Triggering comment

I share my ideas and I have noticed that some of my ideologies and thinking are very much like another coach who is well known in the same field. I recently posted something and a person responded “(same coach I refer here) said that.”

The comment annoyed me so much. The thought was – she has taken up the market as first entrant. I have no chance. I’ll always be second and compared to. People will think I am just the copy of her.

Every comment whether it be praise or somewhere else — kind of triggers these feelings. We are in the same circle and I really want to be a person who remains unaffected by these things and feels powerful and unique in my own ways and ideas.

I know these thoughts come from my childhood of being compared to my sister. But in this instance – they feel true.
