"I am a recovering Compulsive Comparison Syndrome sufferer. It causes me to feel envy, despair, pride and superiority. It cuts away at my relationship with God, with my loved ones, and with myself. It has promised me contentment, and yet robbed me of it. And although I don't know you at all, I'm fairly sure you have CCS, too. That's not meant to sound rude. It's just that I've rarely met a woman who doesn't struggle with it."
This book is about how to spot this syndrome and its effects in your life; the view of life that causes it; how the gospel treats it; and how you can move beyond it to live a life of true, lasting contentment.
Introduction 1. What is CCS? 2. Symptoms 3. Triggers 4. Outlook 5. Cause 6. Treatment 7. Healthy living 8. The contented woman
"Accessible, jargon-free and dealing with a struggle that women are very prone to, this is a really helpful book for encouraging women to think about how they compare themselves to others, as well as finding the way out of such a comparison-driven life"
