Stop Bad Behaviour. Know Its Causes And Effects In 2023


Do people find it easy, energizing, and refreshing to be around you?

People will unknowingly carry around bad behaviors — behaviors that hold them back from loving relationships, career growth, and simple life happiness.

They don’t realize they have infected themselves with negative behaviors that offend or even push people away.

Most of us do a few things to annoy people, especially in our close relationships.

It’s impossible to be human and not drift into occasional bad moods, childish reactions, or selfishness.

But sometimes these behaviors become habitual.

We adopt them as part of our daily interactions and personal operating systems.

What Causes Bad Behavior?

Are wondering, “How do you explain bad behavior?” There are number reasons someone might develop negative behaviors as adults. Let’s look at a few of them.

  • Perhaps a person never learned emotionally mature behaviours or they weren’t modeled by their parents. The parents inadvertently gave their seal of approval to certain negative actions. Therefore the child keep doing them through adulthood.
  • A mental health issue or personality disorder can be the cause of unpleasant and different behaviors.
    • Sometimes, positive traits can create a smokescreen for bad behavior in adults, so we give ourselves permission to act out in one area because we are so good most of the time.
  • Sometimes the people around us let us “get away” with behaviors by not setting boundaries or consequences.

But remember, the behaviors you consistently reflect to the world are the tangible measure of your character and maturity.

Yes, sometimes our emotions do get the best of us. But there are many compelling reasons to drop consistentbad behaviour habits and create positive new ones.

Bad behavior draws you to the world’s bottom feeders. Like attracts like. If you want to have relationships with mature, emotionally healthy, authentic people, you must consistently be one yourself.
Bad behavior is a prelude to poor self-esteem and mood disorders. If your behaviors are pushing people away, causing problems at work, and making you unhappy, eventually it will take a toll on your emotions and feelings of self-worth.
 Bad behavior is frequently a symptom of a bigger issue. If we regularly act out in inappropriate way, it’s often a call for further self-awareness. Something deeper (unresolved anger, pain, fear, etc.) may be behind those poor relational skills.
Bad behaviors negatively impact those you love most. Spouses, children, and close family members might be deeply hurt or embarrassed by your behavior habits. But they live with you and often must tolerate these actions. Children in particular don’t have the emotional skills to implement appropriate boundaries or express their frustrations about adult bad behavior.

The behaviors we’re referring to here aren’t the grossly horrendous actions that could get you arrested (abuse, cruelty, cheating, etc.).

We’re talking about the small bad behaviors that are like a thousand tiny arrows hurled over months and years.

    • They slowly drain the mutual respect, ease, and natural pleasure of relationships.
  • They cause others to be hyper-vigilant and on edge, waiting for the anticipated conduct or lack of conduct.

As always, the first step toward change is awareness.
