We have so many emotions and understanding them can sometimes be hard. Why do we feel the way we do? Is this really Anger, Love, Pain...What am I feeling and more important, why?

I was talking with a friend and we were discussing Jealousy. Ohhhhh yes, the big bad thing that nobody wants to admit that they are, but often we want someone to be jealous about us, let me explain.

The conversation was about someone telling him he was just jealous of a certain person because she doesn't work, and here he is waking early in the morning to go to work and pay his bills, while she stays home all day doesn't lift a finger to clean the house, she cooks for her boyfriend (the other roomates eat their own food) but then she leaves the "community" kitchen a mess. He said I am not jealous I hate her! Hmmm, no I disagree. You are jealous, and this is not abnormal. Think about it, who would NOT be jealous of someone who can sit and do nothing all day, and have people that are paying her way. I mean I will admit sometimes I do not want to go to work and the thought of staying home and doing NOTHING is appealing. Unfortunately, what some of us are built with are Ethics and Morals and even if we were to stay at home all day, we undoubtedly would be doing SOMETHING. We may do some laundry, dust or vacuum, make dinner (you know the "house person" work, and by the end of the day, ok maybe a week, we would be so bored with being at home that we are ready to go back to work! So, back to the story, Sure he is Jealous of what she gets to do, and in the end it makes him "hate" her a bit. Well not really HER though. He hates the fact that she is ok with sitting at home doing absolutely NOTHING to help out anyone, yes watch your tv, play your games, eat your bon bons. Sometimes, I think the emotions may come from how we end up thinking about ourselves also. Why am I the person that does EVERYTHING, how can  I stop this? 


  1. Well Hell, let's try again!
    I said, glad to see you back! you need to join some hops to increase your followers. Look at my blog, today is Hodgepodge Wednesday.

  2. Hmmmm, an interesting take. However, I am jealous of anyone who has a job at the moment. I would love to be among working people. I've been in Georgia for almost 2 years and can not find a job, thus, I have not made any friends or any money which means I can't go shopping or go to lunch or all those other fun things that working people can do. I think Jealous is not the correct word for how I feel. Maybe i'm envious. Jealousy is the single worst emotion that we have as humans (just my opinion). It will eat you alive and make you a horrible mess of a person.It has no redeeming quality or real use as far as I'm concerned, and it's very distructive. ... thanks for this post and discussion. Your blog is great. Take care, your new pal, Keri alwayscurtsywhenyousneeze.com
