The point of differentiation is to not make an effort to comfort people. When one does, these things happen:

1. The person being comforted feels pressured to feel better,
2. The comforting person takes their not feeling better personally,
3. The person being comforted gets the subconscious implication that they themselves are incapable of soothing their own anxiety, which further hinders the self-healing process.
4. Also, if one expects others to sooth them, others would have the power to withdraw in face of adversities.
