Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes of course that is often the case, but I wanted to point out that there can be an exchange of 'happiness' that is deducted - for instance, one can easily give 10€ to charity, but what if you gave a 1000 or 10000 €, and your monthly salary is 3000. At some point there is a deduction.

When you decide on an amount to give, it is usually below that which feels like a deduction. And that 'amount' can be money, possessions, time and/or skills. I'm interested in how people find that point. How do you decide on the amount of time you put into volunteering? Is 40 hours a week too much? Is 10 hours too much? Because you are definitely making a decision, drawing a line.

You can't be me, I'm taken
