The act of self-giving is a personal power-releasing factor. (Chelle Thompson, editor and publisher)

Thompson continues: “When you become detached mentally from yourself and concentrate on helping other people with their difficulties, you will be able to cope with your own more effectively.” Many have found this counsel to be true. When we put others first, helping them cope with life, we discover that we are better able to handle our own troubles.

Praise be to . . . the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).
