Do you feel jealous when your friends are better off than you are?

I have so many friends that are very well off and have no problems with bills and other things in life. If they want something they get it without ever having to save for it. I have one friend that has maids and lots of beautiful cars and an outrageous home. I always love going to visit her as I am always amazed at everything in the home. Do you feel jealous if your friends are better of than you>

No I don't because I have never been a person who has kept much of anything. I worked for 18 years from one place to another and basically lived out of suitcases. Then coming here it was so strange to have a home to actually own something and to be able to settle down. I have never been one to buy a lot because it is not in my nature to own a lot of stuff. I just feel if I had to move again what would I do with all tht stuff.

@ramapo17 I guess I saw how it was when my parents moved from France to America. I went to help unpack and I went crazy. I thought to myself why would you move all this junk. I guess that is why I am never jealous of people who have so much. I look at it and think what will you do with all this stuff. I don't like clutter and I prefer an big open space to live in.

No I am not jealous, they worked for what they have, or owe for it. I am happy when people get ahead in life. I am not like other people, I don`t want a certain life, I like the simple things in life, sometimes a big house is not better. Sometimes all I want is an old pick up truck.

I guess while iam cleaning and she wasn't thrn yes. But i have found many don't consider if they didn't have that, or if they lost those how to do tasks. My one friend had that with her husband but after the divorce shr couldn't manage
No.I hate being envious.We should be happy with what we can make out of our own lives.But it is not a sin to look at somone's lifestyle and be awestruck by it and wonder,"I wish I could be like her".....But it is wrong only when you look at the other person's lifestyle with a pair of green eyes and think,"Why should all the good things happen only to her".......There is a difference.........
