There’s a saying ‘Once you reach the top, send the elevator back down,’ which is exactly what Esha has done. Good for her!
Iwas intrigued by the expression ‘ostrich syndrome’ (Do you have ostrich syndrome? February 20) – a psychological term to describe a person’s behaviour of ignoring his/her problems hoping they will go away – and that set me reading the entire feature.
Imust admit I was suffering from that syndrome for a brief period but I managed to get over it largely by reading some self-help books.
Looking back, I now feel ignoring a problem and hoping it will go away is not a solution. If anything, it can worsen and snowball over time,
