There’s a chance you know someone who has self-destructive behavior. You may have already recognized the signs and maybe you’ve talked to them about your concerns. The truth is that they might not realize what they are doing. Typically, those who have self-destruct tendencies do so for attention, self-pity, or maybe it’s because they have a load of issues they are unwilling to deal with. It’s an obvious cry for help. Instead, they choose to act out and behave in a careless manner that benefits no one, not even themselves, regardless of the people they drag down with them.
Here are 10 signs someone you know is self-destructive:
- Disregard for personal safety and security
- Careless spending
- Negative conversation
- Poor choices in friendships
- Blame others for their circumstances
- Overindulgence; purchases, eating habits, etc.
- Suicidal or bodily cutting
- Overuse of drugs and/or alcohol
- Refuse professional help or advice
- Ignore personal routine tasks; hygiene, personal finances, etc.
