Believe me, if you see the folks that have little, you are very thankful for what you have, and are hesitant to "complain" about your own life situation.
"Give to others" in whatever manner you can. You will feel that you can make a difference, and there is no "price" you can put upon being "needed".
Oh, BTW, I also give blood (every 8 weeks) at my local blood bank. While I don't "see" the results, there was a recent "letter to the editior" in the local newspaper who thanked those who contributed blood (for their family needs). I sort of feel that it was written to me, directly.
Give service to others. While I didn't believe in this while I was wor*ing, I now understand that it gives a "payback" on a personal level.
