  1. I have a comment on one of your articles. This was the only way that I was able to contact you successfully, so my apologies.

    If you don’t mind, I see a flaw within this article. I agree that avoidance behaviors are a type of coping mechanism. However, you must take notice that there are both negative and positive types of coping mechanisms, in which avoidance behaviors fall under the negative.
    One can start avoiding some situations to reduce anxiety and distress for a temporal amount of time. However, it is strongly likely that, eventually, these small situations will inevitably start to increase. Once small and deamed insignificant avoidances will escalate into a repetitive cycle, where even situations that are unnecessary to avoid, will be avoided, thus worsening the state of distress previously inhibited.
    Once again, to restate, Avoidance Behaviors are under the umbrella of negative coping mechanisms. The way you worded it seemed as if it was neutral, and ineffective to creating future occurrences involving anxiety and inducing stress. It would be helpful to also include the positive forms of coping mechanism that will help one to get through a situation instead of avoiding it completely; such as humming, tapping one’s hands or feet, listening to music, etc.
    Thank you.
