Analysis: Self destructive behavior suggests an inward hated or anger. Trying to understand the cause of that anger or Unforgiveness of self requires contemplation and insight, which may need some guidance from a therapist or psychologist. Opening up your thoughts and feelings to a trained therapist, can lead to a road of recovery.
