Last Friday I deleted Instagram off my phone, again.

For the 5th time. Probably.

I was busy judging the bejaysus out of some people’s stories, and judging the bejaysus out of myself

while watching others’ amazing stories, and I decided, feck this, get off my phone you silly app.

As usual, I had fallen into the habit of wasting a lot of time staring at my phone instead of finding new hobbies and projects to entertain me outside of work. I wanted to try to remember how to do real life things again.

“You’re a life-stealing THIEF!”

I shouted at my phone, then I jabbed my thumb accusingly at Instagram until the app started wobbling in fear. Then I pressed “x”.

It was a bit anticlimactic really.

I’ve been noticing how bloody judgemental we are about others, and ourselves, how

we’re losing the art of listening

to each other non-judgmentally and putting ourselves in others’ shoes, how we’re feeling lonely because we don’t feel fully seen or understood by others (because they’re too busy judging, just like we are), and how we’re comparing the bejaysus out of ourselves. There’s a lot of bejaysus going on.

Instead of writing a long-ass blog about it, I decided to get with the times (or, at least, only 5 years behind the times) and make a vlog about it…

How to handle judgement and comparison:

I would love to hear what you think – questions, disagreements, key take-aways (the Uber Eats kind is also welcome), let me know over here on the Facebook post.

Keen to work with me 1:1 and get clear on what you want and how to get out of your own way? I have a few spots coming available over the next few months!

How a small town in NSW gave me my clarity back

Friday morning last week I went to the Mullumbimby farmers markets and wandered around buying fresh vegetables for my friends to arrive back to after their busy trip to the charity they started in Africa (yes, I know.) Around the market, people were walking slowly,...
