Envy. How does that really work? I have to admit that I really and truly don’t get the regular envy that you stumble into…. People who hate others because they are more financially successful, more skilled, more popular, prettier, more successful in their private lives, the list could go on and on. Yet there are numerous people out there who struggle so much when they see other people’s happiness and success that they have to do everything they can to create some misery  in a desperate attempt to make themselves feel better. There are people out there who simply cannot deal with other people’s happiness. If they fail at throwing some shade they might attempt to create some genuine trouble, as they just have to try to bring you down in one way or another.

These are the type of people who would be labeled as “toxic”. Like weed growing in a beautiful flower bed. There are people who cannot handle other’s excitement, who feel intimidated by it to such an extent that they desperately have to try to extinguish the fire, because the happiness and/or confidence of others make them feel as if though they lose their own.

You being happy, celebrating something and/or being bubbly and full of life, can make other’s feel insecure. There is probably nothing more scary than envy as the pitiful would go to any length in order to destroy those who are cool and happy about things.

I know….I really don’t get it. I mean…I can understand that you could become a bit emotionally envious if you have a crush on someone or something, but all other levels and nuances of envy is completely and totally alien to me.

If you look good, you should preferably complain about whatever aspect of your own appearance that you are not that happy with, because being happy with yourself might make you “unbearable”….unless you are really ugly. Only then are you alowed to be proud and loud. If you are experiencing any sort of succes you should preferably excuse it, apologise for it, credit it to luck, or talk about what a failure you are in other areas of your life because being too happy about where you are in your life at any given moment makes you a threat to those who are not. Being “loud and proud” only works if your life officially sucks.

Some friends are only really interested in you if you have something to whine about. There are people who are so petty that they will try to create arguments with you, try to push buttons that they think that you might possess. If you are like me, you’ll just sit there like….”ahhhh……ok…” and scoff at how miserable some people truly must feel deep down about themselves. You want to populate your life with people who are loving, caring, that you have deep bonds with, people who you love, that love you in return, people who will be excited with you and cheer you on. These are the only people worth having in your life because when the moment comes for them to question you or tell you you are on the wrong track you’ll know it to be heartfelt and true 🙂 ❤ 🙂 ❤ 🙂 ❤ 🙂 ❤ 🙂

    I concur. My biggest peeve with people like you describe, at least those of whom I’ve encountered, is they always want to reduce my successes to a mere example of God-given talent rather than what they really are; the end-results of diligence and very hard work. These sorts of people are much like the Media. They build you up just so they can tear you back down.
    Great blog. Cheers!

    Hey I know this is a little off topic but I was wondering about ordering something. I want to order a signed copy of your children’s book as a birthday gift for a child. If I put notes in the paypal order, is it possible for you to also write happy birthday to the child’s name inside the book?
