When you are reaching your breaking point, what do you do to stop yourself from hurting yourself or others?
This isn't just referring to physically harming yourself or others, I'm talking about all of it: lashing out verbally, going into an emotional decline, going into apathy and losing professionalism at your work, perhaps even losing your job, your health, your family, your friends.
Do you seek professional help? Do you pray to a religious deity? Do you dial things down so you can cope with things better?
If you do lash out, how do you repair the damage you've caused?
