Warning. This audio is controversial.
I’m going to come right out and say this: I don't believe in self-sabotage. There I said it.
YOU don’t do these shitty things ‘to yourself’. You have a brain that is misfiring. YOU don’t drink and drive, Wolfie does. Alcohol does that.
You being here, listening to this, reading the emails, it means something. It means you are worth it. And you know it.
I mention several links in this audio, more than I usually do (I don’t know why!), including:
Duck Ponderings (free, behind-the-scenes audios) > link
SP211 – The Sprinkler (how to avoid dealing with someone (or some situation) that is making you feel nutty) > link
SP205 – Fix Your 5 Percent (in all disagreements, in all of the criticism – there is 5% that's you. You can fix that. and when you fix that, EVERYTHING changes) > link
Feedback from listeners:
Athena: “Your talk on self sabotage really hit home for me. It was like you were talking directly to me! It gave me a different perspective, and to cut myself some slack. I’ve been feeling like I’ve been resetting a lot because I just didn’t want sobriety bad enough. But you’re right, that’s bullshit. I have a brain that asks for it, the further I get from day one, the quieter that voice will get. I’m really excited for that quiet, Belle.”
Butterflygal3: “I am so happy you did this podcast on self sabotage. This is the state I am in. Constantly depressed and having sooo much trouble quitting. I felt comforted hearing you tell me it’s not my fault because I do feel I am weak and maybe I don’t want it enough. But the reality is I do … I want a total transformation in my life, and for my 3 wonderful children. Thanks Belle. You’re amazing.”
