A Hidden Cost of Chickening Out

"The fascinating thing about self-sabotaging behavior is that it actually takes an enormous amount of energy and mental stress, much more than if you just took the action you wanted or needed to do in the first place. The mental stress of feeling behind or beating yourself up for how a situation in your life could have been better is a lot more work than moving forward with your original plan of action."

From Maureen Keyte of the Spirited Woman.

Bold (for me) would be admitting this. Then actually moving forward.

Admitting which, MitMoi? That you're doing some kind of self-sabotage?
