The mind is a powerful thing, as it can make a person or break them down. Each woman is a gem in her own right, with her own unique sparkle and gorgeous hue, but even precious rocks lose their sparkle in the shadow of doubt. Constant comparison between herself and another woman can bring feelings of inadequacy. The process repeats endlessly, and eventually, she becomes blind to the beauty she possesses. Looking at Daisyiona Howlett and seeing a talented, beautiful, and confident lady, it is very easily the image of a perfect woman with an ideal life.
This image could not be further from the truth. In fact, this lady had her fair share of feelings of inadequacy as well. Before she became a Comparison Coach, she had struggled with anxiety and depression and has fallen into the ‘comparison trap’ as well. As a woman who always compares herself to other women, she is privy to the downward spiral that many have fallen into.
It is precisely her personal experiences with mental health issues and the lack of self-love that inspired her to venture into the field of mental healthcare. Daisyiona Howlett is a Comparison Coach, serial entrepreneur, published author, and mental health and wellness advocate. With a degree in Psychology from Cypress College in California, she is dedicated to helping other women be able to look in the mirror and see their worth. At the moment, she is working on broadening her qualification by acquiring other certifications in the mental health field that will allow her to reach a larger population. In fostering and nurturing self-love, she hopes to help many others live happier, healthier lives.
The Worthy I AM Journal is a prompt journal conceptualized by the comparison coach to serve as an outlet for women who are tired of striving for perfection or who are tired of life in general. It was created for the women who paste smiles and pleasant expressions on their faces on a daily basis to hide the truth of the loneliness and isolation they feel. The 52-week mental health and wellness prompt journal allows women to be authentic as they put their unfiltered thoughts and feelings on paper.
Despite wanting to help as many people as she can, Daisyiona Howlett is well aware that there is only so much she can do. Instead, she opts to support a specific demographic—one that she belongs in: young adult women. She finds that it is much easier to connect with those she has more similarities with. Given her deep understanding of the demographic, the coaching techniques she uses on herself would most likely be more effective on them than others.
Women are always on the quest for perfection, which can take quite a toll on the mind. There is no real perfection, and people must learn to settle for the next best thing: confidence and self-love.
