Denial At All Costs?

It’s cruel they say that thin line between love and hate.

If lovers can’t relate then denial is their fate. Temptation looms in desperation for an appealing alternative.

As callous intentions fuse drastic measures falter making their beds tragically into a cradle of lies. They Kiss.

Whispers in the dark erect like a rose-waving in the winds with breaths of deception casting its shadows in the light of the sun.

The innocents cry out for justice and declare themselves as wounded.

Yet, justice is for those who wait patiently until fairness blooms in their favor.

And what of the dove, the blind, and the perfectly indifferent muses?

It is love until winter comes and the vibrant lust once shared dims into a clueless obsession.

Denial vs. Reality

Sometimes denial allows the opportunity for us to suppress our inner knowing in order to protect our heart from pain. In some cases, it can seem easier to practice denial than to accept the truth so that we don’t have to confront a potentially cruel and harsh reality.

Yet, denial in its duality can also serve us as a defense against false allegations. In such cases, denial is our most faithful companion as we proclaim our truth in the midst of our judgment.

However, often denial can be our go to suppressor of our inner voice of truth. This occurs as painful circumstances seem too overwhelming to accept making denial seem more preferable. So often then denial is used to cover the truth.

Despite the best of efforts though the truth always remains even if it is masked under the wings of denial. Eventually, a moment arises where the light of the truth is blatantly exposed yet, denial is always there to send the light’s penetrating rays into the darkness of non-existence by offering us, blindfolds.

It can be challenging to take our blindfolds off the ones used to keep your heart from screaming in pain.

That inner voice is very tempting to embrace it whispers, “This is not happening…” Which soothes our fears and offers a delay to our untreated inevitable outcomes. However, if we decide to take our blindfolds of denial off we can reach the truth and heal whether internal or external factors that are involved in our life experience.

Recovery can occur by confronting the truth hidden within ourselves or our unpleasant hurtful situations. This immersive confrontation is beneficial to our life journey and offers opportunities for us to learn and grow.

By confronting pain in these instances where denial is being used to avoid being hurt healing can begin much sooner rather than later if we so choose. Acknowledgment and eventually release of our pain or hurt feelings allows a way for us to recover in a healthy productive way.
