    This is exactly how I feel. Even if there is zero chance of you affecting anything (which is clearly not true), I still wouldn’t feel fulfilled with at least trying.

      Yeah, I feel the same way. Sowing the seeds of wisdom, so our grandchildren can taste their fruits.

      Totally, and sometimes i think it’s useless but if i dont do that what else am i going to do? It simply is what i feel like doing

      Sure, agreed. However, make sure you’re happy. If there’s 0% chance of change, and if you’re happy not trying, then it doesn’t matter. If there’s 0% chance of change, and if you’re happy trying, then it doesn’t matter. Just be happy with whatever you do, and don’t worry too much if you can or can’t change the way things are. The way things are might simply be a grand and complex illusion, so it seems sensible to prioritise happiness.

    You can change the world by doing small acts of kindness everyday which then go on to impact the recipient who will also do the same.
