Congruence is the degree of accuracy between experience communication and awareness If a person has a high level of congruence then they are nearly equal in all three areas whereas incongruence occurs when there are differences between the three areas In the past I had a few experiences in which a teacher girlfriend or my mother would tell me to calm down because I was to upset I would begin to argue that fact and declare that it was not me who was upset even though my body language tone of voice and language had shown others that indeed I was very angry I look back on my earlier years and see that as me having been incongruent Denial and my lack of awareness during the experience of being angry and what had caused the anger is an example for an individuals incongruence Initially I felt this concept to be simple but after working this theory with a few examples I have come up with several questions but only a few I will ask What would be some of the key reasons for lacking awareness which is a key ingredient to ones level of congruence or incongruence I have come up with denial of experiences or repression of the emotions that have come from the experiences and the painful experiences themselves I think pain is a common reason for the use of denial and repression fore who in their right mind wants a thing to do with it So why not do anything possible to avoid the pain If the pain is unavoidable and no longer able to be denied or repressed we may become aware of the experience and hopefully we are able to communicate all thats within to another or at least ourselves Are we then congruent Where and how do we develop our ways of coping facing denying and repressing our lifes pains Is this an inheritance from our observation and experience
