Issues

DEFINITION

A vague reference to problems. Issues is said in contrast to saying ‘challenges’, ‘problems’ or ‘failures’. The word has become more common in politically-correct conversation to downplay what might otherwise, be serious drawbacks in a plan or a person’s abilities.

“I broke up with my girlfriend because she has too many issues to work out.”
