Dr. Karl Menninger, the famous psychiatrist, once gave a lecture on mental health, and then answered questions from the audience. “What would you advise a person to do,” asked one man, “if that person felt a nervous breakdown coming on?” Most people expected him to reply, “Consult a psychiatrist.”

To their astonishment, he replied, “Lock up your house, go across the railway tracks, find someone in need and do something to help that person.” The Key – Don’t sit and pout. Get up and do something!
