Our natural tendency when things go wrong is to bury them under a rock somewhere and hope that nobody finds out.
Sometimes nobody does, but under these hidden conditions, problems often fester and rot. They might not always get worse, but they will almost never get better.
Exposure to light, compassionate inspection and curiosity can help stop the rot from setting in. It’s rarely enough to solve the problem outright, but it helps to illuminate options and solutions. To light the way forward.
Like most disinfectant, there is often an initial sting upon first exposure, but it’s nothing compared to the pain of buried problems, rotting behind the scenes.
