Angelina Jolie feels happy by helping others
Angelina Jolie feels happy by helping others. This is because when she does work with the United Nations, it make her to sop worrying about her own problems and appreciate more the things she has.
She said, "I'd been through a period where I was more concerned with my own problems and pain. Then I travelled to places where there were landmine victims, I went to my first war zone, to places where you see people in real need."
"You meet people who don't even know where their parents are, or their children, and they haven't got enough food. And you wake up in a moment, you realise how fortunate you are that your concerns are nothing in comparison."
"You don't worry about yourself, you worry about other people and you just grow up. It helped me get out of my own head. And it's a happier life. To be of service to others creates a happier life."
"We have a choice about how we take what happens to us in our life and whether or not we allow it to turn us." "We can become consumed by hate and darkness, or we're able to regain our humanity somehow, or come to terms with things and learn something about ourselves."
