How to really mess up your problem: with real life methods:

There are majorly two ways to really really mess up your problem. Any one of these is enough to make your life miserable.

  1. Denial of your problem:
  • The first step to actually start entangling your problem, is to deny that you have one. This thing, you can do when you just realise that you have a problem.

2. The victim mentality:

  • The second step, after you get into one problem, is blaming the outside circumstances for it. Remember, no outsider can be responsible for your inside chaos.
