An interesting topic the other night.

So the easy definitions are "a refusal to satisfy a request or desire" - or a "refusal to admit the truth or reality of something".

However - a much more serious definition is also had when it comes to the human mind. In psychology, Denial is defined as "a defense mechanism in which confrontation with a personal problem or with reality is avoided by denying the existence of the problem or reality"
Simply put, your mind says - nope -  not dealing with that right now.  
Left unchecked - these events fester and boil, causing fear and tensions - and we often self-medicate to alleviate the mental pain   The compartmentalized issues can linger for years.
Interestingly -  the 12 Step program has a great way of dealing with this.  It's really nothing to do …

Obsessive it seemed - and after time - it repeatedly seemed to be a holier than though - we've got it right thing - which rubbed me wrong... and Saturday - what?

OCD Me... had to investigate - Columbo on the case... here are my findings.

Fact - Ten Commandments - from God - Sabbath Keep it Holy - #4 - We get…
