Discover freedom, authenticity, and joy when you stop letting competition and jealousy hijack your life.

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.

Baker & Taylor
Explores the negative effects of living in an excessively competitive culture and reveals ways to recapture contentment, freedom, authenticity, and joy.

Wyma focuses on the Obsessive Comparison Disorder (OCD) that is so prevalent especially with social media. She recommends finding ways to sincerely say those three little words found in her main title. Her numerical challenges are a running joke in the book.
