This may not actually be a One Liner, but let it be my Christmas gift to you!
“When you’re lonely, visit an elderly neighbour.
When you’re scared, help someone else be brave.
When you’re stuck, encourage someone else to take a small step.
When you’re depressed, make someone else smile.
When you’re defeated, cheer on a family member.
When your heart is broken, help a friend mend theirs.
And when things are going smoothly and unfolding the way you want, be grateful and bring someone else along with you”

Thanks, GM. The best way to cheer ourselves up is to cheer someone else up.
Yes, Nancy, when helping others we forget our own woes and actually appreciate how well off we are.
When YOU are the elderly neighbor, go visit someone.
Great. Now if I can just remember these things.
Copy, paste and print it to stick on your fridge!
