When it comes to large-scale cultural and social change, the actor and artist America Ferrera says that “our discomfort and our grappling is not a sign of failure; it’s a sign that we’re living at the edge of our imaginations.”
It requires tremendous social courage to remain in such uncomfortable, liminal space long enough to push through it. Old narratives need reinterpreting. New narratives need to be created and then adopted broadly. It can be frustrating at the level of the individual to remember that social transformation is not measured in years or political cycles, but in generations.
