Too close to the fire.

When you face a problem, it can make you feel bad about yourself. Stupid, incompetent, maybe worthless. A problem needs to be identified for exactly what it is -- a problem. And, the process of trying to solve a challenging problem can be painful. Which can lead you to want to stop in your tracks. You know. Avoid, distract, or divert. What can you do about it? See it for what it is. The problem is the problem. It's not you. Life Is Fabulous!
