Self-Confidence, Comparison, and Not Feeling Enough with Monica Denais

monica denais smiles in therapy office


Raise your hand if you struggle with self-confidence, comparison, and not feeling enough…

*Both hands are waving in the air over here!*

If we’re being honest, staying on the right side of the line between feeling inspired and comparing ourselves is difficult. Especially when it’s with someone who is living a life you want to have! Look, it’s 2022, and we’re here for an aesthetic moment. We live for a beautiful space to live and work in. However, it can be easy to shift into the mindset that your life isn’t good enough when it’s not perfectly aesthetic in every way.

We scroll TikTok and see the perfect morning routines with the all white houses, expensive loungewear sets, and green smoothies made in high dollar blenders. Yet, for most of us this isn’t exactly what our lives look like. Shifting from seeking aesthetic moments rather than seeking a fully aesthetic life is key to enjoying the beautiful things in our lives without obsessing over the areas that may not be as perfect.

In this episode our FC resident therapist Monica digs into how to build self-confidence and assurance with ourselves. We truly are enough! She shares her best tactics for what to do when comparison hits and how to navigate the spiral that usually comes from it. One of my favorite takeaways from this episode is:

How We Can Be Better at Self-Validation:

  1. Ask for the opinion of others LESS
  2. Voice feelings directly without back-peddling
  3. Lean into hard conversations and conflicts in a healthy way

If you’re a female in your 20’s or 30’s you know the struggle. Trying to defeat burnout, loneliness, and the frustration that can come from trying to achieve a real sense of balance in your life is no joke! You have so many goals, so many ideas and so many dreams. You see the end result but you don’t know how to get there.

No, I’m not reading your journal, I just know what it’s like. But what if you could go from feeling frustrated to feeling freedom in the life you want to create? The Fearless Chase Membership is a one-of-a-kind community that focuses on the things that matter. We believe that within a community of like-minded women who want you to succeed, it’s possible to reach your goals and enjoy life along the way.

Here’s what one of our members had to say after joining the membership: “Being a part of The Fearless Chase has truthfully been one of the biggest blessings I’ve encountered in my life. That’s how big of an impact it’s had on me! While the tips and tricks from experts have been so useful in my daily life, it’s the people that keep me. Being in your 20’s and 30’s can be super lonely, but The Fearless Chase feels like an inclusive club. It feels like getting coffee with friends on a Tuesday. This is just the place to be!”
