It is not uncommon in the world of social media to periodically get down and out when comparing oneself to another’s highlight reel. Instead of looking to other feeds for inspiration, we can sometimes be left feeling overwhelmed and discouraged instead. Whether it is the endless travel photos posted or the never-ending flawless selfies, social media can be that constant reminder that someone else appears to have it all….key word being ‘appears.’
Although I am not immune to the occasional game of self-comparison, I do have a few tricks up my sleeve that has saved me a lot of self-doubt. If you regularly follow this series you may already know that in addition to being a blogger I also work in the field of psychiatry. The reason why I found myself in this field of work was due to my longstanding fascination with stories. Ever since I was a young girl I loved to read, watch films and write stories for fictional characters. There is something about each individual living a unique narrative that keeps me intrigued day after day.
