How do you self-sabotage?

How do you sabotage yourself?

“Self sabotage is like driving with your foot on the accelerator and the brake pedal at the same time.”

Self-sabotage refers to behaviours or thought patterns that hold you back and prevent you from doing what you want to do.

Most people are escaping feeling their emotions by watching television, going to movies, scrolling, reading books, drinking, using prescription and non-prep drugs, exercising and a whole host of other activities to take attention off emotional pain long enough so it can be pushed back down.

One of the emotions strongly linked to self- sabotage is guilt. The self-sabotaging behaviours allow you to “feel” guilty.

Most of the time this is your normal operating system and when you haven’t felt guilty for a while it’s like your operating system subconsciously tells you to sabotage. It’s a way of maintaining homeostasis in your body. Those “feelings” are what is normal for you. You internally breathe a sigh of relief because you feel guilty again. To switch from feeling guilty to being kind to yourself can be quite a jump, but it can be done. You will have to practise, new thoughts, new feelings and new actions and rewire your neural pathways to create this shift.

It is possible to empower yourself and release self-sabotage, feeling guilty and start to feel great.

My experience in Africa…

What do you welcome? I was so moved by my recent trip to Kenya. (Here's a great video of me in a village in Kilifi)  Everyone I spoke to smiled, was friendly and open, from the hotel to the villages - every interaction was warm and welcoming. When I caught a cab to...
