One way of categorizing problems is along the lines of problems that get solved with money and problems that money can’t solve.
A broken pipe at home, a dent on the car, and other such incidental expenses are all problems that go away when we spend money.
The alternatives are problems that no amount of money can fix – a health issue, a problem in a close relationship, or a challenging relationship with a manager.
It always sucks to deal with problems. But they’re also a fact of life. And between the two, problems that money can solve are the best kinds of problems. Assuming we live within our means, these problems may cause temporary hurt – but they’re far better than the alternative.
