Book Review: I’m Happy For You (Sort Of… Not Really) by Kay Wills Wyma

Genre: Self-Help

You’ll like this if you like: Contentment, Not Struggling with Comparison, Being Happy for the Successes of Others, Selflessness, Improving Yourself, and Success.


This book is about finding contentment in a culture of comparison.


First of all, the cover is amazing, but it’s the content behind the cover that will change your mindset and improve your life. The book is conversational, easy-to-read, and begins each chapter with a quote. Everything in here is so creative. For example, take the title of the first chapter: Obsessive Comparison Disorder. The book covers a more in-depth understanding of comparison and how to stop comparison before it sucks the joy from everything. You’ll walk away from this book with a new mindset and focusing on others rather than yourself.


Purchase I’m Happy for You (Sort Of… Not Really)


Is finding contentment in our culture a struggle for you too? Why do you think it can be so difficult to be happy for others? Why do we compare ourselves to others? And what sort of self-help book reviews would you be interested in seeing in the future?

    This sounds like a very helpful book for many people today. Great addition to your blog! And I think it is a great idea to add self-help books in addition to your romance. I am not a big self-help reader, so I can’t be very specific, but it think many of the books you have mentioned to me would be great. One was “7 Habits of a Highly Effective Teen,” and I think another one was “Boundaries: When to Say Yes and How to Say No,” or something to that effect.

      I totally agree! I was thinking of using a few self help books every here and there, simply because they’re for everyone and they reinforce what I’m saying for my thought-provoking posts 🙂 Thank you!
