    I Often Find Myself Guilty of It...

    Jealousy is a powerful emotion. It is considered one of the seven deadly sins. Although I feel envy goes hand in hand with pride. At least it does with me. I'm most often envious when my pride is hurt. I'm envious of what my friends have. They don't have to fight through the...

    Done

    I stopped talking to my best friend. Maybe the reason is petty but sometimes you can feel like a relationship has run it's course. I was done with him, the way he treated me and the way he acted. It's weird how we became friends especially since we both liked the same guy. The...

    Classic Situation

    I'd never understood it when people talked of sibling jealousy. I didn't feel that way at all when my little brother was born. I loved him straight away; I wanted to see what type of person he would become. I was always aware of the way people treated me and my elder brother...
