Don’t water your weeds. — Proverb

How come we do things that we know will be harmful to us emotionally, or we sometimes sabotage the very thing that will help us? This is what we called a self-filling prophecy. We say that negative things will happen to us, or we won’t make a real effort in a project because we think it is not going to work anyhow. So when we believe that it won’t work, we find a way to sabotage the project while at the same time thinking that we’re not the problem and the problem is the project. Although a part of us wants to proceed with the project, we don’t want to admit that we’re being resistance. It is an internal conflict, which only keeps us off track when we know it is the right thing to do.
