Have you ever sabotaged yourself and you can’t figure out why?
You want to get promoted, improve your health and your relationships, achieve a big goal, and somehow you get in your own way and wreck your best-laid plans.
Self-sabotage was definitely a part of my story when I was drinking.
I would be getting ready for a big opportunity at work - a business trip or presentation - and I’d drink the night before. The next day when I was on center stage I was hung over and just trying to make it through the event.
I’d have a social gathering that I was looking forward to for months and drink and then not remember most of it.
I’d want to talk to my husband about something that was really bothering me, and I’d drink and not be able to express myself and my needs rationally and coherently.
The truth is that self-sabotage is the result of low self-esteem.
We only allow into our lives what we feel and believe we deserve.
Building self-esteem is a foundational piece of recovery work.
When you change your self-esteem, your deep, subconscious beliefs about what you think you deserve, you stop self-sabotage.
You can improve your relationships, job, ability to achieve your dreams and goals, financial abundance, the love you attract and your health.
If you don't change those beliefs, regardless of how hard you work, you will sabotage your progress in achieving them, either consciously or unconsciously.
