Comparison Girl w/ Shannon Popkin - Patty Wyatt and the Girlfriends

Let’s be honest . . . Do you constantly glance sideways and compare yourself? Do you drive yourself to measure up, then feel ashamed when you don't? 

What about - - - -Thoughts in your head like . . .

I wish I were tall like her. 

If only my kids got along the way her kids do. 

Why does she always seem to have it all together?

Women compare themselves constantly. 

On social media, 

in their neighborhood, 

at church, at work, even in the school drop-off lane, 

they glance sideways and ask, 

“How do I measure up?” 

Behind all this comparison is an enemy gaining tactical advantage.

EEEK!! How do we stay in our own lane??

Comparison-fed pride takes many forms. For instance, envious pride says, “I wish I was great like her.” 

Jealous pride says, “I’m angry because she is great.” Haughty pride says, “I’m so happy that I’m great.” Insecure pride says, “I’m ashamed because I’m not great.” 

Wounded pride says, “I hate being overshadowed by the greatness of everyone else.”  Our pride is expressed in both longing to be first and in despising being last.
