Their cousins


The problem with problems is they’re all just a little bit different. It’s easy to take them all at face value, as a thing to be solved, and as soon as they’re solved to move on to something new. The real problem with treating problems like this, failing to spot the patterns.

Another problems with problems is treating them like you know what they are before you know for sure; the old … to a man with a hammer everything looks like a nail … kind of issue. So the problem there is fitting everything into a single pattern.

For ease of reference: there is no one-size fits all diagnosis, nor are they all separate and divisible from their cousins.

They’re little family trees. Each unique and deserving of individual attention, but each coming from a place that benefits from parental control.

Skippy strategy: Deal with the issue and with the cause.
