WHAT THEY DON’T TELL YOU ABOUT WORKING TO CHANGE THE WORLD 

» Posted by on Apr 3, 2017 in WORKING | 11 comments

They say that change is coming. In this time, people are dreaming and making their best efforts to make a difference. And there is no other generation that has been more driven to improve the plight of others than the millennials. A lot of them have been pressured and are expected to bring change. Thousands of tireless and hardworking people have been in the business of bringing positive change to their country that badly needs it. There are no superheroes in our world, no spandex, no capes on the shoulders and no underwear worn outside. We no longer have to build and wield weapons to chase the bad guys around. But a big part of wanting to go down the path of changing the world is hidden and there are so much more than we can learn when we get on the ground and experiencing it for ourselves.

Working

These are some of the hidden truths and lessons about wanting to change the world or in the less glamorous words, about being humanitarian worker.

 

Change is boring unless you see the bigger picture

The life of a humanitarian worker is not always as glamorous as what we see in the news or in the social media. It’s not as photo-op worthy when we see Angelina Jolie hanging out with the refugees or Emma Watson making a speech about feminism in the United Nations. The work can be at times, boring just like any office jobs. Since most projects are planned, they take time to be developed and evaluated before they are actually put down and done on the ground. But once you go beyond the cumbersome process and see the end results, you’ll never bored again.

Change is expensive unless you’ve changed your relationship with money

There’s a misconception that once you do humanitarian work, you have entered yourself to a life of poverty. This is not entirely the case.  The case is that once you do humanitarian work and see what is happening, you will then realize and have an epiphany about what poverty and prosperity really mean. If you have dedicated yourself to the work you’ll learn to be less materialistic and to learn to live below your means.

Change is a hate-magnet but you’ll be fine if you know you’re fighting the good fight

Wanting to make a difference will get hate from a lot of people, especially if you promote issues about reproductive health and gender issues. Changing the world means changing the people’s behavior. Stopping crime, drugs, littering, corruption and poverty among others. These things will require a lot more than just one person’s effort.  Before we can change how people act, we first have to change not only how think but also their perceptions of what is acceptable and what is normal.

Change is slow

People are often resistant to new ideas, new ways of thinking, or new ways doing things especially if these contradict strongly held beliefs and long-lasting practices. Change is hard and it will definitely be slow.
