sometimes the best way to get rid of your troubles is to focus on someone elses… by helping someone you can forget about what is bothering you at this very moment and focus on what is bothering someone else…. this is a win – win situation. they get much needed help and you get to forget about what was bothering you… this culture has many t.v. show of navel gazing, self obsessed, troglodites as the main characture… to be a star you have to want to be the center of the solar system… with planets revolving around you.. so by its very nature you can get sucked into your own head and if you measure your head it is only 6 inches across. A very small place. That can be very confining.
