Emotional Avoidance is passive way of dealing with anger and other emotions. It means simply to shut down emotionally and not deal with the problem at hand. Avoiders often deny feelings at all, deny that something is bothering them or won’t admit to vulnerability. They put up a barrier that says “stay away–I don’t want to deal with it, or, “I don’t need your help in dealing with it… I’ll do it myself in my own way in my own time.
