Or you can solve a problem by pretending there is no problem.
This seems to work for most people.

Until the problem grows and it can’t be ignored. Life has a way of slapping you in the face when you try and ignore it.

If you remove the one who sees it as a problem, then all there is is a response. Response-ability. Not responsibility. Even if this one can’t be removed if it is seen it could be sidestepped. The thought of a problem is just a thought, If it is seen for what it is, the mind can respond appropriately.

It's all getting a bit vague and diffuse.
Ultimately there are no problems that are not completely sorted by death.
As we are all facing the grim reaper, why worry?
Dim problem as they say in Wales.

Probably the older you get the closer you get to that view, but, when you have people who rely on you it’s hard to throw complete caution to the wind. Which is I I prefer to view responsibility not so much as a burden or a duty but just your ability to respond to a situation. It’s a more neutral position without a heavy judgement of praise or blame.

All the people who you care for are also all going to die, so tell THEM not to worry too.

What sort of problems are you talking about?
