Brie Larson wants to change the world, and she just shared the most inspiring message to help us all do it together
In November of 2016, it felt like the light of America dimmed just a little bit. That less than welcomed change, coupled with an increase in natural disasters — from hurricanes to wildfires — and the struggles faced by marginalized communities worldwide, make it hard to remain hopeful. But Brie Larson has an inspiring message, and we’re definitely listening.
With being a celebrity comes many adoring fans and maybe a couple “haters” but perhaps the most important thing that comes with being in the public’s eye is a giant platform. It’s one Brie Larson has put to use before, sparking conversations about sexism, harrassment, and Hollywood. And now she’s doing it again on her newest Instagram.
Brie Larson wants to change the world, and we’re so with her.
The Short Term 12 actress posted this adorable photo of herself and her pup to Instagram, with a message we think everyone needs to hear.
Brie highlighted many of the recent issues plaguing America and other countries around the world.
She pointed out how learning of disasters and traumatic incidents stick with us, and how this has started to feel like our new normal. With every news cycle, or every time we open our social media apps, we’re reminded that people need help and the world needs real change. She went on to thank her fans for their support and their commitment to making the word a better place. And shared what she described as a “deep responsibility for the well being of all who enter my life…”
“I want to be part of change, big change. I wake up and want to change the world. In me is a deep responsibility for the well being of all who enter my life, including yours. I’ve been so lucky to fight for the right to be an artist. To be able to communicate with you. Thank you.
Brie Larson also highlighted the importance of self-care.
Because it can be so easy to forget to love on ourselves while trying to help those around us.
“I see so many of you devoted to making change as well. You are using your voice, and action to ensure the equality of all. I just wanted to take the time to say thank you. I’m grateful to exist with you. I hope you are taking care of yourself with as much thought and care you are putting towards others.
Larson closed by pointing out the importance of sticking together. #resist
"There will be ups and downs, but in the face of opposition, I hope you refrain from hardening. Let’s stay vulnerable. Lets be open to not having all the answers, but a willingness to learn. Let’s continue to get back up after being knocked down. And let’s do it together. I’ll help you and you’ll help me. There is still a whole lot of love in this world. Let’s not forget to pour our hearts into places that return the love we are so generously spreading. Let’s stick together."
We honestly couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Brie’s message of hope and unity is exactly what we needed today.
