Denial – Jonathan Cainer

“Denial is a side-effect of cowardice. Consciousness requires courage. When we are afraid to deal with an issue, we try to pretend it doesn’t exist. That’s particularly convenient when we don’t know what to do. Ignore it, we figure, and maybe it will go away. It takes real strength to say, ‘I don’t have the answer and I’m worried that even if I can get it, I may not like it, but I am going to keep on asking questions anyhow.’ The latter approach, though, you can take with honour. You will be surprised how well it works.”
