    I Can’t Stop Comparing Myself To My Friends! Ft. Emily Dolan, LMSW

    I Can’t Stop Comparing Myself To My Friends! Ft. Emily Dolan, LMSW

    Why do we ALWAYS tend to catch ourselves in the comparison game?  And why does social media make it so incredibly easy to compare our lives to someone else's highlight reel?  In this episode I sit down with Licensed Social Worker, Emily Dolan, to talk all things confidence and comparison.  We read listener submitted questions including feeling that others are "further along in life," being the only single friend in a group filled with couples, comparing present self to our past self, and SO much more.  Emily takes us through what she has seen within her professional and personal life when it comes to comparing our life to someone else's, how it impedes our self esteem, and what to do about it.
