Everybody has problems. Even the richest guy in the world has problems. That’s because we, as human beings, are insatiable and has unlimited wants. It’s just a matter ofwhat you do about those problems that sets you apart form other people. Even when I was little, I was taught that quitters always lose, and winners always persevere. Once you succumb to the weight of your problem and start feeling sorry for yourself, you lose. As a quote from The Kite Runner says, “…quitting is right up there with pissing in the Girl Scouts’ lemonade jar.”
Aside from solving the main problem itself, the most basic way we deal with problems is by the use of our coping mechanisms. These coping mechanisms are uses to overcome adversity, disadvantage or disability, without eliminating the cause of the problem. This occurs naturally and may help or harm us, depending on our reaction to a specific problem.
