Betraying yourself has its consequences says psychologist, Yasmeen Engelbrecht

In the wellness feature, psychologist, coach and life guru Yasmeen Engelbrecht chats about the consequences of self-betrayal.

Engelbrecht says that self-betrayal can be defined as an act of deliberate disloyalty to oneself.

We've all felt and exercised self-betrayal so there's no need to be dramatic about it adds Engelbrecht.

Engelbrecht says that dishonoring yourself can come with major consequences.

The first consequence of self-betrayal is that you get good at it which is a huge problem.

Engelbrecht says that when we betray ourselves, we initiate the process of not trusting ourselves.

She adds that the last consequence of self-betrayal is an erosion of your internal world.

You cannot love another human being if you do not love yourself.
