Jealousy

How many times have you felt "What can't I be him ?"

You feel that quite often.
If you are a car buff you feel that intense desire when you see someone going in a imported Vanquish or a Toyota Cruiser !!!

I feel it quite often when I see my friends.

Why can't I be as well-organised as Lord ?

Why can't I be as determined as Deva ?

Why can't I be as versatile as AK ?

And when I see Nag, I am totally frustrated at my inability.

But then again there is a saying in Tamil which goes
"Ikkaraikku Akkara Pachchai"
that
translates to "The grass is always greener on the other side"

Maybe I too have something good in me .... ;-)) ( See I am optimistic )

To support your optimism, I too feel

Why can't I be as omnipotent as you?

Everybody has their pros and cons. It will be better if we could understand what we are capable of. Just a comparison, if all the fingers are of same size, i think it will not serve any of its purpose.

Raj, even i used to get a lotta thoughts like this. I guess there are a lot to be admired in each individual but unfortunately only others find it.

I find a lot to be admired about u.

There's a special joy in living as urself which cant be matched if u live like someone else.
My 2 cents

Cheers,
Arun

If everyone is like person X, then this world would be too boring. Each of us contribute knowingly or unknowingly to the beauty of this world.

Though I too have felt like you many times in the past, I feel that by seeing the uniqueness in yourself, you start loveing yourself more. That makes you more content. Only when you love yourself, you can love others.

I can't think of a single person in this world who can match the friendly, lovable and thoughtful Raj !
