How to get passed saying “I probably deserve this” when something bad happens?

It seems like more and more. If something bad happens in my life I think back to a time I made someone feel bad, or maybe wronged somebody and say to myself "I deserve this" and that makes me stop seeking help. Recently I have had trouble in a course, argument with parents, car troubles, and with almost all cases I find myself saying "I had this coming, I'll just deal with it." I lose all motivation to help myself get out of a situation after this, as well.

I do NOT believe in karma so I don't know where this comes from, but does anyone else do this? Is this just a mental thing I have to force myself to get over?
