Anonymous said: Is it possible to remove sadness from yourself by encouraging or making other people feel better?
Depends what you mean by encourage. If you mean encourage by telling other sad people to be happier, then no. If you meant encourage as in listening to their problems and helping them open up and be someone who they can feel understands, then yes.
When you help others feel better and you listen to their problems, you feel that you’ve done something good; it feels good to know that you helped someone else feel good.
