Dear Seagoat,

I have recently retired and am thoroughly enjoying my freedom—reading novels, playing and listening to music, going to movies, seeing friends…but with so much need and injustice in the world, I am feeling guilty for not doing more –to be honest, anything, to help. On the other hand, my whole career involved helping people and I feel like it should be okay to take a break—but apparently my conscience doesn’t agree. I’m afraid if I don’t start volunteering soon, I’ll get too comfortable with my self-indulgent lifestyle and will never get around to it. Any advice?
