  • Seeming happy and being happy are not the same thing. I've known a lot of families that looked perfect on the outside, attractive, accomplished, highly paid, but they were not happy at all. I knew one guy with a beautiful wife and two lovely daughters who committed suicide after the 2001 market crash. I've known many couples who were married with children but didn't really communicate and at least one of them was lonely in the marriage. You never can tell. If you have a happy relationship and financial stability you have no reason to be jealous of anyone.

  • Nope, and I've actually known people like that. It's amazing how some people's lives just seem to come together so perfectly. But then we often don't see the anxieties and problems they have behind closed doors. But I'm often happy to see people have success in their lives. Try not to compare yourself with other people too much.

  • There's nothing I couldn't achieve out of those, so I don't think I would be jealous of someone who had that.

  • yes i get a little jealous sometimes. in high school i worked my ass off, went to a good college and now i'm working my ass off. meanwhile most of my classmates who scored much lower than me are out travelling, meeting celebrities, modelling internationally, etc. how is this even fair! it's not that i'm not happy for them, but when am i going to get my big break seriously. the only time i see myself traveling is after i'm 60 and retired

  • If im happy myself, i can't be jealous of other people.
    All of these things you mentioned, the ultimate goal is to be happy.
    If me, and a person who has all these things, are both happy, we are on the same level.
    I know most people will disagree in this dishonest materalistic world

  • No, I'd be envious. When somebody has something you wish you had, you become envious. When you have something and somebody else takes it away from you, or at least tries to, that's when you get jealous.

  • no not at all... personally i would most likely be a little envious of them but never jealous...
    I would however show my respect that they got their life together where many of us couldn't so fair play to them

  • There is no reason to be jealous, I made my life happy and wealthy by now. I have a wonderful girlfriend and everything is OK for me. If this guy made it by beeing 15 years younger as me, I am not jealous : I applaud him and say "well done sir"

  • If they worked hard for it like everyone else then no I would congratulate them and sta d by them but if mommy and daddy handed them everything in life and they dont know the meaning of life then I would pity them because they dont know true accomplishments and achievements

  • Nope. The married part kills it. I know that he might think he has everything now, but in a few years SHE'LL have everything and he'll be crashing on people's couches. I don't envy any married chump.

  • Hell no, I ain't got time to be jealous.
    Good for them, I wish them the best.

    I gotta work with the cards I've been dealt. This life is a test, and I'm trying to do my best.

  • "seemed" is the operative word.

    I'm not jealous of filthy rich people either. Equally fucking terrible lives and problems a poor person couldn't comprehend.

  • No, not really, life is always ironic no matter where you are what you have or do and it is never perfect for anybody just maybe for very short amount of time.

  • I don't care what they have as long as they don't try to correct me for wanting to achieve the same things they have or had. That's what pisses me off.

  • No, each of us makes decisions about where our life is going. My choices aren't the same as others. They have what they felt was a goal and I have my own. I am happy for them to be able to achieve what they wanted at a young age. Its admirable.

  • When I achieved those (except for the marriage) in my 20s, that propped me up on a pedestal among people in my social circle. 20 years later, I'm even more successful now.

    But I'll be also happy for them.
