Now to balance this anti-abrahamism out the truth is that you will be happier serving the interests of others than any other pursuit in life. It’s just true. Sorry. There are very few of us who are wired oddly enough to live happily alone without succumbing to it.

Random acts of kindness. Deliberate acts of charity (service). Resistance of the political. Deliberate contribution to kin.

These are the things that will make you happy.

But do not ask for acknowledgement in return.

That is the the dark side of charity.

It isn’t charity if you want appreciation.

It comes with time.
