"As we put more rigorous pressure on ourselves to succeed materially, we begin to loose our sense of the collective. Yet to loose such perspective can be remarkably damaging in a world where our choices have consequences on the lives of others less fortunate than we are."
Hopefully you won't lose control of your loose bowels, too.
Grammar checker != spell checker.
