Wake-Up Call Weds: Facebook & Your Inner Comparison Queen

Dear One,

The other day I was feeling a little bit blue (ok maybe a lot blue). I was having one of those days…you the kind..where your Inner Mean Girl has hijacked your day and the Big Fat Lies tape is playing in your head like heavy metal blaring from an 80s boom box. Ouch!

So I did something kinda ridiculous in hindsight…I logged onto Facebook and saw my “news feed” featuring highlights from everyone else’s seemingly perfect life. From “I lost 25 pounds by eating chocolate every day” to pictures of travels from all around the world to “OMG, Oprah just called!”

My Inner Comparison Queen came in with a wrecking ball…has this ever happened to you?

On today’s show, we’re going to talk about those pesky Inner Comparison Queens and Kings that can use Facebook as a torture device…and then we’re going to have a little dance party to shake it all out!

With a little shimmy and lots of sparkles,

  1. I needed this bad! Comparing myself to others in my field—although I have some amazing other things in my life that they do not! I needed a perspective change

    Loved it! Thanks for the inspiration!

    For some reason, it’s stopping at the 9:15 mark. 🙁

    I don’t really compare myself to others. I am just going through a LOT. Trying to break through the last wall and I can tell there’s a lot of pain behind it…Working to accept fully, forgive entirely and move forward! In the mean time, later today, going to Zumba and help a friend grow her Zumba following. 🙂 THANK YOU, Amy, for all you do! You are awesome!!

    Bella made me smile! I’m learning some new skills in hopes of helping my son with a longstanding health problem. Resistant Roberta says I won’t be able to do it, nothing will make it better, no point in trying, so forget the whole thing, plus I am too old to make the effort worthwhile. After seeing Beautiful Bella who knows anything is possible and that age is no barrier to living joyfully, I know I can be open to whatever happens.
