no I think envy is pointless, be happy for what you have

Oh sometimes when the "Keeping up with the JOnes's" bug bites, but I try to steer clear.

No I can't say that I'am.  I'm always happy for anyone to do well.  That doesn't mean that I don't sometimes wish for things for myself but I don't feel envious of the ones who have more or do more.

Nope--I am happy for others and their successes just like I would want the same for me.

Sometimes but not really, I'm usually very happy for others

I'm envious more than I would admit to being in real life.  I just get tired of all the struggles and yet I know that many have more struggles then I do.

I'm not envious for myself but sometimes I wish I could give my kids more of the cool things their friends have....

I get this way when I can't give my kids the " latest" something they have really been wanting... I have to remind myself that my kids are lucky to have what they have when other kids sometime have no home or food...
