J is for Jealous

14 Apr

I’m about to share with you a big weakness of mine. Don’t take advantage of it, please. You ready?

I get so jealous. All the time. It’s disgusting. It happens almost every day. When I sell credit cards and people have normal annual incomes. It’s all, “oh, well isn’t that nice for you? I’m just Ms. Nobody here making nothing. I can’t even afford an apartment.” Like, seriously? It’s so childish.

My jealousy can get really, really bad. I have a really good friend. She’s got so much going for her in the writing world, and I’m almost too jealous of her to be happy for her. Once, when I heard something happening to her, I almost cried. Why can’t that happen to me? Even trying to remind myself that her father is in a coma doesn’t relieve the jealousy.

Don’t worry, I have the counselor helping me work through it.

Do you get jealous? Do you feel like a little child wanting a lollipop? I do. What’s your biggest weakness?

    I get jealous all the time. When I see people buying stuff I want or when they tell me they’re going to do something I also wanted to do I feel like slapping the living hell out of them. Instead, I just smile and say “Oh, how nice” while I kill them several times in my mind. 🙂

    It is nearly impossible in our society, where the focus is all about getting rich and being famous, not to compare yourself and feel as if you fall short. I got so fed up with it that I quit my job as a magazine editor, sold 75% of my possessions and moved to a boat. For real.
