Blessing Not Stressing - Happy Parenting


Sep 12, 2017

Use Comparison to Find Blessings

It is common for us to compare our lives to others in a negative way.  Thus, Facebook is a painful site for many.  They see happy doing great things.  Meanwhile, their life is dull, boring, and full of stress.  This does not need to be the case.  When you look at how much better your life is than others it can relieve stress and make you laugh in a sad situation.

The approach discussed in this episode is finding a silver lining in the idea that things could be worse.  We also look at how those that have it worse than we do can be sources of inspiration.  When we have a bad week we can easily find examples of those that have had a worse one.  In fact, the nightly news and mainstream media live off of this fact.  They bring us the worst news they can find and do their best to make it feel like it happened right next door.  When you compare to others you might see your worries melt away and a smile touch your face.
