    I once was friends with a girl who couldn't be happy at others good fortune no matter what. She was jelous, cunning, sly and went out of her way to make others feel unhappy. Like someone else said, people who have feelings like those are like a virus.

    I truly feel happy when members of my family achieve happiness. I desire happiness for my immediate family more than for myself. Especially my parents. Also for a few of my close friends.

    yes, i feel I can be honestly happy for someone. It's nice when people around you are happy, it rubs on you.
    honestly I never have any bad thoughts about anyone. even if they have hurt me, i forgive them. bad feelings are too heavy to carry around.

    honestly..it depends where i'm at in me life, if im havin a truly terrible ole time, and i see someone else bein extremely happy, i do get a tad bit jealous, tis natural ey? but, althou i may be jealous, i am happy for em...i just wish that i had wha they got. ya get me?

    but! fortunatly! im great! and when i see other folk doin well, it makes me feel reaaaally great!!!

    cant be forgettin that we're all lucky.

    our problems are nothin in comparison ta the stuff others are copin with,,,..
    which is why! we need more peops like sinor birdy, spreadin the love!!:)

    xxxxxxx!

    I can never truly be happy for others.

    I come from a strong, immigrant family. I was raised on guilt and jealousy.
