  1. I really enjoyed this post a lot. You make a great point! I try to remind myself that what I see on Instagram or elsewhere isn’t always true in real life. Your post really made some great points and I love that you included links to other sources related to the topic. Great post!

    1. Thank you! Instagram just creates a certain illusion. If we remember that it’s intentionally curated and not real life, that will ease our urge to compare!

  2. This is such an important reminder! The comparison of looking at so many ideal lives on social media can be so harmful on mental health. This is a great reminder for us and has great tips.

  3. Thanks for your insight! I also try to remind myself that what I see on social media is not always true to real life. Sometimes it’s also like what their lives look like which is easy to compare, so in that case it’s also important to remember that we’re all really in different stages and things in our lives and that’s ok.

    1. Great point! Not just comparing our physical appearance, but the urge to compare our lives is very real. It’s definitely best to remind ourselves that we’re all at different stages in life, and ALSO that what you see is just a highlight reel. Most people aren’t showing you the ugly moments of their lives! We’re doing better than we think 🙂

  4. So true! Images today are edited so much, that it’s impossible to compare yourself with something that has been doctored so much. So no need to compare.

  5. So true about IG models have resources that regular women don’t. Professional hair & makeup, lighting, props, and not to mention the editing capabilities! Those women probably don’t even recognize themselves either!
