Jolie, who is raising her brood of kids with her fiance Brad Pitt, says that she stops worrying about her own problems when she
is travelling for her work with the United Nations. She says she passed through a period in her own life where she focused primarily on worrying about her own problems. However, now that she has seen the victims of wars firsthand and she has seen people in real need she has placed too much concern about her own problems aside.

Jolie's vivid description of the plight of war zone victims in real life has more of a dramatic impact than well done Hollywood movies dealing with wars. She says she has met people who don't even know where their parents are, or their children. And she has met people who don't have enough food. Jolie says these kind of tragic situations make her wake up in a moment and she begins to realize how fortunate she is and that her concerns are nothing in comparison.

Jolie has admitted that visiting people in war zones has made her a happier person reports She has shared her experiences and thoughts on this matter with Psychologies magazine. Jolie feels that people are not born evil and their personalities are shaped by the choices they choose to make in life. Her feeling that service to others creates a happier life should serve as an inspiration for others who are in a position to do so to spend some time helping those less fortunate than them.
