Much less givin' while I'm workin' for a livin'

I've been feeling guilty lately, and for no good reason.

Social media shows me friends who are retired or self-employed and very busy going to protests and community meetings. It also shows me friends who have hit some very hard times and set up GoFundMe accounts. Some of these people are the same.

Do I help? Sometimes. When I can. Very often the protests and meetings are scheduled for midday, mid-week, which automatically cuts me out. I work full-time, with income variations that are strongly dependent on overtime.
