This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions on choosing an ideal word or phrase must include information on how it will be used in order to be answered. For help writing a good word or phrase request, see: About single word requests" – tchrist
Other expressions that might apply are:
"to make a rod for your own back", and
"to be hoist by your own petard" (a primitive bomb)
