I spoke to my friends about my presentation last night and how it went horribly. The ones who were able to get their workplaces on board felt bad for me and the ones who had the same experience as I did knew exactly how I was feeling. I feel like my family doesn’t support what I’m passionate about and that they don’t care about the planet as much as they should. I actually feel less a part of the family than I have in my whole life. I’ve always been a bit different but I’ve always felt accepted, but not anymore.
I made the presentation so informative and easy to understand. I even told them of company that offers the best commercial solar energy solutions in the area to get everything sorted. I had done all the work, they just had to implement it… but they didn’t want to.
I’ve been so passionate about the planet for so long, trying to make sure that it is perfect for the generations to come. They’ve always known this. I don’t know why they wouldn’t want the same thing. If I can’t even convince my own parents to help save the planet then how am I going to be able to convince random people on the street to do something? I feel like I’ve failed.
My friends have all offered to help me out with my presentation. We’re going to do a presentation workshop where we all bring our props and slideshows together and use the best stuff from each one. One thing that I’ve already found out that I should have mentioned is that there is a government solar rebate for businesses who change to solar. That will be a big part of my next presentation.
I’m going to learn from this experience and even though I’m really upset, I’m not going to let it stop me from changing the world. The planet is too important to let this get in my way.
