You ask: What do I mean by resistance? What do I mean by defendedness?
I mean any thought, action, belief, response, idea, attitude, intent, personality trait, behavior, habit, expectation, perspective, etc. that you use in order to feel safe; in order to feel not vulnerable; in order to hide.
Examples? Pretty much anything. You can be nice, and it can be a protection. You can be nice and it can be heart-felt. It isn’t so much the actual behavior or attitude, it’s the purpose for the behavior or attitude that merits your attention. Vulnerability is your birthright; allow.
