Comparison is the thief of joy


Meet Dave, my Comparisonitus Cactus 🌵

Dave isn’t your ordinary cactus; he’s my personal reminder to steer clear of the endless scroll and the dangerous game of comparing my backstage to everyone else’s front stage.

Social media has a way of distorting reality, presenting carefully curated highlight reels that often leave us feeling inadequate or envious. But comparison is a thief—it steals away our joy, leaving us with a sense of dissatisfaction and inadequacy.

So, I decided to take matters into my own hands, quite literally, by adopting Dave as my desktop companion. Positioned prominently within my line of sight, Dave serves as a friendly sentinel, ready to give me a gentle poke whenever I find myself succumbing to the allure of comparison.

With Dave by my side, I’ve learned to recognise the moments when Comparisonitus starts to creep in. Instead of dwelling on others’ seemingly perfect lives, I’m reminded to focus on my own journey, celebrating my victories and learning from my challenges.

So, if you find yourself falling prey to the comparison trap, I urge you to get your own desktop Dave. Let him be your steadfast reminder to stay true to yourself, embrace your uniqueness, and find joy in your own story. Together, we can reclaim our happiness and break free from the shackles of comparison
