Denial Ain’t Just a River in Egypt

The New York Times has an interesting article on the role of denial in relationships. If you want to look at the whole article, go here.

 There is a concept in Judaism known as shalom bayis. When used in a healthy way, denial is an essential tool needed in keeping peace in the home. It not only applies to relationships between husband and wife but is essential in frienships, relationships between employers and employees, coworkers, and last but not least family. If we held on to every bad thing ever said and/or have done to us by the people closest to us, relationships would not last very long, that’s for sure.  I might have more to say on this later.

ETA: Regarding the title, if you’re a big fan of Saturday Night Live, then you know who I’m referring to .
