You’ve probably done something destructive to yourself at some point. Almost everyone has. The majority of the time, it is unintentional and does not become a habit. Self-destructive behaviours are those that are likely to cause physical or mental harm. It could have been unintentional. Or perhaps you know exactly what you’re doing, but the urge is too strong to resist. It could be because of previous life experiences. It could also be related to a mental health condition like depression or anxiety.
Here are a few habits to work on avoiding as they can cause more harm than good in the long term.
- Staying Quiet – Not speaking your mind is dis-regulating your feelings as if they are not important. Tell how you really feel instead of keeping it all inside.
- Isolating Yourself – Keeping yourself away from any source of interaction can deplete your mood drastically. By staying alone in your own thought it can only worsen how you feel.
- Not Moving – Living without exercise, stretching, walking, or any sort of movement can increase level of sadness. Get outside or move for at leat 10 minutes a day to be more connected with your body.
- Not Caring – When you stop forming your own opinion you let other people control your life. Start caring what I happening in your life to take care of yourself.
Here’s what I want you to know :
- You deserve love even if you feel broken.
- Your words are not worthless.
- Let your ideas fuel passion.
Show yourself the love & priority that you’d how a good friend or significant others. You deserve to be taken care of by you.
