Who could possibly imagine that a thing like self-sabotage can actually drive you to personal growth?
Moreover, addiction to drugs (believed to be a kind of self sabotage) can also help in self expression and personal growth. You will have your eyebrows raised at that. Don’t get me wrong, I am not promoting narcotics. It’s just a scientifically proven fact that some drugs turn on the switch to imagination.
There was this woman who became addicted to drugs because it gave her the feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction. Her doctors tried to explore the reasons behind the drawing force and they found that she was alone and felt bored most of the times. This feeling turned her more anxious and she dreaded the pressure in her job. She once had a chance to go on a vacation with her friends where she had a great time.
There was no pressure and no worry in the world while she was on this vacation. By the end of the vacation, she started to feel low again so she took the drug to get that timeless experience once again where she had no responsibilities and can let her imagination fly free. Nevertheless, drugs including sleeping pills will always have some side-effects. Knowing that, she took the drug because that imaginative feeling of being free will always return.
