While we all know that we should try to do what’s best for ourselves and our health, it’s much easier said than done. Even in typical daily life, there are frequent obstacles that make it difficult to make the best or right decisions, sometimes ones as simple as choosing a salad instead of a cheeseburger or being polite to coworkers when you’re in a bad mood. For those who struggle with more than just these small, mundane challenges, though, things can quickly spiral out of their control.

Difficult life events — like trauma, grief or stress — can make it infinitely harder for a person to put themselves and their well-being first. The emotional impact can lead a person down a path of self-defeating or self-destructive choices, whether they realize it is happening or not. They may be too focused on dealing with their pain or processing what they’ve been through to understand the potential consequences of their actions, or to care what the consequences might be. Soon, these behaviors become habits or patterns, and they begin to take their toll on physical and mental health. They may also begin to impact an individual’s family, friends or other loved ones. At this point, seeking professional treatment to help address the behaviors and their underlying causes can be the best — and possibly only — way to help a struggling person regain their health and happiness.
