Self-sabotage

There is this thing I got curious about. Why do we post our conversations with God on social media? Isn’t it supposed to be a private conversation between God and the individual?

So I said this very short prayer. It rhymed. And I thought, “that was quite delicious.”

Next steps – post it on Facebook.

But wait, shouldn’t that remain a prayer? A conversation between my God and I? If I post it on Facebook, is it still a prayer, or just another poem? By making public what should be private, just to get some nods from strangers, I think I will change the course of that prayer from Heaven and direct it to Earthlings. I believe my prayer will lose its potency as soon as I do that. Are the ‘likes’ I’m gonna get worth it?

I think by doing that, I have engaged in self-sabotage.

Each time I tell myself I will read that article tomorrow and chose to watch Big Bang Theory instead, I am engaging in self-sabotage.

Every time I convince myself I should eat that muffin even though I am not hungry and I’m going straight to bed, I am engaging in self-sabotage.

Self-sabotage is the worst because the evil we do to ourselves doesn’t feel so evil-ish because we are the ones doing the evil, not that  next door neighbour that envies our new ride.

So, this is a girl that wakes up every morning wondering 'How can I make my lil corner of the universe a bit more beautiful?' And I believe that is by spreading a little bit of kindness everyday. I love God to bits majorly because He loved me first. Drama has a way of finding me...or I find it...I'm not sure anymore these days. Mostly, even I don't know much about me, I'm still on that path of self-discovery but one thing I have found out so far is that no matter how many dragons breathe fire her way, this Rockstar is totally slaying them. Family is first, no contest! You have an idea on how to spread some kindness or something you want us to talk about, hit me nicely at gatlin_may@yahoo.com And thanks for stopping by!

  1. Ah! This is so true. I had a lenghty conversation with a friend who is constantly self-sabotaging. I call it ‘using your hand to do yourself’
    I also need to work on that late night-binging though. Not cute
