What are you looking for?

My best friend and I just talked a while ago, she's in college to be a psychologist. She asked me, what are my defense mechanisms? I was like, "I dont know, maybe Im in denial? cause when people telling me things about myself, future or family, I would brush it off or try to reason them out." She interrupted me and said, "You have Projection." I asked why, she then told me that I project too much about everything and always thinks that whenever or when i'm about to try something new , I would always say "I can't do this and that because of this, I dont know if I can, I just can't" Like I would always expect the worst in it, but haven't tried it yet.
And I thought about it. Like what's the reason why I'm like this? or why Projection are one of my defense mechanism. Then, I thought about my past traumas from my close relatives whom I thought were nice. They caused me a LOT of pain. I was just a kid, back then, and they destroyed me. And now, I'm living of a broken one. Still, gathering the pieces of me.
