In this article, Arash Emamzadeh discusses Dr Raquel Peel's research to explain the 5 reasons why some people keep sabotaging their relationships.

Here is an excerpt:

New research by Peel and Caltabiano, published in the most recent issue of the quarterly journal, Journal of Couple & Relationship Therapy, discusses reasons we self-sabotage love. Note, romantic self-sabotage refers to the use of self-destructive actions in romantic relationships intended to “impede success or withdraw effort and justify failure.”

Participants discussed five reasons why they sabotage their romantic relationships:

  1. Fear
  2. Poor Self-Esteem
  3. Trust Difficulties
  4. High Expectations
  5. Inadequate Relationship Skills
