Comparison is the Thief of Joy

Comparison is the thief of joy.

Comparison is a pretty natural part of being human. We do it to feel better about ourselves. We do it to validate that we aren’t good enough. We do it to ignore what is really going on.

Think of someone you compare yourself to. If life was a box of crayons, how many crayons do you think are in their crayon box?

How many crayons are in your box?

They are creating their masterpiece from life with their box of crayons. You are creating yours from your box of crayons.

Both are beautiful masterpieces. One is not better than the other.

What might happen if you allow the person you compare yourself to to create their masterpiece with their crayons; and give yourself permission to create your masterpiece with your crayons?

It matters!

Life is full of challenges–mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual. Being able to live from the wisdom gained from our challenges and mistakes is called emotional resilience.


As a young mother of five, I was a mess of depression and perfectionism. Now as Nana to 10, my mess has become wisdom and propelled me forward with a passion for helping families become emotionally resilient, one person at a time.

Relief is possible!
