I’m Happy for You (Sort Of…Not Really)
Finding Contentment in a Culture of Comparison
I’m always happy to receive packages from FlyByPromotions. I always know that it will be something that I love, and something that I want my readers to know about. This book, is again, one that fits that perfectly.
The chapters were amazing. It really made you think about how you live your own life, and why we all need to focus on lifting each other up and not comparing ourselves to others. It seems that in today’s world, nobody is ever happy with their own life. I mean sure, there are things that I would love to have different in my life…being able to lose weight, less migraines, more time in the day. But hey, we’ll given what we have for a reason, and just need to learn to be happy with it. After all, God created us, and we should give Him thanks for all things!
I would definitely recommend this book to anyone. It’s the perfect gift idea for a friend, a great one for a women’s study, to be able to talk about the topics with each other and learn how you can change your life, as well as lift up others. Look below to see how you can win one, or if you don’t want to wait, buy one now!! This would be the perfect gift for someone on your Christmas list to enjoy!
About the Book:
Do you find yourself measuring your value against your friend’s house, body, marriage, resume, paycheck, organic garden, or Pinterest-worthy holiday décor, and coming up lacking? Do your college roommate’s Instagram snapshots bear little resemblance to the scene at your house this morning?
Excessive comparison and competition sap our energy and steal our joy. Our friends become our audience and judges, and our kids become part of our brand. Add social media’s constant invitation to post and peruse, and it’s no wonder that we’re left exhausted, discontent, and lonely. Thankfully, there is another way!
With refreshing candor and humor, Kay Wyma shares her experiences with comparison living and offers readers the simple remedies that helped her and her family reboot their perspective and discover freedom, authenticity, and joy.
Thoughts from Kay:
Tired of performing? Feeling weighed down by the pressure to be Pinteresting? Does your friend’s wardrobe, body, marriage, paycheck, vacation plans, or photoshoot-worthy home decor leave you wishing your life looked more like that? You’re not alone.
With its focus on smarter, faster, thinner, and ever-better, our cultural obsession with comparison is undercutting relationships and sapping contentment. Our friends become our audience (or judges), and our titles, activities, even kids become part of our brand. Factor in social media’s constant reminder of what everyone else is doing, and no wonder we feel drained, discontent, and isolated.
Thankfully, we don’t have to live this way!
