The first question should be what the goal is.
The feeling of all humans to be happy in average at all, all live forms, only you?
To have the maximum of happiness minus negative feelings?
The system forces humans to cause a lot of damage, so besides suicide there can be the question how much you could prevent it and put out a positive
change balancing or overweighting it. Longer change for multiple generations is also more significant than a temporary momentary change.
So you give someone in a place where he should not be able to survive, food, but that makes his family replicate. Life is long (in this case) and
people usually some day cannot resist. People want school where never was one, you donate, some of the kids are happy, but is that really positive in
the long term for all?
Forgiveness is often more positive for all these possible goals than revenge, but think about this:
Someone who possibly had intended to cause damage for his own good or doesn't take many precautions to protect others who is not being harmed back
would have an open exploit to abuse. Sadly, even though people usually do this and even harm back more than is caused, especially the selfish ones do
not notice they are harmed back and given less for their own actions. So which of your actions in combination of likeliness of each case and possible
magnitude of influence is chosen depends on your wisdom.
But since your mind does not necessarily have enough energy for specific deeper thoughts for better decisions, it is the question about if you define
good as bad as fault or by your influence.
As everything you do is defined by your past and situation, you cannot be at fault for anything. However! This does not mean to give up improvement
either. You are still the one who influences the future by choice.
Now if you would say your senses are everywhere where senses are, just not connected to the position, this brain which asked this here, you either
create heaven or hell by positive or negative change. That's where you would be in.
Instantly switching your feeling to another body instead? Then all influences reach you in the future somehow, but less directly.
There is also karma, for example when you do positive change, wise people modify you slightly to appear better to others, so you are later helped back
Then there's the definition question about whether the mere good intention counts and if intention used on claims of what would be good
