You may not believe it, but it's actually the truth. Research validates that generous people seldom have emotional and mental problems-at least they have fewer than most.
It seems that generous, loving people who are interested in others get their eyes off themselves. You know when we constantly focus on ourselves, our view is more and more drawn to our own weaknesses, our own frailties, our own failures.
Take a lesson from research please, and set your attention on people out there! Be generous to them; be grateful and loving to others. Not only will you feel better, but you'll make others feel better too.
Proverbs 11 in the Good Book says, "A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed." That was true then, and it's still true.
