I'm very socially conscious and very "woke" or whatever. I know a lot of nasty facts about life, society, etc. I think about it a lot, and it makes me miserable. Nothing really alleviates that misery. Not being an annoying advocate online, not being an irl advocate, not spending more than I can afford on good charities, not volunteering, not lifestyle changes or careful consuming, NOTHING.

So I've been trying to just not give a fuck, and doing pretty well. I still have the same opinions, I just prioritize other things, usually bullshit constructs I've been trained to like, and worry about myself first. It's making me happier, but I still feel guilty.

Anyone who has been through similar have advice? Am I doing the best thing? Am I a horrible sell out?

I mean, that's fine. If you do what you can when you can, there's no problem. If you feel guilty, that's because you know what's right. But as long as you take a few seconds every now and then to do it, you should get rid of that feeling eventually.

You have a messiah complex.

The way to live a good life: Live simply. Do good to those around you. Avoid doing bad. Lead others setting an example with your actions, rather than with rhetoric. Let the good be good and the bad be bad. Do not worry about saving the world, and focus on being a good person.

Whenever one form of suffering has been conqured, another will replace it. This is the law of the universe.

Listen to Alan Watts. He's had those same thoughts you are experiencing.
