We've all been there before. You take out your phone, open your Facebook or Instagram app, start scrolling, start seeing pictures of people on vacation, new homes, new cars, date nights, cute, funny kids, lean trim physiques and you begin to think - wow, what's wrong with me, I don't have any of those things?

If you're lucky, those feelings end there, and you get back to your normal life, but sometimes the envy, jealousy, and resentment are much too intense and you end up becoming miserable and ruining your day.

The purpose of this podcast is to help give you some reasons as to why we behave this way and a practical strategy to implement so it doesn't happen that often.

Here Is What We Covered

  • Comparing is a necessary component of our human nature and part of how we form concepts. We can't and shouldn't get away from using comparisons, instead learn how to compare in a less negative way.
  • Why and how our cultural upbringing has played a role in making us chronically worried about the 'results' and 'status' or others - while taking our focus away from the only person who is truly responsible for our happiness - us.
  • Why social media is not a cause to unhappiness or why you compare yourself to others - it's the product of our human nature.
  • What, in our personal lives and experience, has been the best way of combating these feelings of "others are so successful, and I'm such a loser."
