Defense Mechanisms In Relationships
We all use defense mechanisms in our relationships from time to time. These are ways of keeping ourselves protected and from getting hurt. When our emotions are on the line it can be scary, and our minds use defense mechanisms as a way to cope with the anxiety. Here are some common defense mechanisms that we use in relationships:
· Overcompensation. We overcompensate in relationships to distract from areas where we feel we have shortcomings. For example, you might not feel like you are close enough emotionally to your partner, so you overcompensate by dazzling them with your thrilling social life, taking them to parties and on exciting dates instead. We use this defense mechanism to make up for areas of insecurity and to protect ourselves from getting hurt.
