I remember telling a friend many years ago when he saw me pull [...]

What do YOU do to change the world?

I was having a conversation with a friend earlier today and a form of this question came up.  We started talking about the choices we make which often result in feelings of frustration and aggravation, mostly at ourselves.  We realized we make these choices ourselves. Why?  Guilt.  The thought that of, “If not me, then [...]
