A MUCH SIMPLER DENIAL
A much simpler denial:
To convince yourself that there is no effect.
There is no insecurity.
There is no sadness.
There is no anger.
There is no disappointment, all while being completely submerged in the aforementioned.
To convince yourself that self-denial is self-help.
To change the facade per occasion and project only an idea of knowledge and enlightenment.
It’s far more convenient to ignore than respond.
It’s a much simpler denial to tell yourself that you never had these feelings at all.
