Throughout our lives each of us is confronted with a myriad of problems. I believe the way people cope with their problems determines how successful their lives will be.
Many people try to find someone else to blame for their problems. The Arabs and many others have been blaming the Jews for all of the world’s ills for centuries. This creates a life-long enmity and gives a false sense of accomplishment, but it practically guarantees that nothing further will be done to solve the problem, and if conflict ensues there will be more problems.
Then there are those who believe politicians or others who promise to solve their problems. This never works either. There is only one person who can solve your problems. He or she is the person you see in the mirror, or perhaps it would be more appropriate to say the person you see in your selfies. Of course you might need help from others, but if you expect someone else to solve your problems for you, you’re going to be disappointed.
Got a problem? Do something to deal with it. Even if you don’t find a solution immediately you’ll feel better because you’re taking control.
“Whatever is begun in anger ends in shame.” — Benjamin Franklin
