How to Approach Self-Sabotage
May 08, 2024 Episode 41
Flynn Skidmore

In this episode, we explore the concept of self-sabotage, analyzing how our internal experiences, like shame and fear, often reflect our unconscious desires. We’ll look at how these patterns can be traced back to our early years, especially from infancy to about seven years old—a critical period when we were learning to navigate our surroundings. I emphasize that self-sabotage isn't inherently bad; it’s a survival mechanism we’ve developed.

I explain that transforming these patterns is entirely possible by approaching self-sabotage with warmth, love, and curiosity. By understanding and accepting these patterns, we can begin to change them, but it requires engaging in deep emotional work and taking decisive actions in our daily lives.

To wrap up, I encourage you to think about how you might consciously cultivate a new environment for yourself where positive internal experiences are more frequent. Join me as we delve into these complex issues, providing insights and actionable advice on using self-sabotage as a tool for personal growth and self-discovery.
