care.

The last thing you want to do when you’re in pain is care about someone else’s pain. Yet, there is something wonderful that occurs when you reach out to help someone else, even when you need help. There is a scripture in the Bible that says this:

. . . he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. Proverbs 11:5

I think when we are really hurting, there are very few distractions. We notice others more easily. There is a connection. And when we care for others despite our own pain, we are comforted ourselves.
