Urban Dictionary defines denial as, “What you are accused of being in when whenever you contradict a baseless claim made by an idiot who couldn’t otherwise win a debate against a Cheeto.”
It is always shocking to hear negative feedback, whether it’s true or not. Maybe you are a little in denial about the last ten pounds of weight you’re carrying or perhaps your boyfriend does act like a jerk at times. We all have things we would rather not face about ourselves and our life.
Before you freak out about what someone says to you, take a look at the source of the feedback. If they are a bit of a moron, take their criticism with a pinch of salt. Their perceptions of you may be way off base.
