As a child, I never thought about whether I would eventually take on my parents’ approach to problem solving, but it’s easy to see how we would.
As the years rolled on and I became the adult, I knew I had to find a different approach because their approach didn’t work. They seemed constantly stressed, more anxious, more irritable, they worried about everything. Their minds were never still.
Perhaps, therefore we need to work with and understand ourselves first. How we think, how we feel, what makes us, us. The more we become aware of just how we work, the more we can become settled in ourselves.
I also believe the more we come to understand our lives, the more we will learn how to sort our problems out. We need to get to know ourselves more, both on the inside and out.
