@green-archer Problem is that we can't fix every situation just by confronting the source. It all varies from one example to another one. The source is what makes us experience and carry different scars and we may eliminate the source but the scars usually stay within, manifest and act without being constantly provoked by the source and "his" presence. When I said "fighting demons," I thought about eliminating them through actions which present opposition to them, not just surrendering to them and carrying them. Sometimes it's late to confront the cause itself because it's not there, all we have left is demons it created. So dealing with them and looking for a positive change can't be life gone wrong or masochism, because sometimes it takes suffering and pain before experiencing the joy, which I believe shows an act of bravery. Casting them away just to get to their source won't instantly eliminate and heal scars they produced, in most cases.
