Have you ever met a girl who just has that natural beauty all over and you wished that you could have at least one perfect attribute of hers? Or that girl who seems to be able to attract every male within a 20 mile radius when all you want to do is have the cute guy in your class say hello to you? How about the girl who is amazing at every sport she plays? Or the one that gets straight A’s on every test and paper? Maybe the girl who can sing, dance and play a musical instrument effortlessly. No matter where you look, there is always someone who has some attribute better than yours. Sometimes it seems like you do not carry a single good quality and everyone else has ten.
There have been times when I have done the opposite of envying someone. Instead, I have pitied someone because they seemed to have horrible acne and oily hair, struggled in school and were considered a little odd. I felt sorry for them because I could not see a single quality in them that I would want. I am ashamed of ever thinking this way. Because for me, it is as if I am saying that one of God’s creations, one of his beautiful masterpieces is nothing more than a doodle on a notebook. I have no right thinking someone else has nothing to be in awe of and I have no right doing it to myself.
