Social Comparison Theory and Celebrities

article image placeholderUploaded by @MHNmaven
Hello, everyone. Welcome to the Mind Health Network. I'm your Mind Health Network Maven Bow, and I want to talk to you today about social comparison in regards to celebrities because something came up and I went, whoa, whoa, whoa. So there is a thing called social comparison theory. Social comparison theory was actually first proposed in 1954 by a psychologist named Leon Festinger. It was basically that we have this innate drive that we evaluate ourselves and compare ourselves to others

And I can't do what I used to do, and that's hard to swallow, but I'm getting in the mindset where I have to take my own advice and I need to stop comparing myself even to my younger self because we're not getting any younger these days. But yeah, I do think it's important to not compare. Especially I don't think it's realistic to ever think that somebody could compare to a celebrity nor these days would should anybody want to do that

The older I get, I compare Leanne to Leanne, who she was ten years ago, 15 years ago. And I've really just started working on me as someone who is no longer in the industry but was, and I do have some celebrity friends. It's really funny for me when I interact with my friends, just watching them day to day, right? Like, we'll go out for coffee or something and just to see them interact as, quote, a normal person, right?
