If you wish to feel good, do some good. Do some good, not for show, not for credit, not to get one up on anyone, but just because it is good and right.
Even if no one ever knows about it except you, that's enough. Do some good, just because you have the opportunity, just because you can.
Make the situation better, and it makes you better. Use your strength to create a positive difference, and you grow even stronger.
Real, lasting fulfillment comes not from what you get, but from what you contribute. Make a positive impact on life, and feel how great it feels.
If you spend your time obsessed with what's in it for you, there will end up being nothing in it for you. Do some good, and it will most certainly be good for you.
Whether life is going great for you or whether it is not so great at all, do some good. Do some good, and feel the priceless satisfaction of making life better for everyone.
