Why am I never good enough?
Thoughts of “why am I never good enough” can be internalized feelings caused by external conditioning or events. For example, an over-achiever may beat themselves up in ongoing attempts at winning, succeeding, or being perfect. This need to constantly prove themselves may be driven by feelings of inadequacy or a perception that love is conditional and based on outward achievement.
What are co-occurring disorders?
Co-occurring disorders, also called dual diagnoses, are simultaneous mental disorders and substance abuse issues. Substance and alcohol use disorders can often coincide with anxiety disorders, depression, schizophrenia, and personality disorders. A dual diagnosis requires a comprehensive treatment plan that will address both mental disorders and substance use disorders.
What is emotional pain?
Emotional pain may include feelings of isolation, loneliness, sadness, depression, or grief. It can also include a range of unpleasant feelings and associations including anxiety, stress, hopelessness, low self-esteem, worry, anger, or disconnectedness. While we think of emotional pain as non-physical, it is physical and resides in the brain’s limbic system, impacting those it affects neurologically and chemically.
What is attachment disorder?
Attachment disorder begins at infancy and results in children having difficulties forming healthy attachments to parents and caregivers. It may be caused by parents not meeting a child’s basic needs for nurturing, comfort, and/or love. A person with attachment issues may continue to have unhealthy boundaries and attachments throughout childhood and into adulthood. Attachment disorder is thought to occur along a spectrum that ranges from emotional detachment to insecure over-attachment.
What is tough love in a relationship?
Tough love is an idea that strict discipline is the way to reinforce ideas of accountability. Tough love, in its most negative application, can be stern, unsentimental, withholding, or even abusive.
What is the psychodynamic approach?
Psychodynamic therapy reviews a person’s past experiences to determine how those experiences might be informing present life situations. Past abuse or neglect may influence one’s ability to have healthy relationships regardless of someone's intentions. Psychodynamic therapy is an effective part of a substance use disorder treatment plan in that it connects the client’s past to their present.
When a relationship is toxic?
Toxic relationships are indicated by some or all of these traits: a lack of mutual support, negative and unproductive communication, patterns of control and jealousy, and the toleration of negative or harmful behaviors out of a fear of rejection. Toxic relationships may also be one-sided and disrespectful. People with childhood trauma or neglect can find themselves in toxic relationships as adults.
