A good life is measured not by what you have accumulated but by what you have done. Concentrating less on what you want for yourself and more on what you can do for others may be a first move out of the hole you have dug yourself into.
Shifting eyes away from the self and out onto the world may just be the thing to start you on a new and healthy journey of purpose and meaning. Because sometimes self-reflection leads to new inner discoveries of value and sometimes it leads only to self-pity.
Sometimes a shift away from the self is a catalyst to truly knowing the self in a new way. By learning how to truly relate to others on a deeper level you discover your own hidden virtues. And so do others. And that’s valuable!
