When you compare yourself to others, does it make you feel better or worse? 

This episode is all about overcoming compare and despair syndrome. You’ve probably heard this term thousands of times and noticed yourself doing it quite a few times too.  

In this episode, I’m talking about why we do it and how to stop doing it. You might think that means that I’m going to teach you how to stop comparing altogether, but that’s actually not true. Comparing can be helpful, we just have to learn how to do it without despair. 

I’m sharing some important questions for you to ask yourself as you reflect on your comparison habits, and giving you some despair disruptors that you can use to compare without letting the despair creep in. 

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

As you listen to this episode, I want you to answer the questions that I ask. You will see that comparing does not have to lead to despair and that you can actually use comparison to improve. 

Your homework after listening to this episode is to open your Instagram feed and notice how you feel as you scroll through it. What makes you jealous? What makes you wish you could have what they have? This will help you see your internal desires and recognize what you really want!
