“The more well-versed you become in understanding the most common psychological defense mechanisms you are using in your life, the healthier your relationships will be and the more empowered you become.” – Terri Cole
The truth is, we all unconsciously employ psychological defense mechanisms in our daily lives.
Projection is a particularly tricky one as it’s primary function is to keep us in the dark about our shadow selves and our true motives. It’s more complicated than straight DENIAL because we don’t just deny our unacceptable feelings or impulses we PROJECT them onto another.
In this episode of the Terri Cole Show, I am opening up a dialogue about projection and helping you get to the root of what it is and how it may be affecting you, your life, and relationships because awareness + new actions = transformation and informed decisions!
