Magnifying the problem, rather than looking for a solution

“Human nature always wants to sort things out, to get what we regard as ours, to have the last word and so on.  If we need money we run around begging and borrowing, some even steal.  If it’s a relationship problem we seek support and validation from others, forcing friends and family to take sides.

The only thing that all this running around does is to exacerbate the problem and exasperate everyone concerned.  In other words, we magnify the problem rather than look for a solution.”
