6 Comments on Denial

Have you ever been in denial? Of course, we face denial now and then. It’s not necessarily bad. It’s a way of protecting ourselves from pain, at least temporarily.

Denial is such a powerful tool. Never underestimate its ability to cloud your vision. For many reasons, we have become experts at using this tool to make reality more tolerable. We have learned well how to stop pain caused by reality not by changing our circumstances but by feigning that our circumstances are something other that what faces us.

To those in denial don’t be too hard on yourself. While one part of you was busy creating a fantasy-reality, the other part went to work on accepting the truth.

Now, it’s time to find that courage. Face the truth. Let it sink in gently.

When we can do that, we will have moved forward.
