Ignoring issues can sometimes take the form of anger and should be addressed.
Either way it’s not fine, but as long as they’re our own issues for us to deal with, then it’s up to us to address those issues and anger if anger is presenting itself; but what if one of those issues involves someone else, who is not to blame for that person’s anger.
When we choose to ignore an issue, particularly if it affects someone else, it’s never long before that issue become more than just an issue. Just because we don’t deal with issues doesn’t mean those issues go away. For me having Cerebral Palsy and it not being addressed meant that I would have to address this issue on my own, to try to figure out how to live with Cerebral Palsy and be comfortable with it.
I believe all issues needs to be addressed emotionally. When any issue is ignored, it does little for our confidence, let alone our emotional wellbeing. When it comes to a terminal illness, it brings with it many other thoughts about what we haven’t dealt with and that will eventually bring about guilt, rightly so.
Seeing anyone is a gentle reminder that this is one thing or many things that have never been put right or dealt with and possibly never will. Seeing someone struggle will always remind that person of what they didn’t deal with and for us we will instinctively know. Body language accounts for everything.
