When things are tough and too horrifying to deal with I like to take a vacation to my favorite state, Denial. Denial allows me the luxury of pretending that nothing bad will happen, even though all concrete evidence points in a different direction. Tears never fall in Denial, there's no "ugly" crying, there's no need, the sun is always shining. In Denial I am not required to make any decisions, I don't have to yield to the dark path of the Unknown, I can stay on course in the Comfort Lane. Denial is place where I can hide all my pain and sorrow and nobody will ever be the wiser. The only problem with Denial is that it's flat, if you go too far you will fall off the edge and be in the state of Depression.
