Just because you have problems or experiencing a rather difficult situation does not mean you put everything at a standstill in order to take care of the problem. I understand that we sometime may need to take time to think about the situation in order to put everything into perspective. This however does not mean that you should use this to evade everything else going on in life. Problems never cease to exist in life. Problems only get worse; we get better at solving problems. I believe that we play a part in creating the problems we experience. If you do not like the problems that you have then you actively do something to change your situation in order to encounter different problems. You cannot cease to have problems. Learn how to efficiently solve them.
