I did an informal study on this!

This will happen less and less as you age, but also some coping mechanisms are better than others!

Intellectualization, (this feeling helps me become a better person) helps, but is actually not the best coping mechanism. The best coping mechanisms are:

  • normalization (this happens to everyone)
  • supression (allowing yourself to think the thought but also allowing your mind to move on/mindfully being aware of the thought but refusing to allow it to occupy you)
  • Humor (omg yes LOL I DID THAT that’s funny as shit)

Hope this helps!
