Rune of the Day, Dec 5, all in all you’re just another brick in the wall

Are you a little bit defensive about something today? Yes, there are times when averting can be a good thing, but putting up blocks does a huge disservice to all parties involved. The root of defensive behavior is really denial. It is easier to block out than to deal with the situation, but honestly the twinge of discomfort that comes with dealing with the situation is a lot less than the pain that comes from delaying and letting it grow into a much bigger problem. So figure out what it is that you are denying about yourself and you will be able to deal with the situation openly and it will go a lot smoother.
