The Comparison Trap

How many times have you compared yourself to your friends, colleagues, or even strangers using a trait that you consider desirable, for example, money or success?This comparison, known as social comparison, is a normal behaviour process where we seek to better understand our status relating to our ability, opinion, emotional reaction, and more, by comparing ourselves to other people. It can be beneficial if done in a healthy manner as it can provide us with a way to determine if we are ‘on track,’ to achieve our goals. It can also be detrimental to our mental health and self-esteem if done in a negative way.In this episode, Azandria and Madonna discusses the benefits and downfalls of social comparison, how social media can influence our self-assessment, and how sometimes the grass is not greener on the other side.
