"People are strange: They are constantly angered by trivial things, but on a major matter like totally wasting their lives, they hardly seem to notice."
~ Charles Bukowski

It’s been said that there are two types of problems. Easy problems and hard problems. Hard problems are about making changes in your life and facing challenges head on in search of making things better. Growing oneself, true communication with another, improving or severing relationships, following your dreams, these are the hard problems. Easy problems include blame, addiction, avoidance, even some depression.

Basically, the hard problems are the ones where you have accepted that you are in the driver’s seat and that you must do the work to move your life and relationships in a positive direction.

The easy problems tend to allow for, or spring directly from, an avoidance of the hard problems.

Hmm. Well that gave me pause. In thinking about my own life I realize that I recognize the hard problems. But I covet the easy ones.
