I have been so jealous of other people lately. I know I should be focusing on all the good things I have, but instead all I can see is what I lack.
- I am jealous that my cousin’s daughter is bilingual (even though I have not put an effort to teach my kids Russian)
- I am jealous that my friends’ kids can read, and mine cannot (even though I haven’t made an effort to teach them)
- I am jealous that other people have fulfilling jobs (even though I have not looked for a new job, or tried to improve the one I have)
- I am jealous that other people are on top of things (even though I opt to waste my time on web surfing and reading books)
I don’t think I like myself very much.
