“Comparison is the thief of joy.”

–Teddy Roosevelt

Social media makes it easy to fall into the comparison trap. But when we judge our reality with someone else’s highlight reel, a whole host of negative emotions come up—jealousy, shame, defeat. So, what can we do to remind ourselves of our worthiness and steer clear of comparison?

On this edition of Inspo On-the-Go, Brooke explains why it’s a mistake to compare ourselves with other people. She describes how we can eliminate rivalry and jealousy by using our gifts to complement each other—and rise up together.

Brooke goes on to discuss the danger in letting negative self-talk take root in our minds and the power in speaking our pain and shame out loud. Listen in for Brooke’s top four strategies for avoiding the comparison trap and learn to embrace your unique purpose and celebrate the gifts God has given YOU!
