I think I must have been at some stage -perhaps a friend who is so happily married though I am so happy for her but, perhaps envious!

I cannot think of any other situations where I have been though I DO feel in my whole life, there must have been some.

Oh, when I had young children I was envious of my friends as most of them had their parents in the same State and helped them whereas my parents lived in Sydney and I did not.

No, but I don't have any close friends.
I don't do Jealous.

Growing up, I was taught it was a very bad thing to be Jealous, as my life was better than some children in poor countries.

It worked very well....for me.


Same here. It is just something that does not compute in my brain. I can't imagine being jealous of anyone for any reason.

I try not to be and think I am much more thankful for what I have than some others I know who have much more and seem to live a wasteful life...in my opinion...... I am human though and at times wish I had what they had, no point though, just be happy with what you have.

Jealousy is a FEELING and as such I believe it is not so easy to just get rid of any feeling -if it is there, it is real for the person.

Don't quite know what your thought process is here or how this relates to my 'opinion' I may feel envious at times but live a much too busy life to dwell on anything like this AS I STATED

I have a friend who is drop dead gorgeous. A total glamour. And not only that, she's intelligent, sociable, a go-getter and always on the ball. I haven't been 'green-faced', but I certainly envy her. Perhaps I should aspire to be more like her, lol, that would surely be a better use of my time, lol.

Apart from her, there is nobody I envy. I suspect people were envious of me for a while. That's the only explanation for the sometimes spiteful and disgusting comments that were uttered behind my back. I'm not bitter, LOL. Just sad.

I have never been jealous of a close friend - only happy for my close friends!!
by AJ
I am always happy when things go well for my friends,and I would hope that they would feel the same when I have something go right for me!!
As a small child I probably felt envy,rather than jealousy when I thought a friend had it better than me,but this was a childish thing,not an adult emotion!
Never, as we treasure our friends.
