Do you ever feel like you don’t measure up? Have you ever felt left out because you weren’t invited to a night out? Does scrolling on Instagram sometimes feel draining and depressing? Do you ever see a 22 year old phenom on Instagram and think, “How the heck is she there already? I’m older than her, and I haven’t achieved half of what she has!”
I want you to know: this is completely normal.
The data suggests that 95% of American women compare themselves to other women.
We compare ourselves with others — which means we live beneath our potential. We set another person as the ceiling of what we can achieve. We make them the goal.
That’s the bad news.
The good news?
You may have more potential than the competition has! A lot of women set these influencers as their ceiling, but in reality, they might be your floor.
