I am envious of successful women who have it all (successful career, super perfect marriage and lovely kids). Then again when you get to know them they don't have it all. Well..that's life :) I am also envious of women who are super fit physically! I want to be super fit too!

I am envious of women that can have children, and like the next week they look back to normal again. I'm envious of people that have a picture perfect life. Hair is always perfect,house always clean,etc. I'm envious of people who have never had their husband deployed to another country for months on end. I'm envious of people that have never been a nervous wreck because their husband will be deployed again in the near future. I hate to be envious of anyone, because we should all be greatful for what we've been given. But sometimes it's hard not to be envious.. I guess sometimes the grass just might be greener in the other side.....

I envy people who have jobs I envy people (can't stand them too) who can just walk into jobs and when in jobs, I end up being able to do the work better than them!!! I envy people who have better grades than me I envy people who don't have dyspraxia.....I wish I could wake up one morning and as if by magic it is gone.... I have a loan debt of £20K and it looks as though it won't be payed back!!!

I agree- it would be incredibly depressing and dull to shop all day long. I envy people who live anxiety free lives- people who are laid back and easygoing. I envy people who make friends easily, who are the life of the party. I envy people that are so together- have it all under control. Why does it seem to come so easily to some people and not others?

I envy my super creative friends. I am friends with these amazing artists, poets, writers etc. I just don't have that gene!!! I am also envious of my friends who have jobs that let them live abroad, or who have jobs that are truly "for the good of the world". I'm working for the man, but my heart is in non-profit land. It's funny, I have never envied rich people. I agree with Valeri's take 100%. I was the happiest I have ever been when I had basically no money. There is something to be said for struggle... it's life. These rich people who just shop all day are all depressed and have nothing to live for. Not all of them, but most.

I get most envious when women have things handed to them on a silver platter with no effort or challenges. they just dont understand how lucky they are- and those are usually the women who like to rub it in the less-fortunate womens faces...

Where do I start Im pretty much envious about something every minute of my life :) but I really get so envious of women who look perfect all the time ,are the perfect weight, beautiful and get handed everything. Especially people born into these ridiculously rich familys and have no clue what its like to work for everything or need for things. Also just the normal people who seem to have there life together in every little way and have done everything in perfect order with there life- I want to gag.( Highschool, college, even more college, Great career-Dream job, Huge Salary, outstanding house/car , amazingly perfect boyfriend, wonderful engagement, perfect wedding, perfect marriage , easy pregnancy , picture perfect family...ugh you get the drift ) Yes there are people out there who are like that. But I do agree being envious helps to lead people to drive for more in there life, then what they have .

I am envious of some people unfortunately its a horrible feeling. Some people just get everything on the first try, they lie on their resume and get a great job that pays a lot of money while I've been working since I was 14 and still struggling. They've been married one year and buy their first house and we've been married 10 and can barely get approved for a one bedroom apartment due to bad credit thanks to me having a miscarriage and no insurance to cover all the bills. And lastly they get a surprise pregnancy and we try month after month and nothing. Great I'm depressed now thanks!:-(

i also agree with everyone else about people who get handed everything to them. it annoys me to no end that they don't appreciate how hard most people work to achieve even a modicum of success. i don't always like it, but i'm thankful that i struggle and am able to come out on top. it's not easy but it builds a lot of character and makes a person a lot more interesting!

V aleri ? said... getting to a certain level of living, having your needs and some of your wants met is one thing, but beyond that what is really the point? saving the human race and the earth that you know ?

I'm envious of people who, when I get good at something, they suddenly take it up and are better than me! **“In my mind, I’ve always been an A-list Hollywood superstar. Y’all just didn’t know yet.” -Will Smith **

I am envious of people that live these totally carefree lives, with no worries. I just don't remember a time when I didn't have to worry about every penny, every move being criticized by my stepkids mother, and just normal worries.

i totally agree kendalheart, so it's a reward and special. i have a friend that watches some reality show about spoiled rich kids (maybe called 'the real oc") and i am appaled at the values and lack of appreciation in these kids lives when she'll share it with me. it's like when is it ENOUGH? also, notice who it is that needs rehab, those with too much and no limits.

Well I think that is a good point, that is why I said that I am proud of what I do working for what I want but just sometimes it would be nice.

i don't get envious. but i don't think that having everything handed to you is a gift. look at the way the people who have had this "advantage" live their lives; paris hilton and that idiot that paid some poor homeless person $100 to pour a coke on themself. you can't buy the good part that is inside of a person. why do you need to get out of bed in the morning; the answer is probably that you have a dozen things YOU must do. why does paris (keep using her because she is so obvious) need to get out of bed; she doesn't. struggle is part of the human experience, and i think with good reason. each of us becomes who we are based on our experiences. working toward a goal and accomplishing it build you on the inside, you can't buy that. getting to a certain level of living, having your needs and some of your wants met is one thing, but beyond that what is really the point?

I get jealous of young college students who never have to work and go to school for free! I am thousands of dollars in debt and struggling to get into a good graduate program because my GPA is low since I worked full time!

Exactly what I was thinking Kendal! People who are rich and dont have to work for it, its just handed to them when they are born.
