Incidentally, I received some feedback about my last tipandtrick. One friend called it human, another vulnerable, and my mother was worried about my self-esteem. Some kind folks even answered the question at the bottom in person to me.

All of the feedback has helped me to remember that even though I sometimes do compare myself to others, it is a practice of mine not to. I quote my genius friend Emily out-loud and to myself all the time; she says, "Compare and despair."

My neighbor Raven cut to the chase about comparing ourselves to other people once when she said, "We compare our insides to other people's outsides."

Damn skippy ladies, thank you for helping me continue to cultivate awareness around this super unhelpful habit.
