Allen sought my suggestions due to his spouse’s warning – she threatened to leave him unless he stopped continuously blaming her. He admitted to regularly putting blame on her in different situations. Whether it was her slipping up, being incorrect about something, him feeling lonesome, and even having a rough day at work, he would discover a method to hold her accountable. He even reached blaming her for asking him concerns when he didn’t have the responses, or if his golf video game wasn’t up to par. Anytime he felt evaluated or lacked her approval, he would direct the blame towards her. Although he acknowledged his propensity to blame her, he had a hard time to put an end to it and could not understand the thinking behind his actions.

Through my interactions with Allen, it became clear that he had a pattern of self-criticism. He would often evaluate and blame himself, typically utilizing severe language to explain his errors. This self-negativity caused sensations of anger and disappointment, which he would then direct towards others, such as his other half or complete strangers on the road.

Through our expedition of Allen’s self-criticism, he found that he thought that by being tough on himself, he might attain control over his actions and do things completely. Nevertheless, this belief was challenged when he had a surprise while playing tennis, understanding that it was not an efficient method to inspire himself.
