Understanding Denial as an Emotional Defence Mechanism


Denial is a very common coping mechanism that we use to avoid facing uncomfortable scary emotions and truths in life. It acts as a buffer that softens the sometimes harsh realities of life, but it can become a crutch that disconnects us from reality, stagnating our personal growth. In the video below I talk about how this coping mechanism works and why we use it avoid confronting scary emotions and truths about ourselves, others and life.
