Do you ever find yourself wanting to do good, wanting to make positive change in your life and wanting to be a better person, yet in the end, falling short of the better you that you hoped you’d be? To some extent, we all engage in self-defeating behaviors that put the brakes on our being the best versions of ourselves.

Why do we sabotage ourselves? Shouldn’t we be our own most trusted partner in navigating a good and admirable life? What’s the connection between self-sabotage and the Yetzer Ha Ra? What is the Yetzer Ha Ra anyhow?


The questions are many. Listen to Soul Talk with Rabbi David Aaron and Leora Mandel to get a better understanding of how you can successfully sabotage self-sabotage.
