Delight in positive thoughts ~ 17th Karmapa

If you know that you harbor within you kind thoughts and goodhearted feelings, that itself can be enough. If you lose heart just because no one else sees it, this is a sign you yourself do not truly appreciate the value of your positive thoughts and feelings. You need to delight in them yourself, and be heartened by their presence within you. You can actively appreciate them and feel that they make your existence meaningful. You more than anyone else have the resources to warm yourself from within.
