My therapist that I'm using defense mechanisms preventing myself from getting hurt again does this mean I'm broken?

Recently I've been engaging in defensive mechanisms I've wanted to get in a relationship of my past relationship was abusive physically and mentally but it was sauce also verbally I don't want to get into the details of abuse. Should I be more open trust considering the danger?

  • No, it means you're using defense mechanisms and being melodramatic.

  • Wow. I have the exact same problem. My therapist says I'm "closing myself off" from everyone because I was in an abusive relationship. And we may be a little cracked, or bent, or "damaged" but we're still fully functional and capable of love.
