The depths of denial
How far are your depths of denial? Yes there are many people that are in this place and they cant seem to get out, they don’t know how to or they don’t want to, move from there.
They figure if they don’t talk about, if they shove it into the back of the closet, if they pile other stuff over it and then close the door it will be forgotten about, it will be gone. It’s like when we were little and we would pull the blankets over their heads because we were afraid, we would close our eyes real tight and think it will go away. Except surprise! When we opened our eyes, there it is, still there.
Whatever you are trying to bury is still there, it doesn’t matter what your hiding, it’s still there. Your hooked on prescription medications, your a drunk, your child is dropping out and sleeping around, you were sexually abused as a child, you can’t stop eating at night, whatever it may be that your running from, the problem is still there.
It will continue to be there until the day when you find the courage to stand up, own your part, take responsibility for what is going on, nothing is going to change, you will continue to blame others, you will continue to live with guilt and pain, that will not go away until YOU release it.
Trust me nothing is as bad as you make it seem in your head! Believe me I know,
I put all of my demons, all my problems and my mistakes out there each and every day for thousands to read, could it be any worse than that?
You just have to admit it to yourself and your family not thousands of people, it’s not that bad.
You won’t be able to get to your next level if your carrying all your junk on your back, you can’t climb up that latter if your hands are full of crap from the past, let it go and use your hands to pull yourself up and out of the hole you tried to buried all your stuff in.
Trust that you will have the support of your family, your friends, your church family and even if you have no one, you always have God, who will never leave you.
Find a support group, they understand what you are going through, the Internet is a wonderful thing to find others, go to consulting, find a preacher, it doesn’t matter as long as you are being pro active about the rest of your life.
Okay, so I never sugar coat anything, I not Willy Wonka. Is it going to easy? Oh Hell no, if it was going to be easy we would have all done it years ago, it will be tough, hard and at some times excruciating but when you come out on the other side, it is so worth it. No more hiding, no more lying, cheating, covering your tracks, worried that someone will find out, all of that will be gone, you will finally be free and what a feeling freedom is!
So today my friends, take that step, reach out to someone, admit you have a problem, ask for help, it doesn’t make you weak it, it will make you stronger! This is your life don’t hide from it, live it to the fullest, be your authentic self, the one God created you to be, the best you can possibly be, step out of your depths of denial.
