Denial enables people to stay where they are. It stunts one’s growth mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. It destroys hearts and lives.
Denial exists due to someone’s fear of facing themselves. It is from one’s a lack of insight. Denial can be paralyzing.
I have found through my own studies, that denial accompanies one’s issues of control. Denial stems from a lack of control. By denying, there is no need to address issues. Because when in denial, no issues exist except for those the one in denial is willing to address. Denial leads to self destruction.
As I have stated in previous articles, the truth will always reveal itself. It may not be at a time we expect or even desire, but nonetheless the truth will be revealed. When the truth is revealed, it allows the one whom is in denial to lose all control and begin to face themselves. Until the denial is exposed, there is no hope. Once denial is exposed, the person must choose to snap out of it or keep suffering from the consequences of their denial.
When one accepts that they are in denial; they can truly begin to heal themselves. That ominous cloud will be lifted and lives can be restored. Only then can one begin to live a life of balance. Only then can one begin to live a life consisting of peace, and harmony. Only then will they find that their life will no longer be dictated by their fear of the truth, or exposure.

thanks for speaking such truth
I watched a child die this weekend, because of his parents denial of their own issues, and how they were affecting their children. Because of the parents denial of his substance abuse problem. Because of his parents denial of their responsibility to make sure his issues were addressed directly. Even now, the finger pointing continues. Denial destroys everyone it touches. I saw you D. I’m sorry I couldn’t figure out how to make them understand the urgency. RIP Sweetheart.
