Blaming: life seems easier when it’s not your fault. It is easy to blame other people, outside circumstances, governments, the economy; whatever your preference is. But it is a disempowering approach which robs you of your power.
Placating: avoiding conflict can seem like a good strategy when you’re already feeling pain. But it is a short term solution that just creates more problems further down the line.
Computing: you may know someone who becomes totally logical when they become stressed. This strategy is about becoming dissociated from the source of the pain. When you think logically you can’t feel the pain of emotion.?
Distracting: keeping busy is a sure fire way to stop you thinking about the pain. It can take the form of being busy at work, staying late and bring work home. It can take the form of being busy at home. Never taking a minute to sit and relax. There is always something that needs to be done in the home. Or, it can be always having something on in your social calendar.

Pain is an interesting phenomenon.
Have you noticed how some people actively seek it, some are even willing to pay for it, some seem to be constantly in it and we can feel it physically and emotionally?
