Reading “Atlas of the Heart” by Dr. Brene’ Brown
Stop 🛑 ✋🏼 Comparing! Chart your own unique path!
Findings of noted studies/research suggests “Comparing self with others, intentional or unintentional, is a prevasive social phenomenon.”
How we perceive ourselves (our ranking/standings) in comparison to others and “societal standards” affects humans self-concept, sense of self worth, level of aspiration, and feelings of well -being.
My thoughts: Absolutely. I agree & had an inkling this was the case. I had a brief convo with a client recently, who said you have to be married, with child at XX years old? Who created these “norms?” Don’t fall prey to conformity. Be you….your own unique, wonderful, self ❤️🙏🏽
