SELF-BETRAYAL DARKENS YOUR VISION AND PROMPTS YOUR THOUGHTS TO TURN ON BLAME AND CONDEMNATION.
Self-betrayal is an act or behaviour towards yourself or others, that goes contrary to your good judgment and core values drawing on compassion and support.
When you betray yourself, you stick illusory demeaning labels of falsehood on others, inflate their faults and highlight non-existent ones, using them to justify and deceive yourself into not helping them. For a leader who needs to motivate and support his people, this could be very unhelpful. Self-betrayal leads you on to hypocrisy, where you inflate your virtues and the value of the things justifying your self-betrayal, blunt your self-awareness and spin a web of blame.
Anger and irritation at someone else is often caused by blaming, condemning thoughts that you got up to justify your self-betrayal. Before the betrayal, your view of people was laced with compassion and a desire to be of help, but after self-betrayal, your vision darkened oppressively and your thoughts started turning on blame and condemnation.
Self-betrayal coaxes you to inflate your virtues and justify your stance. Over time, some of these self-justifying images become ingrained in your attitude and character, springing forth into your interactions and impacting them adversely.
