A command from one person to another to immediately humble him/herself and/or to desist from a detestable course of action. The phrase is an alternate, but more forceful way, of stating the slang, "Slow your roll". "Break Yourself" metaphorically alludes to a person as vehicle in transit that needs to BREAK suddenly in order to avoid an upcoming and potentially hazardous path or course of action.
