Standard Office Procedures: Ep. #45 -  Signs of Self-Sabotage and How to Stop with Cassidy Dear

Instead of completing an important project, you procrastinate. 

Instead of making a career switch, you continue at a job you despise.

Instead of accepting help, you push people away.

Does this sound like you or someone you know? If so, these may be symptoms of self-sabotage.

The reasons for self-sabotage vary, and it could look different for every person — but at its core, self-sabotage comes from feelings of low self-esteem and lack of self-worth. These feelings can become so internalized that when you’re on the cusp of succeeding at something, you veer in the other direction, derailing any positive outcome.

But here’s the good news – there’s a way to stop, and this week's episode can help you on that journey to a healthier you.

Cassidy Dear of Huntsville Psychotherapy and Counseling Services joins Grace and Shannon this week to share her professional expertise and advice about how to deal with self-sabotaging behavior.
