> the trigger was similar in a way to what you're describing. I'm entering a new business and we are at the point where we're talking money. I don't like to talk money, and what I realized is that I REALLY don't like it because it tends to take me to that core place where I can feel worthless about myself. I feel like I have to prove I'm worth a certain amount and I work myself into a tizzy thinking "Who do I think I am, saying I'm worth X amount of dollars?"

Teasing of course, but fear of success has held me back for years because it reflects back to my own feelings of worthiness. I've even been known to sabotage myself. But now I know this, and I'm going to push through this and be successful!

Yes - this is all about worthiness for me. I'm investing a lot of myself in this - my time, my creativity, my energy; and I'm feeling extremely needy about getting an "attagirl", but also, there's been no material returns for all my efforts yet. I'm nervous about blindly putting all this effort into something that has no tangible benefits yet. It's kind of bleeding the pleasure out of the process if I think about it too much.

I think I need to take a day off from it. I've been spending time every single day on this hobby/business since October. Maybe I'm just burned out?

Thanks, Antigua.
