Defense mechanism

September 6, 2011 7:02am CST
Hey guys, I just discovered a defense mechanism of a friend. Though, I'd rather not discuss it here, but it is something about assuring of not getting hurt again. It's like, in the past he/she got hurt by a friend. Maybe, that friend left him/her. So, now she/he developed a defense mechanism to prevent it from happening again and that's why she/he acts different sometimes. So how about you? Do you have "defense mechanisms" from getting hurt?

I've never thought about such a strategy. Maybe that's why sometimes I get hurt. But it would happen when I'm betrayed by somebody who is very close to me. If I don't care about this person, he can't hurt me.

I also have a defense mechanism. I tend to shoot someone with a pistol. LOL

Well Hello FickleSky. There is nothing like defense mechanism with which you can protect yourself from being hurt. The only thing you can do is change the way you think. Modify your attitude. Doing this can help you get unhurt by many people. This is what you can do to protect your emotions. If you haven't heard of it, Self hypnotism also greatly helps in reducing emotional pain as well as body pain. I use this process to save myself from getting hurt.

Its good that we learn in our own ways how to minimize the hurt factor.People will,as long as we live in a society be subjected to various forms of pain-physical,emotional psychological.As youngsters,with very little experience in life, they get hurt very easily. But with age we learn how to handle such situations with maturity.Yes it true that we must have our own methonds to handle such delicate matters. If not it could be a reason to ruin ourselves

Mine is being kind of anti social and mean. It is just how i turned out to be but this allows only the people that actually think well of me to continue trying to be my friend and show me that their worth it.
