Comparisons and self-judging

One of my biggest flaws is comparing myself to others and, in my head, I never stack up. The funny thing is I was a VP at two companies. But I still don't think I deserved it or was good enough. The mind is so defeating.

He's smarter than me. She's stronger than me. He had a better background. She's accomplished so much more. He has more confidence. Etc etc.

Anyone else?

Yep, but I think regardless of whether or not people have anxiety they have these thoughts, compare themselves to.others. One thing I did when I was having a crappy day was write out my really good qualities to read when I'm feeling that way.

Sometimes we don't give ourselves enough credit, But someone else must have known better because they put "you" in VP position . Sounds like they made the right decision 😊
