I’ve had it. The end. No more compare and despair.
For those of you balanced people not in the know, compare and despair is when you look at others business/career/husband/ass and compare it with your own (inferior) one.
This never ends well.
Unless you think that burying yourself in your husband’s armpit and crying about how awful it all is counts as working.
I guess that intimate vulnerability does have its benefits (insert R rated thoughts here. I’m going to keep it clean though. This is a family blog.)
So I made you a little video. I’m not wearing makeup and my hair isn’t did.
But it’s the truth.
This isn’t some lame-ass strategy to reel you in. Which is so gross. Vulnerability is all the rage right now. For good reason. But I’ve seen some people pretending to be vulnerable but you can tell they’re not really. It always make my stomach twist.
This video came from an impulse that wouldn’t pass. And it terrified me in an electric sort of way. So I promised myself if I didn’t like the video after it was done, I didn’t have to show anyone.
If you want to play the compare and despair game with me today, do it up!
You’ll totally win!
Unless winning means being someone other than who you are right here, right now, in this moment.
Which it never does.
