I know what causes it. At least, I know a cause… fixing it is harder. What if you can’t fix the root of a problem, and the only way to alleviate the symptoms is to ignore the situation, to cause an “ignorance is bliss” scenario? Is this any good? The problem doesn’t really get better, sometimes it might get worse, but there’s nothing you can seem to do about it anyway.

This is why people repress things… feelings, memories… because if you can’t fix a problem, your only recourse seems to be to run away in your mind to hide. Ignore it, forget about it, hope it doesn’t rear it’s ugly head again.

It will. It always does. Until the problem is solved it keeps coming back and bugging you. Maybe it’s getting worse. Maybe you’re imagining it getting worse. Maybe it doesn’t matter because you can’t ever totally forget about it and it still lingers and bothers you when you don’t realize it, even if it hasn’t come knocking at your door lately.

What if you can’t solve the problem?
