I have a great group of friends, and football season and soccer season at BYU are going well--I don’t have my voice more often than I do and I’m really surprised none of us have fallen off the bleachers for how much we jump up and down on them. They are fairly skinny after all, and slippery when wet.
My friends and I talked about this recently (well, not so recently it seems, but my blog has been unavailable to me to add things), anyway.
I think a lot of the time we misunderstand the emotion of jealousy--or maybe we’re looking for a different word to describe what we are feeling. I don’t think just because we are jealous of someone, means we want what they have.
Case in point: exes. No matter how long after the relationship, and no matter how it ended--by you, by them, mutually, awful or on good terms, if you’re still friends or not, whether you’re in a new relationship or not--when your ex is with someone new, we all feel a little twinge of jealousy; I think of what you once had, not because you want them back, but because you want their new boyfriend or girlfriend to appreciate and love what you did about them. And I don’t really think that is a bad thing either.
That’s all really. Food for thought.
Lastly, Post Secret I know, I haven't talked about it FOReverrrrrr. But I do have a few I want to put up. Lets just go with one right now.....or two.
