    Pregnant women........because I've miscarried and had an ectopic pregnancy. I know it's wrong and I don't hate them or want anyone else to go through what I have, but I can't help but think......"do you know how lucky you are!?" Seeing a heavily pregnant woman makes me want to scream from the depths of my soul.

    @ Ethereal, I'm sorry to hear about your losses. It must of been very traumatic for you. :(


    For me its mothers showing affection towards their children in front of me, I get little jealous.

    Ahh... what I would do to have a mother who gave damn about me.
    Sometimes I secretly wish that my mother was an INFJ (instead of a scary ESXJ)

    @Ethereal; I'm so sorry hearing that too :( It must've been hard for you. *hugs*

    Also, genuinely GENUINELY happy people. Not that kind of happy-go-lucky, always sunny, for it's a matter of life view, but people that's genuinely happy.

    Also..females with good clothes. I won't elaborate on this one. D:

    i envy people with complete and perfect bodies and health, never touched by a doctor or surgeon or anything except to get a vaccination, i want to know what their lives are like. i envy also people who are able to form companionate love connections made of respect and acceptance that weather the differences and the years, i think that at the end of their lives when they're old they must find themselves in a beautiful private dreamlike world, and i envy them because i don't think i'll have that (although, i think it may be rare in reality anyway). i also envy people who trade their principles for ephemeral things like popularity and forms of immediate gratification because i sometimes worry that trying to be the best self i can be and sticking to my principles might not get me where i want to go and in the meantime my life is difficult when i could be living fast and having fun.

    This is me. Its so hard to see people like that. It psychically hurts me. I want that so bad its painful. And yet I don't see the means to get it.

    And couples who are happy. I'm so sick of being single and alone. It hurts to look at them. I just want to say you know how lucky you are?

    Same here, I wonder what that would be like.

    Hey, I happen to be on the single boat too.
    I'll be your Jack, if you will be my Rose. :m155:
    It just so happens that I draw charcoal portraits of nude people for a living too. Care for a session?

    I envy people with really high IQ scores. Mine is 108. If it was higher I could learn things faster than I currently do.

    Hey, don't sweat about it!
    There are plenty of ways you can improve your brain function such as exercise (lifting weights, walking while listening to music etc.), consuming a diet which is higher in proteins, amino acids and essential fatty acids (you can get this from eating fish, nuts, beans, olive oils, protein whey etc.) and eating a diet low in gluten (replacing bread with rice) which has been proven to improve brain function by increasing blood flow to the brain, and getting a good nights sleep (8 - 10 hours sleep.)

    I envy people who have their careers and schooling all sorted out by the time they were in the their mid-twenties.

    I envy people who have strong convictions and steel-trap self-control.

    I envy people who have found true passion in their lives; not romantic passion, but passion in what it is they do.

    I envy people who have the courage to follow their dreams without hesitation.

    I feel as though bears don't really have it that bad.
    I would like to be a bear.

    That made me smile. It'd be nice to sleep through the winter and tell the rest of the world to bugger off for a few months. lol.

    I envy those who are trim and very healthy. I'm a wreck from old football injuries (knees, shoulders, neck and back), am diabetic, have HBP, and a history of depression. I miss playing golf, running, and can't read a book for more than about 30 minutes at a time or my arms hurt and get weak. At least I don't have to hold the monitor, and can type like nobodies business!

    I envy the equanimous. Especially if they have well defined abdomens.

    I don't envy other people. I may envy their job, but it is more of a way to give a compliment. I may say, "those people or that couple have it made" now and then. I may wonder at how beautiful, smart, talented, or YOUNG someone is; but admiration can stop there without envy.
