Stop the Compare and Despair CycleJan 15, 2024

Compare and despair is the tendency to constantly compare ourselves to others, but not in a positive way. We feel that we’re not measuring up in some way to others and we despair over our perceived failures.
In our current society, the status or accomplishments of others is readily accessible. And I would say that this almost non-stop barrage of information can be unhealthy because it can lead to almost non-stop feelings of inadequacy. But there are ways we can stop the compare and despair cycle, starting first with consciously disengaging from it, and eventually, subconsciously disengaging as well. Let’s talk about it.
