Live your life and allow other people live theirs. Whatever others do with their lives is their problem and beyond your control. Even if a person is physically blocking your path, you can always go around them and not waste your energy.
Don’t rally, don’t organize, don’t protest. If change is what you want then there is no more effective way to do it than through yourself; through your work and through your own example. The way you live your life is how you change the world. If your change is good then people will naturally be drawn to it.
People will change when they want to change; society will change when it’s ready to change. Forcing others to change through things like government is one of the most ineffective ways to create change. You need to rally people, you need to rely on politicians, and if you “win,” you then have to defend the change, and if you lose, you stay stuck “fighting” for change. But why force anyone? If your change is good then live it, be the first one to enjoy its benefits, lead the way so that we can all realize our errors. If you need to force others to change so you can “finally” live your life, then perhaps your change isn’t that great; chances are that you’re not even living it and that you’re just being a hypocrite.
To change you only need yourself. You can always figure out a way to live your life without the need to change others. There is no need to rally or to rely on anyone; there is no law to fight for or against; you only need yourself. All other paths are avoidance and wasteful, unless your true calling is to run for public office and actually do something about it. Stop half-assing things; do or don’t.
There is no more effective way to live your life than to live it and to let live.
