      Oh yes I have been here.I lost what I thought was a really great friend over petty jealousy.The sad thing is if it had been the other way around I would have been over the moon.I do know as I class these people as true friend because surely they would want the best for you.

        what was your news? if you dont mind me asking....I have had good news recently, and told 2 people, and decided not to tell anybody else as I dont want to loose friends. What good is good news, without friends?

            If you can't tell your friends your good news, they are not friends at all !

                Stick to your good friends. It seems you have 2. That's enough. I prefer 2 good friends than a lot of dumb heads smile

          well I think you should tell us but my good news was that i inherited some buisnesses and a rather large house and the outcome was not nice. So you could say it was like a lottery win.

            dennisemattposted 8 years ago in reply to this

            How long ago? do you still have to pay on the house? ohhh a large house? How nice!! and the business? something you can keep, or sell? Inheriting means somebody died tho? thats sad, and really not a lottery. Not somethign you would want a friend to have to go thru. see, it stinks, to be so happy and people have to be selfish and yucky. I understand, it is hard to be not jealous, but...I personally love love love hearing other peoples good news. In my real not on hubpages life, I hear EVERYBODIES bad news. I am glad I can help people, but I just love it when something happy happens!!!! GOOD FOR YOU!!!!!!

              Ha ha yes but it was not through death in fact it was through marriage i don't think the friend would have acted that way through a negative. The two positives done that .

      I am not jealous of your greenness. I do wish I could be, green is a truly lovely color, but it wasnt meant for me. I am glad you are enjoying it, and hows your bear? I do hope its been good weather for him to peek at bikinis!!

    I did have one jealous friend once...jealous because of my education and moving to Hawaii to be with a man who loves me and wants to marry me. But I had so many friends who cared she was outnumbered 3 to 1 basically. But that was mainly the good news gone wrong lol. She and I still talk once in a while but we aren't as close as we use to be.

      dennisemattposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      well, no one should be jelaous of an education. Obviouslly you worked for that, so you desrve every bit of what you get. And do you still live in Hawaii? How nice!! Its cold here, right now...

        Yes I think it's the whole she's 30 still living with her parents thing and has no boyfriend. Misery loves company as they say.

        But my other two best friends are my age, 26, live with their mom still and works but they were totally supportive and wanted me to push myself. While another best friend went to college too and pushed me as well. and they were ecstatic when I married my husband and none of them have ever dated.

        So different strokes for differnt folks I guess lol.

        And no I live in Cali now. We moved back last year.

    Thanks Dennisematt. I appreaciate it I was very proud of myself too and was mad at her but then I looked at it as if I was in her shoes and like my mom had said, she probably fells like she is being left behind.

    but n-e-ways this goes for anyone...if you ever have good news you can tell me. smile I like hearing other ppls good news. Makes me happy!

        Advice....stay away fro Waikiki as much as possible. It is definitely a tourist trap and you miss out on all of the other beauty of the island.

      You should be proud, and it is good to be able to see the to the other side's view, even if its annoying. Makes you bigger.
      I live next to a power line. Well, ugh, its a long story...my husband an sdI bought a hosue 10 years ago cuz it was real cheap and had good land wiht it. It was cheap, we needed to to SOOOOO much work. But we were happy. then, almost 2 years ago, teh electric co. contacts us, and they are expanding the power line, and long story short, we finally got a good deal. A really good deal. Its not like we are lazy and stuff, we had no idea this was gunna happen, we were all set to just live here and work hard, and honestly dealing with all this these past few months has been hell. And I am soo happy its over. We will be debt free, our mortage will be paid off. Its a big deal to me, but everyone has been so snotty, now I feel guilty.

    Did they have some issue with the power line or is this a case of out right jealousy. Family can be the worse as the old saying goes,"You can choose your friends but not your family". I think it's a great start for you there are plenty of people who have been given a free ride up well so what. Those who win on the lottery do not work for it they just buy a ticket it isn't hard. You enjoy it and as for the lack of friends going by your pic it's because you are far to pretty and nice.

      Well, first I told my Mother, and I really should have expected her reaction. She is not a positive person. My husbands little brother and his new wife were with us when we got the news, so they found out that way. They are young, adn just starting out, so I can see how they would be jealous. It will work out fine with them. But then we told my mohter and father in law and they really didnt react at all. SO I just wanted soemone to be happy with. I am feeling better today, I have my husband, my kids are healthy, we dont have to move, and I can celebrate right here at home on my own.  smile

        You are much nicer than I am. I can't see any good reason for them to be jealous. It's nothing bad for them, they should just be pleased for you.

        As I said family can sometimes be the worse when it comes to finacial issues. You really need to concentrate on your new start and put all this behind you. You sound like a very nice person and I am sure things will change for the best.
