Be defensive or be agreeable?
When you act defensive about ideas or actions, it typically means some introspection is required. Depending on the situation, defensiveness can be related to jealousy and projection. Conversely, defensiveness can be rooted in insecurity and lack of self-esteem.
Are you often defensive when others encroach on how you live, your health, or your mindset? Through introspection, you’ll find answers you weren’t even looking for. And by finding solutions you weren’t expecting, you’ll move closer to resolving issues of your past and move forward into the future.
