To kill weeds one must dig out the roots. If one leaves any of the root in the ground they may sprout up again. Life is the same. Go to the root of the perceived problem and deal with it directly from there.
The root is deep within consciousness. The problem is never outside of ourselves. Any event is perceived as a problem because we are unable to accept it. We are unable to accept so we suffer It effects.
Acceptance is always mental. It does not mean do not respond to the situation appropriately or compassionately. We respond as needed but internally; mentally there is only even mindedness.
If a building is a blazing inferno we do not stand around watching people die. We respond appropriately. Our response in such a case is one of urgency but internally there is only equanimity.
It is our own attitude which defines certain events as problems. Although events May be in opposition to current laws, rules, policies or beliefs; that does not make them a problem for us internally. We obey the laws of society of course, but Our attitude is one of acceptance. Whatever has occurred is just an occurrence which we have defined as good, bad, right, wrong, acceptable or unacceptable. Which is all based on society, individual cultures, beliefs, knowledge and experience.
The contents of our minds and the ways it concocts is the cause of our judgment that what has occurred is a problem.
The situation may oppose accepted standards but the idea it is a problem always comes from within. Then we suffer from our mind's concoctions.
