⭐ 1. Because it is unconscious. ⭐
Consciously, we do not want to boycott our successes, health, relationships, or wealth.
BUT unconsciously, we are acting against ourselves!
And as you know: the unconscious always wins over the conscious …
⭐ 2. Because it triggers fear in us. ⭐
Fear of failure, rejection, loss, being ridiculed …
Ultimately, the game is about our self-esteem.
And to feel valuable, we are going to do everything!
⭐ 3. Because it brings immediate relief. ⭐
It is easier not to set a boundary than to lose someone’s appreciation.
It’s easier to run away from a problem than to confront it.
Easier to pronounce a lack of time, or money … or to get out of your comfort zone.
⭐ 4. Because it is 50% right. ⭐
The Saboteur doesn’t want any changes.
Changes involve risk, uncertainty, threat, and loss of control …
And here he is right: it may go wrong. You can lose. You can miscalculate.
⭐ 5. Because others support him. ⭐
“Stick to your safety and security.”
“Follow what others are doing.”
“She/he is a good person after all.”
“You must have a serious profession.”
Our loved ones, especially our parents, are often our strongest 🙂 Saboteurs, because …
they want to protect us from all the evil and threats of this world.
