Some of us will live a life in denial on what is the universal truth. It’s how we’ve always played it.
Perhaps we’re in denial, because speaking the truth will open wounds that are better left unopened, perhaps we’re embarrassed of what other people will think, perhaps we’re struggling to come to terms with a particular issue and we’d rather not say what it is until it’s sorted, or perhaps we’re doing something the universe won’t agree with. Whatever our reasons, living in denial of the universal truth will never bring the right choices.
Living in denial not only hurts the person in denial, but changes the family dynamics, as that person continues to gloss over the truth. As hard as it is to be honest and upfront about everything we deal with, particularly around our struggles, what we tell others is massively important, as what we tell them not only shapes our relationship with them, but shapes our integrity too.
Living in denial can also leave other family members in a more frustrating place, particularly because they won’t always know what we know, but is something they may come to learn later. No matter how long it takes, the universal truth will prevail and act, when something happens that could never have been foreseen and we eventually get to know.
Just because we’re in denial about something, doesn’t mean the universe has its blinkers on. The universe knows the truth and the truth is not something that can be avoided completely, even if we are in denial about it.
Things have a habit of coming out in the wash anyway, either on this side or the other side of life. No one will escape accountability.
