Post Malone has released a cover of Hootie and the Blowfish’s 1995 hit song “Only Wanna Be With You” ahead of his performance at the Pokémon Day 25th-anniversary virtual concert on Saturday, February 27th.

His belief that we need defense mechanisms to protect ourselves from knowing just how much we are possessed by sexual and aggressive drives is now generally refuted. However, there is still relatively widespread acceptance that defense mechanisms serve an adaptive purpose. Having a healthy set of defense mechanisms can help you keep in check your anxiety, frustration, low self-esteem , and despair over the losses that life occasionally deals you. One research team in particular seeks to discover the hidden truth behind our tendencies to hide the truth from ourselves.
