Are you in denial?

How do you cope with stressors or events in your life? Deny? Overlook. Or face it head on? Have you done both? Why or why not? Do you think those "in denial" really know they are in denial or they choose to on some level be in denia;l?

Acceptance. May I accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And the wisdom to know the difference. For me when in denial even the most obvious is impossible for me to comprehend. Whether others have different experiences, they will have to answer themselves.

It's just another life process one may fall into. Waste of time, that would be a non accepting opinion,wouldn't it? Sure one may have been in a more productive attitude, but I'm in no hurry.

I wouldn't say I live in denial, I very much face things and I know this is the best way to deal with situations. I may tend to back off for short amounts of time, while I actually come to turns with things but in most cases I face things head on. I'm pretty head strong in the terms of not being scared to go forward, I only tend to reflect on the past and that's not such an issue.

I do believe that I am in denial today. I am denying the fact that my boyfriend for 3 years is really not into. I am in denial that this person has not near plans of marrying me in the future. I am in denial that I am inlove with another person, a person who is willing to start a family with me but I can't be with because I am still in denial that my current relationship is heading to an end. May God help me decide and do the right thing.

I have been dealing with a lot of stress in life. i listen to music, watch motivational videos and try to keep myself away from the problems. i try not to think of it. i know its difficult but you just need to try.
