Oranges versus bananas: The unforgiving mirror of comparison TED Talk suggestion by Laura Miles
"Comparison is the first step in self- annihilation" Laura Miles
This talk, based on Laura's own lived experience of being defined through comparison, provides an entertaining and profound examination of the role of comparison in society and the impact it has on how we relate to ourselves and each other. When we compare ourselves with others, "We lose our individuality and rob the world of our uniqueness" Laura Miles
This talk uses a mirror analogy and provides practical strategies of how to reverse the impact that comparison has had on us and suggests ways to embrace our unique identity.
Using principles from neuroscience, Laura illuminates four ways to both limit and reverse the impact comparison can have.
