I have reached a level of denial I didn’t think was possible. It’s like I’m walking straight towards a hungry, wild lion while wearing a meat suit and looking just over his head admiring the pretty sunset. I know the lion is there. I know he’s about to eat me. But I keep walking towards him like something is going to change within the next couple of steps. Not something I do, mind you, but something miraculous via a 3rd party.
Is it still considered “denial” when you’re this aware of your denial? Or is it just plain stupidity at that point?
