There should be no limit to how much a person can push in the right direction.
There is no such thing as freedom until the basics of life are free.

Very few leaders are complete without their counsellors because to be lost is to be human.
Society wants to make it seem like a man is supposed to be completely independent right away and instantly know exactly what to do. All that this has resulted in is a society of perfected means but no aims whatsoever and shows that most men (and perhaps most people) are better at accomplishing tasks with absolutely no clue why they are doing them.
Keep one eye on decency while focusing on your life.
That’s it. That’s all a person really has to do in my opinion. Anyone who wants to be more sacrificial (on a genuine level) is more than welcome (and such sacrifices are commendable,) but I think the above idea is already more than fair, especially because it doesn’t involve exploiting others in the name of “helping” them.
I genuinely hope people never come to see me as an authority on anything.
People tend to think “if it’s simple, it’s wrong.” This has led to an enormous bulk of humanity’s problems including the bursting of the American housing bubble in 2008, in my opinion.
