Angelina Jolie has revealed visiting people in war zones has made her happier. The 38-year-old actress, who raises children Maddox , 12, Pax, 10, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, eight, and five-year-old Knox and Vivienne with fiance Brad Pitt, said the travelling she does in her work with the United Nations has stopped her worrying about her own problems and made her appreciate the things she has, reported Contactmusic.
“I’d been through a period where I was more concerned with my own problems and pain. Then I travelled to places where there were landmine victims, I went to my first war zone, to places where you see people in real need.
“You meet people who don’t even know where their parents are, or their children, and they haven’t got enough food. And you wake up in a moment, you realise how fortunate you are that your concerns are nothing in comparison. You don’t worry about yourself, you worry about other people and you just grow
up. It helped me get out of my own head. And it’s a happier life. To be of service to others creates a happier life,” she said.
