Denial, Distortion, and Delusion. The 3 -D’s
This is Chato Stewart, thank you for reading this post. It will change your life! For this Mental Health Humor post, I will be writing it in the 3rd person.
Chato Stewart has it, do you? Do you have The Three D’s for dealing with stress and mental fatigue? You may not even recognize them off hand. Are your 3D’s the way to defer, duck and dance around emotional trauma?
Consequently, it is the deferring, ducking and dancing that seems to get Chato Stewart in the most trouble. Is it just his and our Psychological Defense Mechanisms at work? Are we slaves or are we hard-wired brain Defense Mechanisms when faced with fear, stress, or emotional situations? Is our fight or flight triggered? More importantly: why does it seem like Chato Stewart’s Defense Mechanisms are triggered on a dime? Does this only happen with someone dealing with a mental disorder? This Defense Mechanisms term we may associate more in a clinical setting of a mental health professional office or provider, a term a doctor might use while talking to us. There are three more “D’s” to add to: “defer, duck and dance.”
PS- Chato Stewart may have been in Denial and my thinking could have been a bit Distortion to think this post would change you life, is he Delusion? I guess we will have to keep reading to find out.
