Sister dearest

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

I'm trying really hard to be supportive, but my sister just sent pics of her little red bikini that she just bought. It's just... She's got the great-paying job, the supportive husband (not that mine isn't, but hers will actually eat healthy with her), the big house, the new car, and now the killer body. And I know that she worked hard for it and if I lived where she lived and had no kids I would also be making a lot more money and be able to afford the nice house, etc... It's just really hard not to be jealous of her because it always comes so easily for her. She's always been the pampered baby of the family and her whole life has been one good thing after another.

    Yes, I know the feeling. However took a look around and find the positive things. There are many people who love to be in your position. Are you in good health? You have a supportive husband (your words). So, you're not alone wishing for love and companionship. You have a roof over your head. I can't tell for sure, but it sounds like you have kids. If you do, I'm sure they love you very much.

    Now writing all of that, I'll just write that it's okay to be jealous for a moment. It's natural. Take stock of all the good things, and just know your life for all of its imperfections is envied by someone else. I have to remind myself of this all of the time. Soon it will be easier and you won't envy her any more.

    Hope your day gets better. emoticon
