If you do what you've always done,
you'll get what you've always got ... 

So, you think, "I have a problem"

Experience, education, and life exposure can help build our resources for problem solving skills, but sometimes we encounter problems which are more difficult - many of which can lead to personal conflict and even depression.

Your concerns, trials, tribulations - all your troubles can be turned into opportunities. All problems are opportunities to grow. All pain is a forewarning of such necessity to change your outlook on yourself - and life.

Many times people have not been trained in the process of  problem solving or conflict resolution. Parents may have failed to teach these skills. Some problems can be elusive, transitional, and very unique. A very worrisome situation for you, may not be considered a problem for others.

If you have ever been plagued by an emotional conflict or depression over a period of time and had a friend tell you to "just get over it", you can sense there is a difference.

This type of advice is usually given by someone who is  either not bothered by the type of situation or emotion you have conveyed to them, or they simply don't understand. You can in fact "get over it" but not until you find the resolution which fits best for you.
