Wall

What do you do when you have tried everything to solve a problem and you hit a wall? How do you make peace with the situation? What if people keep looking to you for answers, but none of your ideas will make the problem go away? It is so frustrating. How long do you keep trying? I am ready to move on, but the past keeps pulling me back.

As a stubborn perfectionist, that's a hard one. Failure and "non-success" is something that I haven't figured out how to deal with very well, so I usually try to put a spin on it - if I can't "solve" the problem, at least I addressed it, or at least I got things moving a bit. Every small thing helps to add up, and sometimes I learn to accept that a smaller action is better than nothing.

When you get an unsolvable, it's just that it's not time to solve it yet. When the time comes, the solution will present itself. Try sleeping on it. I get my best ideas that way. I'm way more brilliant if I give myself enough time.

Sometime unsolvables are lessons. Try asking - What am I supposed to be learning from this? Some times that is how the solution comes.

Patience if possible. Remember that you are a mere human and don't know all the answers, if people expect you to know all the answers, they have forgotten your humanity.
