How to Share Your Privilege and Help Other People

How to Share Your Privilege and Help Other People

by Lauren Maul | CULTURE |

Instead of feeling guilty about being born with advantages, you can use yours to aid somebody less fortunate.

If you are reading this, then congratulations, you have some sort of privilege! Whether it’s the privilege of being visually-able to see the words on the screen or the socio-economic privilege of having access to the Internet and some spare time on your hands, you’ve got it, baby! Now what are you gonna do with it?

Privilege—an advantage beyond your control—exists in many forms. Not being aware of the privileges you have is the biggest indication that you are privileged. But don’t fall into a shame spiral—feeling guilty or denying the fact that you have privilege doesn’t help anyone. You have it, so why not share it? Magically, sharing privilege doesn’t diminish your own privilege stash. So, let’s identify the privileges you have and figure out how you can share the advantages you have with others.
