Problems and fixes

I was at a wedding today and one word stuck within me. The preacher was talking about the problems you face as a couple and how they won’t be easy.

We will all face problems, he said, but we must find the power to overcome them.

And this word, overcoming, was the one.

Because to me each problem is something to fix, but fixes implies a correction, implies that there could be a change of course, that the situation you’re in can evolve.

This, sadly, doesn’t always happen. That’a why the word overcome seems so powerful to me, because it means that a problem to be “solved” doesn’t necessarily require fixing something.
