Denial doesn't "ex-ist" (i.e. stand-out) as denial. It doesn't wear a label. It manifests as the problems we never solve, the people we always blame, the things we never accomplish.
We deny something that it is essential. We conceal aspects of ourselves from ourselves. These aspects are still operative; they still govern what will exist for us, what we will see and not see, what we will think about and not think about. However, now when these things show up (as they must) we think about them as being non-essential.
This is why identifying denial is the beginning of opportunity and rightly seen, "denial" becomes a gateway to huge reserves of untapped possibilities.
What is gnawing at you through your denial of its existence?
Is there something you are having to pretend away?
