Are you ever Jealous ...

Are you ever jealous at what other people have?

For me I get so jealous when I see happy families. I wish that I could give that to my son. I'm happy for those people to be blessed with a loving family. I just wish I could get that for me and Shawn. (Envious is more the appropriate word)

  • No; only because I don't know what goes on behind closed doors. And just because they seem happy does not mean they really are!!! Your son is blessed because he has a mom who loves him enough to wish she could give him everything he wants and deserves!!!! Ask him if he's not happy with just it being you and him and I swear to you he'll tell you that he is but what ever would make you happy he would want you to have. We get so wrapped up in what other people have that we lose sight of we actually do have. Of course we all want to be in a happy loving family but unfortantely this is not the case in this day and age; and sadly partially thanks to Madonna's song "papa don't preach", and loose morals being brushed off due to the world changing their are a lot more of us having children out of wed lock. You tried, and you were unselfish enough to let his dad find happiness else where since he couldn't find it with you! You rock

  • envious is a nicer word.. =P i do envy how all our family & friends get a little free time once in a while because they have very helpful grandparents. it would be nice to get out of the house without the kids once in a while, but that hasn't happened more than twice since my first was born. now i have three. but i do understand why my parents can't help as much as they'd like with babysitting. they've been so helpful in many other ways so i guess it evens out.

  • Yes, I get jealous of people more for the material things they have, especially HOUSES. I want a new house so bad right now. I try to keep the green eyed monster away though.

  • I don't think I'm jealous. When I see other people having good things that I don't I'm generally just happy for them. I guess that's cause I've been very blessed with my family and where we are.

  • Not of stuff like others having happy families. I get jealous over other stuff, like others rolling in money, when we are barely making ends meet, and stretching it hard even then. I get jealous over the time my s/o spends with people he works with as when he's at home he's in front of the computer constantly. Stuff like that!

  • I'm never jealous, and I can say that honestly. I'm so fortunate in my life that I have no right to be jealous. Some people may have more than me, or a more exciting life, but I still have so much. My family is healthy, and as long as we're healthy, I'll be happy. I could never want anything as much as I want that, so for me to be jealous of someone would be silly. I can understand how it must be hard for you, though. I'm sorry you're going through that. Sometimes it takes a while for things to all come together, but I'm sure you'll find your happy family soon. :)

  • Thanks Ladies :). I have these moments where I feel ridiculous being envivous.

    You're right in pointing out that my son is happy just him and I. I can't change it so I do make the best out of our situation.

    Appreciate all the good feedback.
