ENVY.

All Some

  6. hahahahhahahaaha i knew u envied me B...thanks for confessing...now the world knows it!! LOL.

    this is fantastic.

    envy is jealousy on speed, it will consume you if u don't get to the bottom of it and curb it. We envy things we can't have but if you take time to get to the very bottom of that intense intense desire, u may just find out thaat u don't necessary need to be that which u envy to matter....moreover envy takes way less effort and takes up too much time...u can envy something all u want, AND still never get it. know thyself, know thy restrictions, envying something u will NEVER have ages you, also heard it pushes out gray hair and "worry" brow. Admiration takes way less effort anyway....ppl need to try tht instead.

    u brings it everytime B!!! EVERTIME!!!
