Thoughts from Kay...
Tired of performing? Feeling weighed down by the pressure to be Pinteresting? Does your friend’s wardrobe, body, marriage, paycheck, vacation plans, or photoshoot-worthy home décor leave you wishing your life looked more like that?
You’re not alone.
With its focus on smarter, faster, thinner, and ever-better, our cultural obsession with comparison is undercutting relationships and sapping contentment. Our friends become our audience (or judges), and our titles, activities, even kids become part of our brand. Factor in social media’s constant reminder of what everyone else is doing, and no wonder we feel drained, discontent, and isolated.
Thankfully, we don’t have to live this way!
I see comparison stealing joy all the time, and sometimes I even let it steal my joy! This was a great reminder on how we need to stop comparing ourselves to others. In the world of social media these days, it has become far to easy to get involved in the mommy wars, to try to one up each other or feel down when we don’t quite measure up to someone else (in our own minds). Kay uses humor to make light of this growing problem. If you find yourself being caught in the comparison trap, I highly recommend this book!
