People will often go to great lengths to ignore obvious warning signs, red flags, and common sense in order to have what they want to believe fit the narrative they wish to follow.
They will even do so at their own peril.
They believe so strongly that they are right that they are blind to all that is wrong. All the while, their condition worsens and the life they want crumbles.
Addiction. Domestic abuse. Obesity. Stress. Debt. Self-injury. Eating disorders. Political ideologies.
Don’t make excuses for the monsters in your life. Don’t normalize them. And certainly, don’t ignore them. Because sooner or later you’ll see what you’ve been blind to.
Better sooner than later.
