Last week I got to interview and wax lyrical with the wonderful Lucy Sheridan - the world’s first and only Comparison Coach and co-author of ‘HigerSelfie’ which was published by Hay House (wow) earlier this year.
I loved talking to Lucy - this whole topic of ‘comparison’ that she has focused in on with her coaching is fascinating.
It is a conversation I believe we all need to be having.
And I'll admit, I didn't at first think that. When I first saw that Lucy was a ‘comparison’ coach I thought ‘huh, I guess some people are really hung up on comparing themselves andreally need help with that. NOT me…’
And then what followed was a month of having all the ways I compare myself to others slam right up against me and it triggered one of the biggest spiritual growth spurts I’ve had in a long time.
What I realised was that ‘comparison’ is not a niche issue that just a few people suffer from. It is something we are all at, whether we realise it or not.
And it has a big impact on how we live our lives, how we feel about ourselves and the expectations we put on our relationships.
And now with social media we have even more ways to constantly be measuring ourselves up against one another, fueling the fear that we are ‘not good enough’ and disconnecting ourselves from the love we could be experiencing amongst the people that surround us.
As Lucy said “comparison closes us off” and when you start to dig into how it is at play in your own life, you really start to see how much that is true.
So come and listen in and see how our conversation about 'comparison' opens things up for you too PLUS you'll hear us talk about creating our lives from scratch after hitting rock bottom and how Lucy and Jo landed a book deal with Hay House and wrote Higher Selfie in just 3 months!
So grab a cuppa and join in the conversation over here.
