you have a sense of caring for others, you will manifest a kind
of inner strength in spite of your own difficult situations and
problems. With this strength, your problems will seem less significant
and bothersome. By going beyond your own problems and taking care
of others, you gain inner strength, self-confidence, courage, and
a greater sense of calm. This is a clear example of how one's way
of thinking can really make a difference."
