Problems

Some things are better off ignored than attacked. Attention is the oxygen of conflict. When you fight the problem, you breathe into it. When you starve a problem of your attention, you suffocate it. In a surprising number of cases, the way to solve the problem is to ignore it.

James Clear

Discernment is so critical.

Like fire, some naturally die out on their own especially if in a fire pit or other contained area while others might kill and do serious harm left unintended. Perhaps burn the house down or wipe out a whole forest.

Too bad most aren’t like the fire in my gas grill. Knowing the difference is key. Shutting the lid or thowing a wet or fire blanket takes care of most with a quick glance now and then to confirm.
