450. Comparison: Why We Do It + How to Deal

Update: 2021-08-101


In this episode, Krista examines the scientific root of comparison and the knock-on effects it can have on one's confidence and sense of self. 

Everyone can relate to the sensation of seeing green when a friend or someone you know or admire achieves a life milestone you're yearning for. It's human, it's real, and can be mentally excruciating – if you fall down the rabbit hole of negative self-talk.
