Willful blindness is a term used in legal proceedings meaning conscious avoidance.
It means to ignore what is right in front of you.
It is refusing to look at what can be seen.
Willful blindness happens to us all… especially when it comes to our own minds.
We don’t want to see why we eat so much.
We don’t want to see why we yell at the ones we love the most.
We don’t want to see why we drink too much.
We don’t want to see… because, it will probably be painful.
There is no room in your world for willful blindness.
You can never move forward.
You can never grow.
You stay stuck in blissful ignorance.
It is okay to be wrong.
Open your mind. See what is right in front of you.
Question everything you believe.
Ask yourself, “How am I wrong about that?”
Ask yourself every single time you choose to ignore what is hiding beneath the surface.
If there is something to be seen, you must look.
You won’t regret it.
