What do you think of when you think of defence? It can be something that a country puts up when they’re being attacked; or maybe something we do to protect ourselves in certain situations; there are also plants and animals that have defensive mechanisms as part of their structure.
Essentially defence is there for our protection, however we can sometimes go overboard on defence and it means that we miss out on experiences because we’re too busy trying to protect ourselves.
I think it’s important to make sure that we know what we need to defend ourselves against. By making ourselves aware we are less likely to miss out. When we are defending ourselves we are likely to hide away from others and situations; again by doing this we are likely to stay in a scared situation and will find it difficult to build ourselves.
I would agree that defence is necessary but we need to try to build our strength up as well and hiding won’t often help that.
