Your ability to be benevolent to others in assisting them to meet their goals grows exponentially when you extend yourself after you have taken care of your needs. It is difficult to extend yourself if you are exhausted or feel overwhelmed by the number of obligations still left on your to-do list.
Benevolence characterizes the true goodness of the mind and spirit, the unbiased kindness to do good. It confers thought and regard for the welfare of other people, and finds expression in sympathy and kindly gentleness and compassion, with charitableness and kindness. It is the expression of agape love (Greek--unconditional love). Source: Wikipedia encyclopedia
