Wow, that is a loaded title!! I mean dang, but this idea and topic came from the conversation that formed under the article, ‘ 5 Defeating Actions Keeping You From Success‘. What a powerful conversation that was and a great way to bring the community together. Thank you to everyone who shared!
I noticed a majority of comments touched on the idea of not taking on other people’s problems. The messages ranged from having a hard time with this idea to completely seeing how it has changed lives, and others spoke about how they really want to implement this idea into their current life. I found this fascinating and was really moved by each one.

I am not sure about you, but this Summer has been packed full of work, events, exciting moments, and personal challenges. It is easy to feel overwhelmed by constant change, long lists of things to do, and commitments. I recently learned these three easy tricks to relieve some of that stress. Keep reading!
Not too long ago, I cared more about other people’s opinions, comfort, and well-being than my own. And it was stifling my career.
I developed this serious obsession with people pleasing. The idea was lodged in my head that I am not supposed to “take too much”, “ask too much”, and “make sure I don’t rock the boat”. I said yes to obligations because I truly didn’t know how to say no. My time was no longer mine. If this makes sense to you, keep reading…
A lot of times we’ve heard the phrase “Trust Your Gut Instincts”, that very quiet guiding voice directing your steps. This article isn’t about that voice. This article is about combating that really loud, obnoxious self-doubting, self-defeating voice that flares up every time we try something new.
I remember vividly my college professor telling the class, “tell your friends to stop calling you about their bad news”. It shocked me. First, because I didn’t know where it was coming from. Secondly, the thought of telling people I loved to stop coming to me with bad news horrified me.

What would happen if I didn’t help solve my friends and families problems? Even though I was unsure of the outcome, I slowly began implementing this rule over a few years. I was amazed what happened next.
February 22nd, 2007 I took a detour from my immaculately planned out life and confronted my darkest secrets head on. In turn, I changed the course of my life forever. It was the scariest moment going through it, but I am afraid where I would be now if I didn’t. Here is my story, and what happened ten years ago.
My last visit to the United Nations was incredibly impactful. I was invited to the Youth Marketplace on Social Innovations for Health & Wellbeing event. The morning panel was hosted at the United Nations by Every Women Every Child and in partnership with the Office of the President of the General Assembly. SDG Media Zone supported the conference and invited me to cover the important discussion on sustainability and gender equality. I was introduced to two organizations that really spoke to me and my interested in Gender Equality and Sustainable Living. Last week, I shared about She’s The First. Today I want to mention the powerful way WHYFARM is changing sustainable agriculture.
Two weeks ago, I was invited to the Youth Marketplace on Social Innovations for Health & Wellbeing event. The morning panel was hosted at the United Nations by Every Women Every Child and in partnership with the Office of the President of the General Assembly. SDG Media Zone supported the conference and invited me to cover the important discussion on sustainability and gender equality. Both topics I am extremely passionate about. Two of the organizations that resonated the most were Why Farm It and She’s The First. Today, I want to introduce the latter and ways we can all get involved in providing gender equality in the classroom.
