It’s fairly common to hear the complaint,
“If only I didn’t have this problem!”
Here’s a secret: the soul loves problems!
Most of us came here to revel in problems,
they’re essential props for this living theater.
We expand in self-awareness by confronting
challenges of every kind; facing them is the way
we learn about who and what we really are,
and what kind of stuff we’re made of.
Running away from school doesn’t work —
life will keep returning us until we recognize
what efficient tools our problems are,
and how to properly use them.
