Being out of touch with one's own wants and needs is a primary way to self-sabotage.

Dear Dr. Romance:

What causes one to constantly sabotage oneself? Why would someone constantly put up their own roadblocks?

Dear Reader:

Being out of touch with one's own wants and needs is a primary way to self-sabotage. Getting in your own way is all about how you relate your yourself. In addition to not managing your time effectively, there are many ways you can stop yourself from getting the most out of life—not enjoying what you have or have accomplished; not being able to get motivated, or finish what you begin; and having a negative focus, which leads to discouragement, anxiety, despair and even depression.  "Getting Out of Your Way"  and "Detox Your Life" which will help you change many inner roadblocks.  It Ends With You, Grow Up and Out of Dysfunction.
