I always hated when an old colleague of mine used to say this. I felt as though it was a concession to things that were “out of your control”. I would think to myself, “what a cop-out”, “only cowards don’t fight”, “things aren’t as they seem”, “I can change things to fit my ideology, to deny reality, to hide my fears of the truth”.
Don’t deny that things are what they are. When you finally wake up to the truth of it all, you might not be able to handle it!
