Are you living in denial?
If the same bad outcomes keep happening to you time and time again and you can’t seem to figure out why; there’s a good chance that you are denying reality in some way. You know you are in denial when:
You tell yourself that you do not have a problem, and you do not need any help. You tell yourself you can handle it, and it is not a big problem. You are confident that you can quit at any time. (Keeping up appearances)
You ignore your compulsive, self-sabotaging behaviours (like anger, resentment, panic attacks, addictions, depression, etc.) that you know you have no control over. (Ignore the hurt and the pain/Live in fantasy and rationalization)
You feel tired, fatigued, and exhausted, and you could be depressed, but you minimise the situation instead of attending to it. (Minimize your fears / minimize that your life has become unmanageable)
If you recognize these issues are at play in your life and you feel helpless about what to do. Please open up to a loved one or seek help. For more on this topic, please visit https://www.dorothyattema.com/
