I am a big Michael Landon fan. But I must respectfully disagree with his above statement. I think that repression and denial can be very healthy. If I had to live with the awareness of my impending and inevitable death in the forefront of my mind every day, I think it would be a bleak existence for me. I appreciate it when my mind does me a favor. My mind rarely does me favors. I think repression and denial of irrevocable and distressing Truth is one of the few and far between blessings that I have inside of my head. I will happily back burner the awareness of my death. Lol.
