Stop self sabotaging.
Read that again.....
Self sabotage: the act of destroying or damaging something deliberately so that it does not work properly (courtesy of Miriam Webster Dictionary)
Self sabotaging behaviors : procrastination, comfort eating, utilizing drugs, alcohol, self injury such as cutting yourself.
I’ll add my own; stagnation, isolation, depression, toxic, neglecting oneself and doing the same thing over and over again, but desiring change.
Rose, a couple days ago. I found myself doing this. I went into a place in my mind and it was a low corner. A dark, ashy and gloomy corner where I sat and the more I sat in this place in my mind the more sadden I felt. I usually appreciate dearly my alone time, but this time I was not alone.
My dark thoughts and depression wanted in. They weren’t too far from me.
How have you been since this month started? This week? Do you find yourself harming you? I know you are probably thinking “that’s too extreme. I don’t cut myself girl” and a knife may not be a getaway for you or an object you run too, but are you thinking low of yourself? Did you start believing and then along the way shrugged your shoulders like “if it happens I guess?”
Did you stop practicing what you were preaching? Are the things God told you in secret via dreams and visions all look too much for you? See, that’s not the issue.
The real issue is your mind playing tricks on you. Your nasty thoughts that’s overwhelming you. You have the power to control those thoughts. You don’t have to sabotage yourself anymore. Yes, it’s so much easier to lay down in discomfort and pity (I’ve done it)
But, honestly. You are not hurting anyone but yourself.
Here’s some leading causes that may be the main issue to your self sabotage.
Rose, I love you, but you have to love you enough to get out of the hole you dig. I know we LOVE to ask God to get us out, but 90% of the time he has given us tools to get out, so what’s the delay? We are lazy! We are afraid of leaving what makes our dark corner feel great.
3 John 1:2 Beloved, I pray that in every way you may prosper and enjoy good health, as it goes well with your soul.
John 10: 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Sis, get out of your dark corner and create a new corridor dazzled with lights from above after all you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. Be encouraged!
