    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...
