Problems are a sign of life. When we have problems, it indicates we are experiencing new or unfamiliar things in life.
Problems may also be an invitation for us to address certain things. While experiencing problems, it can be uncomfortable, stressful and emotionally draining, which is why we prefer not to have too many problems.
We all deal with problems differently and sometimes the way we try to solve them may create new problems.
The ability to assess and solve problems is a critical skill we must develop in order to adequately cope with the new demands put on us, and to continuously move toward the things that are important to us.
