Looking Out for Self Sabotage

Overcoming anxiety or depression is tough and sometimes even frightening work. (Even positive change evokes fear in most people!) As a result, people tend to resist, avoid, or procrastinate working on their problems. This means you have to be on the lookout for self-sabotage. Self-sabotage describes the things you do to keep from addressing and correcting your problems, and it appears in various forms and disguises.
