“Ren Alexandria: Complaining about a problem that HAS a solution is called “Whining”
Complaining about a problem that does not have a solution is called “Grief” “
The way I see this is that here is no such thing as a problem without a solution.
If you can’t get out of somewhere you are in a situation, not in a problem.
‘Solving a problem’ and ‘grieving’ are both human reactions to outside inputs, ways to cope with a specific set of conditions, but have different outcomes. Trying to ‘solve a problem’ will eventually set you free, even if through ‘death by exertion’ while ‘grieving’ will finally get you accustomed with the situation.
So this is more about individual choices than the specific set of conditions that generated the whole situation.
