No pat solutions

Fayteen and I agree that there are no simple solutions to life’s complex problems. There are solutions. But, generally, finding them requires time and work.

That’s why we like Jessica Lamb-Shapiro’s book Promise Land—My Journey Through America’s Self-Help Culture.

Lamb-Shapiro observes: “No pat solutions can resolve, or even address, the complex challenges of life.

“Self-help books can sometimes be helpful, but “often the authors themselves will—and rightfully so—warn that just reading a book will not solve your problems.

“Sometimes, the only solution is to accept that there is no solution, that certain things have to be endured, that they cannot, should not, be fixed.”
