There are so many cliché’s about how giving back, doing charitable works, and thinking and doing for others will bring you happiness, satisfaction, and maybe even bring you out of a depression. As with most cliché’s, this one is generally true and I wish more people would heed the wisdom of “repairing the world” as it is often expressed in my religion.
While my writing and focus tends to be gender-biased, from the man’s point-of-view, I will assert that in this regard, “giving” is something that is inherent in both men’s and women’s DNA. Men, as we well know, have the “fix-it” thing built into them while women have the “nurturing” one wired into their DNA. Before you yell at your computer, I am again making a generalization as, of course, this does not apply to every man or woman.
