Jealousy is a cunt, so dump her.
Jealousy and rage I think are the two greatest negative motivating factors in most people, in my current experience. This piece is about jealousy, rage Ive written enough about already, and how Ive come to greater understanding and happiness by looking inward and making efforts to change negative decision making.. AKA How I stopped being a jealous twat.. What motivated me to write this piece is that I went shopping with my friend Bradford today, well he shopped and I watched actually. Some of you may know Bradford as he is the great creative force/ taste level behind Fab.com. Ive known Bradford for a couple years now and we became fast friends and very close I feel. I feel like Im one of the few people that can actually tell him "Those jeans make you look fat, like fatter then you already are, like your ass looks like a SCHOOL BUS CRASHED INTO A PREGNANT RHINOCEROS." and if you knew Bradford he is the man who has everything, but this advice is something HE CAN USE. I think when you have so many people taking your orders its important to have someone you can trust that will tell you the truth, good or bad, and I think Im pretty good erring slightly on sensible which is hard for him sometimes. I know even in my own little bubble that being my own boss can tend to make me a douche once in a while because Im so used to telling people what to do, and never being told what to do. So I actually appreciate a good "read" from a friend. Ive mentioned him on the blog a few times here and there and I feel we have really been beneficial to one another and our lives are actually better because each of us are in them. In the time that Ive known Bradford he's gone from "normal" to "wealthy", well at least compared to most of my friends and myself. Bradfords success has been hard for some people. I can't blame them, its hard to see someone buy three Warhols, a pile of Prada shoes, and a new apartment and post it on Facebook all in one month when you work your ass off in a homeless shelter, but the fact is a lot of people roll their eyes and I feel this jealousy is a deceptively self destructive emotion FOR THEM.
