Facing our problems

" Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced."

We have little or no power to change some problems in our lives. An injury or illness leaves us with physical limitations, a dear friends moves away, a shift at our company limits our career advancement. It's tempting to become bitter, but facing the problem is far healthier.

When we face the problem, we may find there are some part of it we can change. Time and therapy help our injury and illness, a phone call with a friend result in scheduling a fun reunion, an honest chat with a supervisor reveals other opportunities for professional growth.

We will face our challenges head-on. It's only when we face them that we can see what we need to accept and what we can change.
