1). Summarize the limitations of defense mechanisms.
A: In the short-term, defense mechanisms may cause an individual's mood to be lifted and allow one to endure through a difficult time. However, these mechanisms do not make the upsetting emotions disappear. Instead, they tend to mask the unwanted feelings.

A: You can talk with someone you trust as a way to positively make sense of what you are feeling. Activities such as exercising, construction, or playing a sport are also positive means to manage your emotions.
