Are you the serious type who focuses too much on your problem,that you just can get enough sleep because who have to think so much of your problem and probably the best solutions? Or are you the type who easily recognize your problems, but then don't bother to ever think of it and just ignore it. You just let it flow and let the circumstances works for you? It's as if you just deal your problem as an opportunity or a block along the way? Or are you the type you just let it out to some one and then forget about the whole thing? However you view your problem, please share it to us? thanks and have a nice day posting.

Aaahh.. problems! :) As a typical IT person, i use logic and analysis to solve problems. Sort of having a program flow...complete with If then Else scenarios. :D However, there are problems that you have no control over, problems that cannot be solved no matter how much "logical thinking" you put into it. These, I lift to God. A wise man said, "When logic ends, faith begins...". So very true.

facing a problem is really hard at times. the way we face our problems depends on the person, that includes his/her views, how he/she take problems and how to cope with problems. in my case i am a person who would try to face my problems and have to solve it. it may be hard at the start but that's better compared to leaving it as it is as if it didn't happened. hope this helps.

I hate problems. the best way to solve it is not to make one. I'm not saying that you should avoid your problems when it's there but you can surely avoid them from happening if you are aware of the consequences of your actions. In some cases wherein it's unexpected, I don't really consider them as a problem but just an inconvenience that I will surely get through. Problems are opportunities sometimes, there's a reason why it existed in the first place. When it exists it means something has to be done and when it's done, it leaves us with a lesson that we can add up to our humbling experiences.

I am the first type you have mentioned as above. I am a quite serious person and always come up with negative ideas. If I am facing a problem,I will think until the worst part of the problem. As the result,I cannot sleep and eat well. I will keep on thinking about the problem. I always pray for no big deal happens to me. I am scare of problems. But luckily I have a boyfriend who is having totally different personality than me. He is a very positive thinking person. He just lets go all his problems and does not bother much about them. Slowly he will get solutions for all the problems. He is the one who always encourage me. I think we should always find someone who is having contrast personality than us. Lol.

I would like to think that I handle my problems pretty well! Whenever a problem has arisen I have always dealt with it immediately! If you have one problem show up and you don't deal with it, you will find that another problem will show and then another and then, you will eventually find yourself inundated with problems! I don't think this is the way to go. I will give one example! There are a lot of people in debt these days and I'm one of them! I lost my job and then my creditors started chasing me! I received those horrible letters and one after another, I dealt with them. I wrote letters of response immediately, I kept a record of how I was dealing with each problem and now, thankfully, I am starting to have some peace! A problem will never go away and will infact get worse if you don't face it eye to eye! Good luck in tackling your problems. Andrew

hi andrew, yes it is really true, we have to deal with our problems and face it. In all practicality no one really can move by running with their problems.We just have to take it strong enough and with faith in God, ask for wisdom to do so.I admire you for what you did with your problem, and for the courage to dealt with it accordingly.

I do deal with my problems head on, though I can worry sometimes and it effects my sleep. I don't believe obstacles disappear by ignoring them and so always try to deal with them and then move on.

Yes moving on is a big thing to do after all the odds. Anyway all problems leaves a mark with us. A character is always built after every problems solved. And if we keep on dealing with the same problem, maybe we haven't get the idea of building a specific character in us..thanks creative_genius for such a nice view..

Yes. I am very focussed on all problems that arise. It is only because I want to take care of them and put them behind me so I can move on to better things.

Problems is something hard to handle if it is too serious. Anyway, I handled my problem depending on what situations it goes. If it is light and easy that I can carry without much time I just let it passed and attended not much. But of course with solution to set off. If I know that my situation is too much hard and it's not just as light I used to go to my room think over it and trying to find some solutions with plan ABC... I will rest and have paused for a while to continue planning. But above all of this is my Almighty God who is my adviser in terms of my deep prayer and meditations. As well as I often go to our elders to seek some advices. I always say to myself "it will be alright, just relax God is there He will not abandon you and He loves you." This are the words that makes me to have peace on mind. I cannot make myself so serious for it seems the whole world may collapes.

I am a cool type but more analysing a problem and getting a better solution is always my aim and the disadv on my thought is that i think more of a problem rather than on light side. so it takes me more time to decide and creeps in for lots of time

Im a type of person that when ever a problem comes, i deal and find solutions of it. i would think about its source.I realize all of my problems comes with my decisions, this is the consequences i got when i decide a thing in the past. for example today i have a problem in money, lots of dues to pay, i realize i had this problem because i have not spend my money wisely. i have realize i spend to much out of my income. it give me a headache. im slave of debt. 10 yrs ago i have a 2 credit cards, i go to the grocery shopping for our family, im single but i have to spend money for my family to pay light bill and food. i spend 3thousand pesos on grocery every month not realizing that i received only 2 thousand of my salary, 2thousand is my net salary.

thanks zenaids. I guess that realization will give you enough wisdom to solve your problem. Most people now a days have trouble with their finances. And I am not exempted to it. Credit Card and loans not properly utilized will surely give us enough head aches and discomfort. I just hope we can let go of our debts and be financially free again.. Wish us luck though.. have a nice day..Smile

There are times when I focus on my problems and what it means for my life. But lately I have been praying more about my problems and making sure I don't let it rule my life at times. I know we need to deal with problems, but we cannot let it overcome our lives.

whenever i have problem i usually do is just chill for a while, go out with my friends and drink to forget about it.. but most of the time i always go on the roof everynight and look for the stars and start to think about my problem on how im gunna do , or how im gunna solve it but what i cant avoid to do is crying whenever i have problems ...and try to talk my friends and ask for their advice ...but il always get over all my problems..coz i believe in saying that "god always have a purpose ...and theres no problem that we cannot solve thats why he gave it to us.."

If I have a problem, I will tell to myself that the problem can be solved and if I cannot solved it I will tell to myself that I already make a try so for me just let go. It would be easy if you not too think about something that you cannot change it.

For me handling problem is not easy as like singing the song that is need to memorize. And it will depend on what kind of problem do we have. If it is too serious I need to focus on it and try to find some solutions as soon as possible. Because the pressure it brings my heart feel like to thrown away. But I know there is God who always help me. At first I ask Him to guide and help me to get out of my trouble and find me the way to solve my problem for it makes me feel sick. You know friend I really hate complicated problems but sometimes what you hate it comes. If the problems I encounter is light or simple and it can be fix in hour I give my patience to handle it good. Trying to sing a song while doing what is necessary to do. The big letter of handling good our problem and think in proper way is Relax first and got one big inhale and let the Lord be our guide.

hi grace i think the life is full of challanges and you will win then , when you have ability to face the problems and not only to face but to be a good person you will to solve these problems . and if you feel to solve these problems then u=you will be in great trouble. me personnally used to solve the problem in such style. when i faced some trouble , then first check the causes that why the problem occur , then think about the solution and if i think that is will be the best option to solve then carry on the plane and solve it. i am not like that who just go for a dicision in such style that they think the may be there will be a way to solve it in the future.

Hi Gravetreyes, that's a great question! I remember hearing once that once we deal with our big problems, that all our little problems become bigger. There is a lot of truth in this and it's all related to how busy you are. Somebody did something nasty to me last Monday and I can tell you that a year ago, it would have hurt a lot and that I would have had lots of sleepless nights, just as you wrote in your discussion. However, I am very busy at the moment and there are so many positive things going on in my life that I just wrote this bad thing off and have actually managed to see it as a good thing. All the best.

Well I used to deal with my problems quite easily. But since I have been sick they can become night mares to deal with and I need my partners help sometimes. My illness does not affect my intellect but it affects the ability of my mind to work so I panic first and then calm down and sort things out. Once I never panicked at all. Now I have to deal with a problem very carefully, one point at a time and it works itself out.
