This may be a path you will find worth poking your head into:

Buddhist Belief Blog (from the comments) Wrote:Just as an aside, I was reading recently how happy most of the people living in the slums of India are. They have celebrations, they value their relationship and they enjoy their lives. If they just thought about how awful everything is, they would miss out on what is wonderful about life. I have read in some countries, which lack material goods, they pity us. They think we are disadvantaged because we let other people take care of our children and do not take care of our own elders.

So, what do we do when we see pain. I think that it is clear that, in Buddhism, the correct response is compassion. We strive to change what we can. We recognize that we can not change everything for everyone. We recognize that is the current condition of the world. We suffer and are in pain. They suffer and are in pain. Suffering because other people suffer doesn’t help them. Feeling compassion and recognizing that we are all in the same boat helps. Acting compassionately, to the best of our ability does help. That includes compassion toward ourselves.
