Good Thursday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: Ignoring a problem gives it room to grow into a BIGGER problem. Since no one is perfect, everyone has problems they wish would go away. Some try sweeping them under the rug, some try wishing them away, some try numbing them with drugs, alcohol or food, and some run away. None of these methods fix the problem and most of them cause a bigger problem. Problems are opportunities to understand, reach out, gain self-awareness, and get well. If you avoid the problem you get sicker, number, and more isolated until you no longer recognize yourself. The problem is not the real problem, it’s a symptom of something bigger that has to be dealt with. Quit running, sit still and deal with the issues underneath the problem.
