Mensagem:  Our doubts are betraying and make us lose what we, otherwise could win.

Paulo, as a friend I must say that that sentence doesn't make much sense to me.

"Our doubts are betraying...." doesn't sound idiomatic for one. And "doubts are betraying...." Who? Transitive verb here.

"betraying" and "make" really don't go well together. Either you say both in the -ing form or in the plural form, otherwise it just won't flow.

And what in the world is that comma doing over there? lol


Please feel free to comment on my "rightings" as well.
