Why do we spend a good deal of our lives in denial?
We deny ourselves the true freedom to be the person we really are.
We deny ourselves happiness by accepting things that we know not to be right for us, often through fear of upsetting others.
Yet we would rather deny our own happiness than upset others, who are often doing the very same thing, madness.
Instead, we could allow ourselves to live the life that would make us happy. The thing that holds all of us back is ourselves and this acceptance of denying ourselves the things that make us happy.
We have been brainwashed by society to think about ourselves is selfish and wrong. So we deny ourselves the life we want so as not to be seen as selfish.
If you are happy, then this will be better for those around you and importantly, better for you. Yet we are often too busy spending our time trying to make others happy.
The person best qualified to know what will enable us to be happy is ourselves, not others.
Stop deny yourself and allow yourself to be happy, you’d be mad not to. Start by choosing your own happiness first and not that of others.
