Defensiveness in response to confrontation can indicate underlying feelings of insecurity, guilt, or fear of judgment. It may stem from a desire to protect oneself from perceived threats to one's self-esteem or reputation. When your partner becomes defensive, it's essential to approach the conversation with empathy and understanding, focusing on active listening and validating their perspective while also expressing your own feelings and concerns assertively. Encourage open dialogue and mutual respect in addressing conflicts and finding constructive solutions together.
