The Green-Eyed Monster Within

There isn’t one person who is immune to the emotions that are found with jealousy and envy. At some point in life, we have all experienced it. Either it is at work, within friendships, or something else; jealous and envy are very real feelings that have a way of effecting your life. Fortunately, there is a way to not let these emotions overpower your life. There are ways of getting through it, but it’s also important to understand the difference between being jealous and being envious.

A Disappointed Heart

I rarely find myself disappointed by others. Perhaps it’s because I try to think of the worst situation, but hope for the best.  It was something that I was taught years ago, but every so often someone will bring about those feelings that I feel frozen, and my heart breaks into what feels like a million pieces.

A Box of Tissues

I watch movies where two people break up and in the end, rekindle their relationships. I wish it were that easy. In reality, there is pain and hurt involved. Getting over someone isn’t all roses and lilies. Break-ups can turn a person’s world upside down. Think about in your life how many times that you…
