: What does undoing mean... example "She told you to pack your bags and leave. It was your own undoing"

One's undoing is one's downfall; to say, "It was your own undoing," means that you were the cause of your own downfall. You brought this on yourself. You have no one to blame but yourself. Take a good long look in the mirror my friend. Etc.
