The Comparison Trap: My Confession

I going to make a bit of a confession on how I fell into the comparison trap and how I fixed it.

I’ve done a lot of things wrong in the past and it can be frustrating and discouraging.

I’ve also done a BUNCH of things right but that’s only because I fixed the things, I did wrong.


Struggles and Triumphs: My Journey

I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve made my fair share of mistakes in life. There were moments when I felt like I was stuck in a never-ending cycle of self-doubt and comparison. It was a tough place to be.

However, I’ve also experienced some significant victories along the way. These triumphs didn’t come easy, but they were possible because I decided to confront my past actions and make a change.


The Big Mistake: Trying to Fit In

One of the BIGGEST mistakes I made was trying to convince myself that I needed to be like everyone else online.

It’s natural to look at our peers and think that they have it all together. Their makeup is always flawless, they have a large social media following and making huge financial claims, and success seems to follow them everywhere they go.

We secretly want what they have. We see their life as picture-perfect, and WE WANT IT!

Facing Reality: A Come-to-Jesus Moment

I want you to sit down and listen to what I am about to tell you. We are about to have a come-to Jesus’ moment. (This is what I tell my kids when they need to hear the truth)

You are enough. You have everything you need to do anything you want. Just be yourself, nobody likes a copycat. People can see right through that. What people relate to is authenticity, real people, people who are down to earth and don’t pretend to be something or someone they’re not.


I used to compare myself to other influencers and thought that I needed everything to look polished and perfect.  What I learned was that trying to keep up with the Jones is exhausting and getting me nowhere.

Focusing on Personal Growth and Authenticity

Instead of constantly comparing yourself to others and feeling inadequate, focus on your personal growth and authenticity. Be proud of who you are, with all your imperfections and quirks. When you embrace your true self, you’ll find that people will connect with you on a deeper level because authenticity is magnetic.


I’m going to encourage you to let your freak flag fly and be your authentic self.
