially when one has to do it without your fourth point - support. Thank you for illustrating the value in examining those beliefs from time to time.
