Self/ Success Saboteurs…

What is self-destructive behaviour?

  1. Selfdestructive behaviour is any behaviour that is harmful or potentially harmful towards the person who engages in the behaviour
  2. Selfdestructive behaviours exist on a continuum, with suicide at one extreme end of the scale. Selfdestructive actions may be deliberate, born of impulse, or developed as a habit.

Here is a good article link from Psychology Today on this subject.

What is a self-saboteur?
