Posted at 7:01 PM, Mar 06, 2024

WSFL-TV's mental health trusted advisor, Agape Behavioral Healthcare, recently sat down with Inside South Florida to discuss the impact of comparison on joy and strategies to combat it. Stephanie Robillio, Chief Clinical Officer, shed light on the importance of mental well-being and the practices Agape employs to promote joy and fulfillment.

Robillio begins by addressing the notion that comparison is the thief of joy, emphasizing how it perpetuates feelings of inadequacy and failure. She explains that comparing oneself to others reinforces negative beliefs and inhibits the ability to experience genuine joy.

To stop comparison, Robillio suggests becoming aware of when comparison occurs and recognizing it as a protective mechanism. She encourages individuals to give themselves permission to step into the unknown and embrace their greatness, thereby opening themselves up to joy.

Agape promotes several best practices to combat comparison and cultivate joy. Robillio highlights gratitude as a powerful tool, emphasizing its ability to shift focus away from comparison towards appreciation for one's blessings. Additionally, she advocates for the use of affirmations, such as "I am worthy of joy," to reinforce positive self-beliefs.

Robillio emphasizes the importance of being present to discover joy in everyday moments. By training the mind to focus on the present, individuals can recognize the abundance of joy surrounding them and cultivate a greater sense of fulfillment.

For those seeking further guidance on mental health and joy, Robillio directs them to Agape's website,, or to call (888) 981-9107. Through daily inspiration and resources, Agape aims to support individuals on their journey towards mental well-being.
