Is there a person that you are extremely envious of?


Theres a WHOLe lot of people that i am envious of, mostly from school. i have an instagram (that has a no posts, no picture and a few friends follow, but looks inactive) that i stalk people i am jealous of occasionally if they have a public account llol im so pathetic. and on the inside i knowww people cant be perfect and they have they're own issues but still
yeah but i have this one cousin who is about two years younger than me and o m g she just seems so well off, like she has a great personality, she is funny, super smart like street smart and she has great grades, the type to win awards for academics, super pretty, is great at doing her makeup, super confident, 20/20 vision, a group of very close friends and guy friends, a boyfriend, good relationship with family, nice clothes, knows how to speak the language that our family speaks well, e t cc. i cant shake the feeling of how much better she is than me i have none of those things hahahahahahah (ik what a waste of time focusing on this pointless ****, i cant stop tho!)

yeah, there's this guy in my school who has done internships at great companies and has a ton of connections. He's basically set for life at this point.

Lots of them. :/

If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.

Yes. There are people that seem to have everything in life and haven't had serious difficulties. How could they be so damn lucky at everything? This kind of people lack empathy and kindness. They look down on me and talk in a condescending manner about my struggles and difficulties in a very Marie-Antoniettesque "let them eat cake " sort of way.

What do they know? They preach the virtues of fasting and dieting after they have had their fulfill. Do they know what is like to be hungry? To smell the food but not be able to touch it or let alone eat it?

**** them!

I wish that I could wipe that smirk from their faces.

I used to feel the same way and be envious of other people, but since it made me feel awful I recently cut out a lot of social media. It can be hard to stop, but comparing yourself to other people does nothing. The only person you should be comparing yourself to is who you were yesterday. I'd rather do that and better myself as a person than compare my life to what others post online and be miserable.

Too many, some for understandable reasons and others for more unhealthy ones.

Not really maybe certain things they've experienced or achieved but even then it's not something that occupies my mind too much.

Maybe fictional characters with magic/superpowers or anyone who got to go to Hogwarts but people in reality eh, they're all constrained by the same laws of physics.

I mean envy happens but I think I spend too much time in my head daydreaming or distracting myself, to really be that present. And most people annoy me so there's also that.

The wretched world we’re living in at present was not an unlucky war of fate; it was an economic and political decision made without consulting the enormous human population that it would most drastically affect. If we would have it otherwise, if we’d prefer a future that we can call home, then we must stop supporting — even passively — this ravenous, insatiable conservative agenda before it devours us with our kids as a dessert. - Alan Moore

Because you're full of empathy ? Does not seem like it. You sound pretty hateful, that's sad.

I try and focus on myself and the things that are under my control. Naturally, can't avoid a pang of it sometimes, but I sweep that **** under the rug or reframe things.
