The problems we are dealing with seem so immense, so insurmountable, we don't know how we're going to overcome them.
We feel so mired in the situation we're in, we only know we don't want to be here, but can't imagine what it would be like to be out of it. That's okay. You don't have to know how (or even what).
In fact, in some way, not knowing how or what is a good thing. Our best thinking got us into this, so using the same thinking is only going to create more of the same.
