Denial Is Not A Failure

Denial can be fleeting, a guest (welcome or not) that stays for a while before retreating or a constant companion.

It can present itself whilst grieving, when given a terminal diagnosis or following a trauma.

But here’s the thing.

Denial is not the failure it is portrayed to be.

This is a quote by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

“Denial helps us to pace our feelings of grief. There is a grace in denial. It is nature’s way of letting in only as much as we can handle.”
