The more you think about your own self

The more you think about your own self, the more self-centered you are, the more trouble even small problems can create in your mind. The stronger your sense of ‘I’, the narrower your thinking becomes. Then even small troubles become unbearable, like seeing a small spider and reacting like it is the Loch Ness monster! On the other hand, if you concern yourself mainly with others, the broader your thinking becomes, and life’s inevitable difficulties disturb you less. So please cultivate humility.
