All problems are effects. To deal with them, you have to understand the part you played in the original cause. You also have to understand that the cause is in the past and cannot be undone. Once above foundation has been set, the next thing is to make a decision to stop repeating in the present, similar actions that caused the problem. Be realistic on what YOU (not another person or government) can do to set up new good causes and ensure to follow through your plans on daily basis for your own transcendence. Know that the problems in your life provide feedback and unique experiences required to help you better chart your life course; hence do not dwell too much on them, rather take the lessons learned and focus on the next cool thing you want to experience in life.
