Denial is Not Your Friend!

When something is wrong in my life, I feel like I can’t be at peace until it is resolved in some way. Sometimes it means talking to the person that is involved, sometimes it means stepping back from the situation and giving myself some time to digest it. Ignoring it, however, is denial which only causes anxiety and makes the situation even worse. We deny what we feel because we are afraid that resolving the conflict will be so awful that we just live with it. When you think this way, you are selling yourself short. There is always more than one way to resolve conflict–the answer is usually not disastrous. Beginning a dialogue is the first step in resolving relationship issues, deepening your relationship skills and creating a more satisfying life. So take a deep breath and take a positive step…because how you relate always matters.
