Denial Revisited

Posted by Jim Selman on 10/31/06

Being in denial is like having a blind spot in your car—you need a rearview mirror and some competence to use it or you’ll end up having a million accidents that are always someone else’s fault (usually the person driving behind you!).

Too many of us are growing older and thinking that age happens ‘to us’. I think we need a rearview mirror that shows us our blind spots around age and aging.

For ‘who we are’ doesn’t get any older—even when our bodies change.

More on rearview mirrors later…
