I'm a participant from Switzerland, which happens to be my home country - so please excuse my English....I'm too lazy to use the dictionary:)
Lakhesi, I found your statement very interesting and I believe that a lot of people (including me) have the tendency to sabotage ourselves at times.
We seem to have a hard time to take what's ours - and once we do have it then we can't handle it.....it's almost like a ritual that we have created for ourselves.
However, I do believe that if this tendency has the power to destroy things then it must also have the power to create.
For instance, would we bother looking for answers, keeping our minds open for new things, expand our general knowledge and or participate in this very forum if we didn't have such issues?
This theory might not make sense to you guys but I think I had to remind myself that ones weakness can be ones strength at the same time.
