The Comparison Battle

"Why Her?: 6 truths we need to hear when measuring up leaves us falling behind," written by Nicki Koziarz is a such a good women's read.  People, especially women it seems, find themselves constantly comparing themselves to others, asking why she looks like this or why does she seem to have the perfect life, while we are facing one battle after another that are constantly wearing us down.  This book is divided into 6 sections or truths that each of us needs to be thinking on and constantly remembering.  Being honest is one of the truths, and another is knowing that you do not always have to be okay.  Seeing things how they are instead of seeing another person's success or win does not mean that you life is awful and that this is a loss to you, but seeing how we all can be successful and content and happy. 
Each chapter addresses a specific truth/point.  Nicki shares stories, feedback from others and God's truths and promises.  There are lists, quotes highlighted in boxes, questions to reflect on and main points reiterated that really reach out and catch the reader's attention and hold it there.  The comparison game is so easy to get caught up into and hard to break the cycle of; therefore, this is an excellent book to read to start addressing this.
