are you in denial????

One thing I've learned today: the key to surviving is denial. We deny that we're tired; we deny we're scared, we deny how badly we want to suceed and most importantly we deny that we're in denial. We only see what we wanna see and believe what we want to believe. And it works. We lie to ourselves so much that after a while the lies start to seem the truth. We deny so much that we can't recognize the truth... right in front of our faces. Sometimes reality has a way of sneaking up and when the damn bursts all you can do is to swim. We can only lie to ourselves for so long. We are tired. We are scared. Denying it doesn't change the truth. Sooner or later we have to put aside our denial and face the world on gun's blazing. Denial. It's not a river in Egypt. It's a freaking ocean. So how do you keep yourself from drowning? -Meredith Grey
