"The Curse of Comparison" [Creator's Block Ep. 83]

"The Curse of Comparison" [Creator's Block Ep. 83] Blog Feature

Justine Timoteo Thomas

Director of Training, Host of Creator's Block Podcast, 10+ Years of Project Management Experience

August 28th, 2018 min read

Over the past week, I've enjoyed stalking Marcella's Instagram posts to live vicariously through her while she enjoyed a week-long beach vacation.

Though I'm always happy for my friends and coworkers when I see their vacation posts, I can't help but feel that ping of jealousy knowing I have a week of work ahead of me when they're lounging and relaxing.

This got me thinking: how often am I comparing my life to others? Do I live too much in a negative state, diminishing my life moments when I see others sharing seemingly perfect moments?

Comparing yourself to others (or even to the ideal version of yourself) is oftentimes rooted in insecurity and jealousy, but it also seems to happen on a daily basis.

Is there a way to avoid or change this way of thinking? Is it possible to have a positive experience when comparing yourself to others? How do we overcome comparing ourselves to our colleagues?

In this episode of Creator's Block, Marcella, and I navigate through these questions and more.
