…but I compare myself to everyone else’s stats. I am so ridiculously grateful for ever single like/comment/follow, and I know I am not doing this for any sort of recognition, but checking the stats can lead to some pretty destructive thought patterns. I look to see how long it took someone to get to a certain level, as if it’s going to make me feel better about not achieving the kind of stats that I would consider as successful.
Inevitably one of two things happens.
- I am placated as I realise I have raised the bar ridiculously high for myself and am doing fine.
- I see someone who has achieved DOUBLE the followers in the same timeframe and I’m plunged into self-doubt.
I have therefore decided to no longer share my stats. This isn’t because I don’t want to continue to share my story, failures and success, I just don’t want this to become about the figures. I don’t want to incite triggers to others either.
If anyone is interested in my stats (although not sure why it would), please feel free to message me directly.
