A thought provoking title for a serious issue. “Betrayal Blindness” is a state of mind, writes Dr Angelo Subido, in which you deliberately choose to keep a secret from yourself. Dr Subido uses a thought provoking example of a situation to explain “betrayal blindness”. He explains that you have it when the reality of what’s happening around you in your world and it’s consequences are actually more frightening than if you decided to face it. So you lie to yourself and don’t look at what’s really happening because you don’t want to face the costs of such an action.
