Self-Deception & CoC

As safe space leaders in the community, we have to unfortunately deal with some individuals that don’t accept the consequences of their actions or refuse to believe they did anything wrong. From doing some research, I think some people practice self-deception. This article can explain it much better than I can.

We just wiped our hands clean (for now) of one individual we believe is practicing self-deception. It’s the only way we can make sense of their avoidance of facts that paint them in a negative light or shake up their core beliefs. One belief was that they were always a welcoming person. When I shared with them an example when they intimidated a party planner into dis-inviting me and blocking from me from attending, they blamed me and insisted they did nothing wrong.

Be wary of these people. Some self-deception can be good, but it may eventually cause harm.
