If you spend your energy helping someone else, by cheering up someone else, you may give them hope, and, you actually minimize and lighten some of your own burdens.
You’ll feel a lot better when you share your happiness with someone else. You will find that you may still be faced with an issue but it will not be consuming all of your thoughts.
By helping others , by taking that break from your own problems you may find that a solution will appear in your mind.
Sometimes when we take a break we may find that solutions then present themselves. We get so focus on our problem that we actually can’t see beyond it. It is like doing a puzzle, all the pieces are there but because we sat and stared at it for so long we can’t find that one piece we are looking for. But just getting up and going for a walk and then coming back to the puzzle we end up seeing the missing piece.
Sometimes too much focus can actually hinder us from finding the answer.
