Denial

Sometimes it’s difficult for us to acknowledge or even realise that we need help.

Over the last few months, I’ve found myself in denial about the suffering I have been going through.

Something I’ve been trying to explore is the reason behind my denial. Perhaps, it’s to do with the fear I feel about being vulnerable.

But without addressing what’s wrong, there can be little hope of me getting better.

Sometimes, we need someone else to point out to us that we’re in denial, despite it being painful to hear.

The ironic thing is, I refused to admit that I was in denial.

But only by recognising this, can we make space to seek help and be helped.

Has there ever been something you’ve been in denial about?
