Ignoring the problem does not make it go way.

In fact, the problem may grow and intensify.



I believe all of us have challenges, small or large, and sometimes these problems persist for a very long time. In fact, some people ignore the problem and just accept it as it is and hope one day it will go away. Ignoring a problem does not make it go away. In fact, the problem may grow and intensify creating and worsening the situation.  The best thing to do is try and fix the problem.

Running from one place to another will not fix the problem. Moving from one relationship to another may not fix the problem, especially if the problem is you. Moving from one job to another will not fix the problem.

Do not ignore the problem with your health.

Some of you may have health issues. You know you are not feeling well but you don’t do anything about it. You keep it to yourself, or you don’t consult with a medical practitioner. When you ignore the issues with your health, it can complicate and impact other issues with your health.

Do not ignore the problem with your mental state.

You may feel like you are losing your mind, or you are not in your right state of mind. You are thinking about things you should not be thinking about. Do not take this for granted. Do not ignore this. If you do not do anything about it, you may act on what you are thinking, creating further problems.

Do not ignore your addiction.

Some of you may be addicted to something. Whatever your addiction is, do not ignore it.

Do not ignore your relationship problems.

You may be experiencing problems in your relationship with your family and friends, and you simply ignore it. For some of you who are thinking about committing to a long term relationship, don’t have the mentality that if you get married, it will go away. If you ignore it and don’t fix it, this can lead to bitterness, envy and animosity and the loss of relationship.

Do not ignore your financial issues.

One of the greatest stresses one can experience is financial issues. Do not ignore your financial condition. Get help.

Do not ignore the signs in your children.

Some of you may see some signs in your children from when they were young. Do not ignore them thinking as the children grow up, whatever they are facing will go away.

Do not ignore the issues on the job.

A lot of workplaces have issues. Sometimes they are ignored and make the workplace toxic or unpleasant.

Deal with your baggage.

Some of you have a lot of baggage and you ignore them, but they do not go away. You may have been abused or suffering from other issues. Ignoring them will not make them go away. Deal twih them otherwise you may pass some of that to your children or carry it in your relationship.

How to deal with your problems

Whatever your problems are, you must first identify and admit there is a problem. Too many times we are in denial about our situations.

After you have identified your problem, get the necessary help. Confront the situation and deal with it.


No matter how you try to ignore the problem, it will not go away because you will always be thinking about the problem because subconsciously it will be on your mind. Therefore, don’t go on living your life ignoring your problems.
