- They say comparison is the thief of joy, and I certainly believe that to be true. I make a conscious effort not to compare myself to others
- I’ve noticed that since reaching my late-twenties I rarely get caught by the Green Eyed Monster. And I think that’s because I’ve come to understand my own values
- During these vulnerable moments I make a conscious effort to avoid self comparison traps, like Instagram, Facebook and YouTube
