[Question] Resources around shame and striving and EA

For me, my EA-ness lives quite close to centres of shame and striving. It’s something I’m working through.

I doubt I’m the only one who feels this way.

What are the best resources you’ve read around this nexus of topics:
- A need to be better
- Altruism as a means to feel good about oneself/​ fill a hole left by shame/​guilt
- Guilt around doing things for yourself
- Fear that being satisfied would lead you to be less altruistic
- Stories of people who have grown or changed their minds on this issue

This isn’t a cry for help, I’ll be fine, I have people. It’s an honest request for resources. Hopefully it will be useful to others.
