Avoidance

Avoidance is the hope that with time and unconsciousness the painful unresolved feelings or issue will go away.
But, we know, it never does and all too often, avoiding what needs to be addressed makes the problem worse.  Avoidance is fueled by projection and the imagined repercussions of dealing with what’s in front on one at the moment: s/he will be hurt or mad at me if I speak up…or I’lll never recover from my sadness.  Pain and bad feelings pass and avoiding avoidance and risking being with whatever needs attending, will make you a stronger and healthier person.
