"Am I self-sabotaging, or am I just noticing red flags?"

"Is it my anxiety, or is my intuition trying to tell me something?"

Sound familiar? If you're anxiously attached, there's a great possibility that you struggle to tell the difference between your intuition and your anxiety. Throw in the fact that you're now aware that you're a self-saboteur, and things can get confusing quickly.
