Denial and Depression
Are you living with denial and depression? What if you are living with denial and, or depression, and not know it? Maybe you are experiencing signs and symptoms of denial and depression from the challenges that come from: losing weight, managing and saving money; initiating conversations, creating and developing healthy friendships, and harmonious love relationships; the inability to feel good naturally; limited energy; insomnia; unclear thinking; or extreme emotional highs and lows. If you are stressed, you may feel overwhelmed because you have too much to do and not enough time in the day to complete it all. You may feel as if everything is falling apart and you don’t know how to stop the fall. You may feel like you are going around in circles in certain areas of your life and you don’t know how to get off of the merry-go-round. You may have just lost a loved one, relationship, or job and are having a tough time dealing with the loss. These feelings could trigger signs and symptoms of denial and depression brought on by mental and emotional stress such as, prolonged periods of sadness, emptiness, or mental and emotional fatigue. Some basic signs and symptoms of stress include frequent headaches, hair breakage, upset stomach, acid reflux, or anxiety attacks etc… this represents a short list of the challenges which can lead to denial and depression.

I wrote the book, “The Beauty and Vanity of Denial” because I discovered soon after being diagnosed with depression that I was living with denial stories that were causing me mental and emotional pain. Although I did seek help from a mental health professional, I did not do this as a result of any conversation I had with them. I decided that I needed to figure out what was really behind what I was currently feeling. I decided that in order for me to get my life back on track I had to examine every area of my life and especially my own issues because even though I knew I had issues, I didn’t want to believe they had anything to do with the condition of my mind, body, or life. I was stuck in neutral blaming everyone around me for what was going on in my life and getting nowhere.
I had to reach the end of my rope in order to change my life. Until then, I had to live feeling sad, lonely, angry, and confused… for the rest of my life, or do something different. I decided that I wanted to feel better, in fact I wanted to feel my best. That meant I had to examine my life and get to the root of my challenges. I needed to find out what was causing the sadness, frustration and anger that I felt most of the time. When I decided I wanted to feel good, I had to acknowledge what was no longer working in my life. I discovered that I didn’t want to acknowledge my truth because I knew if I did, I would be forced to make changes and those changes were not going to be comfortable. I didn’t want to move beyond my comfort zone even though I was sick and tired and sick and tired of being that way. I found out that the condition of my body, mind and life was because of my relationship with denial and depression.
I had been denying my truth in favor of a story that kept me comfortably living a lie. My journey of introspection and self-reflection took me through a process in which I had to ask myself a series of questions and answer them truthfully. No one else knew or had to know my truth, but it was important for me to acknowledge it. I wrote about the process I used for coming out of denial in my new book.
