Each of us had a problem. A problem that needs an immediate answer, a problem caused by our relatives or friends, and a problem that was left unnoticed until the need arises. What we consider as problems may vary in degrees. Loss of an estate could be very burdensome to an affluent family, but to families in the working class, estates are not really problems because in the first place, they did not have any. However, no matter how we categorize and recognize problems, the bottom line is simple: it is still a problem in need of a solution.
But how do we really solve a problem? Specific problems that may have put our state of being unstable? Specific problems that made us feel life is difficult, complicated and miserable? The solution is up to us, for only we can solve our problems through our desired solutions. However, problems should be analyzed carefully. It should not be taken easily for granted for the consequences of our decisions and actions may sometimes be miserable and much more, irreversible.
First and foremost, we must think carefully and reflect what the cause of the problem was. We must reflect in ourselves with honesty so that we may clearly know the root of our burden. Lying, especially to our very own selves will only worsen the situation, and make things much more complicated; therefore making it more difficult to find appropriate solutions to our problems. Asking for pieces of advice from relatives and friends could also help if you were still not sure on what to do. Sometimes we need to seek help from the people around us to broaden our minds. We are aware that it is our human nature to rely on relatives and friends whenever we encounter problems. We believe that they can bring a sense of enlightenment and they can help us in reflecting on the problem very well.

Having analyzed the problem, we must now think of the possible solutions. These solutions will help us make everything back into order, making things upright and stable. Evaluation of the possible solutions is also a factor in solving our specific problems. We must take into consideration every aspect affected, and carefully look at the different angles of the situation. William Arthur Ward once said that “it is wise to direct your anger towards problems–not people; to focus your energies on answers–not excuses.” This means that we should only focus on solving the problem, no matter how overwhelmed we are with our different emotions. As much as possible, we should choose the most appropriate solution to our problem, so that it will become the best for the common good. The truth even if it hurt sometimes, would always be good. Sometimes, the best solutions to the most severe problems may be least favorable for us.
Whenever we have problems, we should learn to control our life and not let it control us (Williams, 2001).
Being very much overwhelmed with our emotions when we have problems will hinder us from finding the best way out. We should learn not to treat a problem as a problem that we might overburden ourselves. Finally and above all, we must ask for the guidance of God. No matter how intelligent we are, we still need His help to recover and regain from the problems we have encountered (Williams, 2001).
He is our Creator and guide in every step of our way. Let us still bear in mind that God will always be there and He wants only the best for us (Williams, 2001).
