Denial

Security is when everything is settled, when nothing can happen to you; security is the denial of life.Germaine Greer

Wishing things would just go away. Wishing not to feel or do something uncomfortable, that’s denial. It stops us in our tracks, creates a blockage and consequently we become depressed, anxious, and/or sick. It’s important to remember that all the energy being expended ignoring something is actually having an adverse effect on us. To get out, we first come to terms with what’s happening, we take responsibility. Then slowly, gently, with kindness we set about facing those feelings, thoughts and actions that were so terrifying.
