— How we use defense mechanisms in relationships

psych-quotes:

How we use defense mechanisms in relationships

People who are in relationships rely heavily on defense mechanisms to make the partners to believe them. These mechanisms have helped many relationships to survive when unwanted things happen. However, they work in the short term while in the long term; they do more harm to the relationships than good. So which ones do we use in relationships?

The most common defense mechanism is the denial. This is where we fail to acknowledge that something happened or there is a threat.  A good example is a partner who learns that the lover is cheating on him or her. It is hard to get over something without accepting it first. There are also many people who pretend that a relationship is still there yet it is clear that the partner has moved on.

The other defense mechanism that is common to find is displacement. This is where lovers transfer or discharge emotions on objects that are less threatening. For example a man may beat or shout at the wife yet his emotions were starred elsewhere. It is important for people in relationships to control themselves when displacement defense mechanism is fired so that they can deal with the true enemy. We must avoid attacking our partners after being hurt by those we can’t harm.

Repression can be described as a complete loss of memory related to a painful event. We find that the subconscious mind is trying to avoid remembering that which happened. This is because it can affect our moods negatively. A woman who is beaten by the lover for example for the first time will want to do anything to forget that incident. No one wants to remember such events because all it does is spoil the mood.

Rationalization is a defense mechanism that involves creating an explanation that is self serving or justifying wrong actions. A good example of rationalization is when one notices that the lover is cheating and that person decides to cheat too. Such a person will be saying that he or she is cheating because the partner is doing it.  Just as with the other defense mechanisms, it will offer satisfaction for some time. However, it will not solve any problem.

Projection means placing blame upon others, for unwanted events. For example, I may say that I am dating my secretary because my wife is very far. I am shifting the blame for my unjustifiable actions on my wife. It is also a common defense mechanism that we might find ourselves using.

This is one of the most accurate things I have ever seen.

There are two core effects in play here:
First, there’s microaggression. Basically, this is the fact that minor shit adds up to major shit if you’re constantly experiencing it from pretty much everyone around you.
Second, there’s the fact that something which seems minor to someone in a position of privilege is often very much not minor from the perspective of the actual victim.
“Tumblr overreaction” is a function of people having a reasonably safe space to sincerely vent from the net result of all the shit they’re experiencing in their lives, not people who “want to be offended by everything”.

Anyone ever consider that the second graph is in fact accurate, but not because “lol sjws get mad at everything” but instead because EVERYTHING REALLY IS THAT APPALLING?

i feel like “tumblr” is codeword for “marginalized people speaking openly about oppression” so the dichotomy is “normal people” and “oppressed people who don’t know their place” so literally if you agree with the original post i have nothing to say to you except you’re garbage

Pray for South Korea

Tears are streaming down my face. I don’t care what your belief is, please send anything, even good vibes, to these kids because oh my god they are suffering so much. The water is muddy and it’s freezing and they are dying and they’re only seventeen.. 

These children are so scared.. desperately reassuring the world that yes, they are alive, please come for them. They’re messaging their little sisters, apologizing that they won’t be able to grant a request when they’re seconds away from death and just

oh.. oh my god. oh my fucking god words cannot describe the pain I’m feeling

I didn’t know what was going on. I knew it when I read BBC news. They’re still young.. We still have hope. I wish they’re fine..
