green-eyed monster (well, brown-eyed)

I confess...that I'm totally jealous.

  • I'm jealous of people who don't have my intense (unhealthy) love/hate relationship with food.
  • I'm jealous of people with a normal internal thermostat. I'm usually cold but then get randomly overheated. Then I get sweaty. Then I'm cold AND wet.
  • I'm jealous of people who have a real passion for something. Other than a sexy movie star.
  • I'm jealous of people who KNOW what they want to be when they grow up. Yes, even dedicated five-year-olds.
  • I'm jealous of people who can't eat when they are stressed/down/emotional. Not that that's healthy either, but it is easier of both the waist and the wallet than my response.
  • I'm jealous of people who truly enjoy the actual workout, not just the results and the feeling of accomplishment.
  • I'm jealous of people who don't constantly transpose letters when they type.
  • I'm jealous of people who fall asleep when their head hits the pillow and stay asleep till morning.
  • I'm jealous of the really well-dressed lady on the T whose clothes are simple but always so put-together. I totally missed that part of the girl gene.
  • I'm jealous of people who know what to do with their hair. Missed that part too.
  • I'm jealous of people who don't have to make 25 outgoing calls every day. Evil phone.
  • I'm jealous of people who aren't jealous.

I could second a few on your list. Just so you know that we all have days like that:
I am jealous of people can understand and handle their own emotions and not run away from them.

I am jealous of people who can socialize and connect with others without terrible anxiety

I am jealous of people who follow through with anything from beginning to end.

I am jealous of people who are in a healthy and happy realtionship.

..okay will stop now

Hi Cheryl. Jodi (Gilbert) Young here. I just followed you here from FB and I think I'll add you to my feeds. It might be interesting to get inside the mind of a liberal :)

Judging by this post, I'd say we're not too dieffernt at all! (I'll even leave that spelling of different, just to make my point - honest, I didn't do it on purpose!) I definitely have my food, and I think everyone has something they struggle with, even those who make it look like they have it all together.
