The Third Horseman is DEFENSIVENESS
Defensiveness is a self-protection mechanism which comes out in the form of moral outrage or evoking a sense of victimhood in an attempt to fend off a perceived attack.

It is so frustrating when you can see a solution to something or view a particular situation in a different way to your partner and they just don’t get it. This type of frustration is the foundation for many an argument.

The killers lurking in your relationship disguise themselves as something far less dangerous than they actually are. As a result, we often misunderstand their power until it is almost too late.
