MOTM 578: Are You Worried About Getting Cancelled?

Thursday, May 9th, 2024

I see people who I know have something important to say hold themselves back for fear of being “cancelled,” whatever that means. Look, I don’t subscribe to “cancel culture” and I don’t think it exists, but it’s robbing people of their ability to think critically and compassionately and it’s preventing too many people from even trying. We’ll never fix the system we’re in by re-writing it. The only solution is to build a new model, one built on growth, equity, and understanding. We build that new system by having the courage to use our voices to contribute to the discussions we feel called to be a part of, regardless of the fear we may be “canceled.” 

Let’s chat.
