I’m the opposite. I really don’t feel comfortable when people say they are envious of me for any reason.
A true friend cannot wish you the best with envy in their heart. This was a tough lesson for me.
I had a friend I considered a sister. It wasn’t until years later and a MAJOR slap in the face, did I realize how much this girl really hated me. She was so jealous that when I was at my lowest she was actually happy. (another story)
Lesson Learned: When someone is jealous of the good things in your life they cannot be truly happy for you. If they are jealous the of the good things they must be happy when things are going bad for you.
Note to Boys: I’m telling you boys this in the hopes of saving you the hurt I went through. Don’t wish for others to be envious of you – for they will never really want good things for you. And don’t brag about all God has blessed you with – stay humble and always give thanks to Him.
