As we continue to protect ourselves by ignoring the truth, we become more exposed than we are protected. It wasn’t so much that I was ignoring the truth, others were ignoring my truth. Until I came to piece my own life together, that was my life.
It would be many years before I would start to move forward. To the outside world my life appeared to be perfect, we appear perfect but our emotions and our lives are far from perfect.
We run from our lives, from ourselves, from our issues. We run from anyone who has become more successful than us and whilst we live in denial, we continue to expose ourselves to more elements.
When we count someone else’s blessings instead of own, we continue to open ourselves up to more vulnerability. We choose denial so we don’t have to face the truth. We must face our truth.
As we continue to run, we continue to cut ourselves off from the very source that gives us an understanding on the things we need to understand.
