We deny because we are doubtful.
We are doubtful because we trust too much.
We trust too much because we know how to love.
We love because we feel appreciated.
We feel appreciated because we long for approval.
We long for approval because we want to stay relevant.
We want to stay relevant because we are alive.
We are alive and we need to find a purpose for it.
We need purpose to reassure us that we matter in this vast and crowded world.
Reassurance makes us feel alive. Being alive means our existence is not futile.
And when the reason for our existence makes an unexpected overturn, we lose our sense of purpose.
When we lose our sense of purpose, we lose the feeling of existing.
That is why people deny.
