Sometimes, the best advice are kinda creepy and scary if you think deeply of it. There is some advice that if you are feeling miserable, look into others and find what troubles them and what suffering they are experiencing. I think this is kinda immoral. Just imagine, that you are now have most thing that disabled people don’t have, and be grateful for what you have just because you can see that other people are more miserable than we are. The advice often said, “Look down and you will be grateful”
I remembered a story between Beowulf vs Dragon. It’s a old poem which describes how Beowulf, the hero, killed monsters and ultimately kill a dragon.
By learning about Beowulf story, I realize that Heroism , which describes as a person who brave and have characteristics to take risks even on his life, is nothing more than a personal journey. Not altruism.

My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends–
It gives a lovely light!
