    Excellent & timely article. I am working on many of my dysfunctional coping skills in DBT & find self sabotaging is a huge problem.

    Not to nitpick, but you have a few errors that detract from your wisdom. Your proofreader must have been sleepy.
    –voice in their (should be “there”)
    –at it’s finest (should not have an apostrophe)
    –there only purpose (should be “their”)

    Again, thanks for insightful article.

        You’re welcome! They are easy errors to make. I just didn’t want them to detract from your fantastic article. People w/OCD (Count me in again) often can’t “see” past the little fleas on the big dog!

        Everyone should watch your insightful video TWICE & take notes. There is a lot to think about & digest & put into practice daily to improve your thought patterns, communication skills & consider the consequences of your words & actions. Ask yourself the question: Will this behavior or words (usually spoken in anger at the moment that can be hurtful or judgmental) help me reach my ultimate goal of a happy & fulfilled marriage (for example)?

        Pause & ask yourself if the behavior or words will help you meet your ultimate goal (keeping your job; having a good relationship w/your children/in-laws/neighbor/mail delivery person/fill in the blank!

        Very important guide to live by.
