Have you ever found yourself proud of all the good things you intend to do? I know I have.
I’m pretty good at fooling myself into thinking that there’s some virtue in
identifying the benevolence people need from me
or the difference this world needs me to make,
and that I’m even more virtuous
when I actually have the feelings of wanting to do it.
“I bet most people haven’t even thought about doing all the great stuff I’m thinking about doing.
I’m really something special.”
Wow, that’s lame.
Could it be that I’m proud of my intention so I don’t have to be ashamed of my inaction?
