Envy – the resentful or unhappy feeling of wanting somebody else’s success, good fortune, qualities, or possessions.
It’s 7: 15 PM on day 111 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a homemade Wrap consisting of beef strips, vegetables and sweet-chili sauce for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for most of the day – I must have sent out at least 50 donations requests and FINALLY someone agreed to make a donation – I am nothing if not persistent LOL 🙂 – feed myself Malva Pudding for lunch, exercise for 15 minutes, wheel myself from my bedroom to the end of the corridor – I was just 2 meters away from the dining when my mother had insisted on pushing me the rest of the way because my dinner was getting cold – I was SO mad – and feed myself Fish fingers for dinner.
I am the eldest of three children and although my sister has always been the golden child I have never been envious of her because I knew that she had worked hard for everything that she got but today as I watched her walk from our bedroom to the dining room in less than 30 seconds I felt an unmistakable surge of envy coarse through me because I knew that she hadn’t worked for her ability to walk. Have you ever been envious of somebody that you loved? 😦
