Sometimes finding a solution is a lot easier than you think.
If you ever have a problem and, no matter what you try, you cannot seem to find its solution, do this simple thing and help will begin to come right away. Whether the problem is physical, mental, financial or imagined, it does not matter. Just do the following: Pick yourself up, go out of your house, and look for someone to help. It does not matter how you help the person, as long as you are somehow actively involved with helping others. When you do this simple thing, your own solution will come much sooner.
Why does this solution always help? Number one, when you have a problem and you sit at home alone doing nothing, you will spend your time worrying about the problem. Dwelling on a problem only makes it seem worse than it is. The more time you spend thinking about the problem, the more likely you will exaggerate it far beyond its actual reach. Worrying never solved anything. When you go out into the world, you have to take your attention off of your problems, at least enough to move around. This in itself is a big help.
Number two, when you go out and look for others in need, you will soon see that there are many, many people out there who are worse off than you. Realizing this helps to put your problem into its proper perspective. Then, as you get involved with actually helping others, and you see their suffering relieved, you will feel good that you were instrumental in helping to relieve a fellow human being’s pain. Feeling good is a natural result of helping others. This gives you a tremendous boost.
And finally, when you help others, Hashem looks down from Heaven and says, “Hey, there’s my friend going around helping other people. I like that. You know what? Since he is such a big help to My people, I am going to help him.” Then your problem begins to unravel right away. Try it. You will see for yourself that it really works.
