    • I don’t normally, but I have to confess to having a bad case of the “poor me’s” lately.  

        It especially gets bad on Saturday night when I know I have to get up and go to church on sunday morning and try to socialize with women who have able bodies husbands, nice cars, nice houses, expensive clothes, and who have absolutely no interest in anything I might have to say.

    • Yes, sometimes I do. Sometimes I’m envious of women who don’t have to work, while I work two jobs, and envious of women who remain thin and make it look so easy.

    • All the time...I am constantly comparing myself with other women, and hating myself that I am not as pretty/as thin/as smart/as successful.

    • Mzd, I’m very envious of women who don’t have to work.  They seem to have all the time and money in the world, and yet I drag my aching body out of bed at 5 am every morning to go work 10 hours in a filthy warehouse just to pay the bills.

    • I get envious of women whose husbands treat them more as equals and include them in decision making. It’s strange for me, my mother was the boss in the family and I’m married to someone who is very different from my dad. I seem to have to fight for a voice. I have friends whose husbands just smile and say “she’s the boss” and I wish I had that in my home.

    • Funny though....When you get to know those people you are envious of you would realize that it is not what it seams.....They are just as sad and unhappy as anyone else.....It always look greener on the other side....I am one of those ladies that does not work but I am lonely most of the times as my husband has to work away from home....There is no quality conversation or intimacy for months because of the nature of his job....I can see the envy of some of the ladies I drive by in my nice car each day and they dont know how sad I am at times and the sacrifice we make just to keep the home together heart

    • Yes, always! I feel the same as Kristin. Ever since my younger years I’ve been envious of other women. It hurts to know that I’m inferior in comparison to most women. frown

    • Hey, we all have things to be envious of, but when you get down to the nitty gritty, look at all the wonderful things we each accomplish in our lives.  Hell, I live with a chronic gosh damn condition which has me in pain every day, my husband (although a wonderful man and great provider) can be very bossy and demanding (whether I work or not), our son (a wonderful young man of 25) is still living at home because the friggin government is trying to annihilate the middle class in this country and my son may never earn enough to live on his own..shall I go on??

      So basically I don’t envy anyone, I live my life, be happy for food, shelter and clothing, love the simple basic things, encourage peace and tranquility in others and stay healthy in body and mind...I have seen Cancer ravage those close to me, so nothing else matters in my opinion.

    • Mary, very well said.  I also look at my past and remember what it was like to grow up poor with a disabled, unemployed, divorced mom and compared to her life, my life is really swell.

      Sometimes I wish my husband worked and made lots of money but he cooks, cleans, takes care of my car (oil changes and such), is a handyman, and a loyal man.  Plus he takes care of our boys.

      Things could always be better, but then again they could always be worse.  I just try to stay focused on the positives and count my blessings on a daily basis.

    • WOW! My hubby and I was just talking about something similar to this, but my answer is NO! I’m doing me and being me! Always have and always will. I’m not trying to keep up with anyone, but God. We never know what hell those who got better my be going through to keep what they have, I like it on this side of my life, stress free and happy.

    • Well ladies, my hormone induced pity party is over for a little while.

      And on normal positive days, I can honestly say I don’t envy anybody.   I enjoyed the heck out of not working when I was unemployed (except for the no money part) and was busy all the time.   But I wouldn’t trade places with someone who doesn’t have to work because I’d miss out on mentoring my young men at work.  It is so fun to watch the grow and help them with their little problems.  And while hubby can go all weekend without saying a word to me, I guess that’s ok, cuz I’ve listened to enough other people during the week that I don’t miss the conversation.
