Transcript Burning Out cont. atremble for sexist vibrations, to feel that one is required to attend all Feminists meetings-caucuses-projects is destructive to a woman's resiliency. In our expectations, we are defining Feminism in terms so narrow as to be devastating. Have we simply exchanged the ensnaring role of Super Mom and Super Wife for that of Super Sister? If so, no human gain has been made. And burning out is inevitable. Vie must remember that enthusiasm and vitality can survive only as long as we remain whole people, with privacy and quiet times allowed for regeneration of the spirit. We cry out for Woman- space, separate from patriarchal space. But we also need, each one of us, individual Womanspace for ourselves: growth space, thinking space, fantasizing space, private space, aloneness space, energizing space. How much or how often we require this is an individual matter to be determined by each woman herself, not by the demands of the group. If, on occasion, we need to stay home and write, or read a book, or simply relax instead of attending a meeting or organizing a Feminist function, we have that right without feeling guilty to the "cause." What are we working for if not for the right of each v/oman to be herself and develop her richest potential? If we do not wish to self-destruct, we must acknowledge-- with respect--the human factor. This is part of the process of nurturing by which the Movement will survive not just this year, but for the long years ahead. When v/e burn out, we are only a momentary flicker in the vast patriarchal darkness. When, fueled by our communal energy and commitment, we can burn steadily, we serve as the proverbial lamps in the window for countless other sisters who need that light for warmth and reassurance in this bleak and midnight world.
