If you are talking about psychological denial, then confronting the person will not do any good - as the truth is too painful for them to accept.
Are you trying to baffle me with knowledge? If I'm in denial, won't confronting me just strengthen my denial (even if that is the common approach)?
I think I'd prefer to be guided to the truth at a pace that I could handle.
well, if everyone could collude, would that solve the problem?
Wouldn't they need to overcome the denial as well as confront the issue?
If they're doing something which could end their life or destroy it, confront.
confront :D always
why does that not surprise me :)
It depends if someone is close to me, and if they have a habits of lostening
That's the old contradiction, everybody expect you to be honest, but get angry when you tell em the truth.
You sure you prefer to be confronted? I tried but it got worse.
So I need to be patience, is that it? And keep on reminding? Cmon tell me directly,its easier to confront men than women in denial. I need to keep on confronting her?
So leaving is one way huh. I get you. I heard you. Thank you
Sadly but true. It's the right thing to do. I just wish there is other kind method,but I guess,sometimes you need it in order to be kind.
ah, you say that now...
…would take a true friend to make that choice...
I would deny it.
It depends if it harmless and a reason of their happiness, than why not let them be in denial. Otherwise, I have same stance as yours :)
I would confront if I care enough and hound them to death possibly or until they throw me out. Otherwise I will just let it be.
