The Cycle Of Self-Sabotage

The Cycle Of Self-Sabotage

 

Saboteur

 

When you begin to feel threatened.

 When the you that isn’t you shows up.

 When the you that isn’t you is too afraid.

 When the you that isn’t you has to win or escape.

 When the you that isn’t you is trapped.

 When the you that isn’t you is defeated.

 When the you that isn’t you gives in and YOU become the you that isn’t.

People who are successful, entrepreneurs on the rise and celebrities are especially vulnerable but everyone does it. Their train wrecks make the front page news of the tabloids; yours are noticed by those closest around you. You undermine yourself, and you do it regularly.

Your personal train wreck is as silent and hidden as an underground subway moving at lighting speed.

It is like getting on a roller coaster and not being able to get off until you are at the end, which you describe as having a bad day, a bad month or year, or a bad break.

It is the beginning of when you start not to be yourself.

Everyone does it to some degree, unless we have learned how to recognize and change the process.

This dizzying ride is your self-sabotage process that waits until the conditions are just right.

It will wait while you learn to be more positive, mindful, sober, and empowered by self-compassion.

You will never know when it starts to roll, but one day you will realize that a slow erosion has taken you from the practices and learning that seemed so profound.

The erosion is unnoticeable at first, but you are diverted an hour at a time and a day at a time, and life speeds by while you try to find the time when you used to be mindful and remember the exercises that made you so significantly more positive.

It can often seem as though you never learned to meditate, and that being positive really is unrealistic.

Meditation, mindfulness, and stress reduction will keep you from getting on the ride, but they do not change the reality of its existence.  It will idle and wait as long as it takes for just the right circumstances to start moving.

Your process of self sabotage has to be recognized and disassembled.  It also has to be replaced, and everything you have learned will help you create the new meaning making system that is the only thing that will replace it.

But you have to know what the loops of your this ride of sabotage are, and you have to replace them.

They are the remnants of old ways of trying to find meaning in your life that never worked.
