How to Stop the Social Media Comparison Trap

Updated: Aug 4, 2020

Hello Beautiful,

Have you ever spent hours looking at people's social media feed, scrolling past perfect photos on Pinterest and thinking, "what's wrong with me, my life is not that cool, organized or exciting!"

You are not alone, there have been countless times when I felt like the only one who was not living the "perfect life". I would look around on social media and wonder how everyone had it all figured out: romantic date nights with their hubbies, amazing family trips, or personal success that seemed to happen overnight.

But ladies, here is the thing that I soon came to realize: no one is immune to the comparison trap. We only see the story that people want to tell us, and more likely the person we are comparing our self to is comparing themselves right back against us as well.

Choose to make the rest of your life the best of your life.

I decided I wanted to STOP the comparing and jealousy (I would never admit that aloud). I wanted to be happy for my ladies when they had romantic date nights, lean in to hear about their travel adventures and celebrate their success with a joyful heart.

I read books on the subjects from Happiness to Mindfulness, to unlock how to enjoy my life. I read blog post and articles. There were so many ideas and opinions that my head started to swim.

I felt overwhelmed and confused with all of the advice. I did not know where to start. With time I began to see a pattern - it did not matter if I was reading a book by a doctor, a writer, or a mommy blogger. They would agree on specific steps that would bring you growth in your life.

A little step may be the beginning of a great journey.

· Believing you deserve Happiness and Joy

· Understanding your values

· Defining your purpose and goals

· Productivity tips and hacks

· Habits to Thrive by

When I got intentional on my growth path, I had just had my third baby, unexpectedly started running a whole company and dealing with family issues. To say the least, I felt like I was drowning. Anyone of those events alone is a lot. All three of them was a downpour. I was so focused on taking care of everyone else that I forgot about me. So, thank you, Gretchen Rubin, for The Happiness Project. The insights from that book reminded me what made me happy and gave me the courage to start to explore more in-depth topics.

Here is what I want you to remember, my journey started with Happiness, but yours may start with habits or defining goals. This is what I have learned and it’s my burning desire to share it with you. There is no magic formula to life. No do 1, 2, 3, and then you will succeed.

The formula to bring you joy and purpose is as unique as you are.

I want to help you identify your own personal success formula. I want to inspire you to be brave and live life as authentic as possible. You are the creator of your own future. Helping you find the right tools along the way is how Relative Growth will support you.

Stay Curious. Stay Brave.
