Day 2975: Self-destructive

When people in therapy tell me they are self-destructive, I think:

  • that is how they are telling the story about themselves for now,
  • it might be a helpful insight,
  • it might lead to hopelessness,
  • it might be a self-fulfilling prophecy,
  • it’s not destructive that they are in therapy,
  • there are other things they are doing that are not self-destructive, and
  • they are not destroyed.

I don’t think it’s self-destructive to share the inspiration for today’s blog title:

Is it self-destructive to share all of my recent images?

Is anybody being self-destructive in today’s video, a compilation of home news bloopers?

It would not be self-destructive to leave your thoughts and feelings about this “Self-destructive” post in the comments section, below. It’s also not self-destructive to express gratitude, so thanks to all who help me create these daily blogs, including YOU.

  1. Thank goodness the self destructive attitudes of some do not influence us all!

    I love your winter pictures, Ann. They’re very calming and perhaps suggestive for a painting.

  3. I think there are aspects of me I’d like to destroy but I worry about the dangers of taking out the positive things as well.

  4. perhaps it can be reinvented as ‘self-constructive.’ I believe that we are all works in progress.

  5. Humans are probably are self-destructive by nature, but not Harley. Turns out he may have another distant cousin at the UK Foreign Office.

  6. I love the photos of the snow right up to the waters’ edge. Gorgeous! And I’m so very pleased that you are there as support and encouragement to your clients, Ann. Such difficult times for people, and your care and concern must be of great comfort.

  7. I made it all the way to the bottom, Ann, and the post did not self-destruct!
