Can you see the pink elephant?


How would you feel if this is what you saw every time you were in a particular environment?
How would you feel if the people around you refused to acknowledge this?
It's not hard to see, is it! But it appears only a few people do see it... 

Reminds me of the story, The Emperor's New Clothes. The emperor is so proud of his new clothes, he is in denial about their origins. Others see he is wearing nothing, but he refused to acknowledge that he has wasted his money and was made to look the fool... 

It's not that anybody will look the fool by acknowledging the pink elephant...but they may look the fool if they refuse to see it at all... 

Maybe the timing is wrong...maybe the denial is too raw... maybe it's not their elephant to see... but it is there.
