In this episode, Krista examines the scientific root of comparison and the knock-on effects it can have on one’s confidence and sense of self. 

Krista Leans Into the Science and Energetics of Comparing Yourself to Others and How One Can Transmute This Emotion Into a Tool for Self-Growth. 

Everyone can relate to the sensation of seeing green when a friend or someone you know or admire achieves a life milestone you’re yearning for. It’s human, it’s real, and can be mentally excruciating – if you fall down the rabbit hole of negative self-talk. 

Whatever is going on with someone else has nothing to do with me. It has everything to do with them and God. – Krista Williams on Almost 30 Podcast.
