  1. An advantage is that a defense mechanism helps prevent us from feeling very hurt. After a death or divorce, many of these mechanism are experienced. The disadvantage is that if these defense mechanisms persist too long, the person loses contact with reality and doesn't meet the challenge of going on alone.
