We Are Our Own Worst Enemy

We Are Our Own Worst Enemy

Self-loathing is real and surprisingly common. We sometimes hate ourselves more than any person could. This phenomenon takes many shapes:

  1. Anticipating something bad to happen after something good has happened, with an assumption that your happiness will be followed by misery.
  2. Success resulting in feelings of guilt and anticipation of danger.
  3. Pleasant days ruined by chronic worry, panic or a sense of loss.
  4. Imagining the worst in others.
