Wow, thanks for your incredibly detailed response. As much as I want to, I don't think I could fully attain as healthy an outlook as that. I've always just been someone that wants to make people happy, even if they are jerks to me/others. A happy person is a happy person, right? I don't care that much about being recognised as the source of their happiness though, an attitude which would probably cause quite a lot of distress. I'm also pretty fond of the idea of making an impact on society, but maybe that's just because I'm young.
As someone who has recently been/is being parented, I think what you're working to show your daughter will be quite valuable, and I would certainly appreciate it when I'm older in her position. :)
