Problems are not the problem. Coping is the problem. ~ Virginia Satir
It was the spring semester 1996. I took my first class about family therapy theories. Virginia Satir’s theory is one of them. I remembered so impressed with this quote that I wrote it in my diary to remind myself: “Problems are not the problems. How I solve the problem is the problem.”
Recently, I have a lot of couples told me the same thing: “We are too busy to talk.” It got me to think about Satir’s words again.
So, what are the reasons that most of the couples don’t have the time to talk?
