    Envy

    I have a strong pattern around “envy”. It’s partly the background I grew up in. Back in Argentina, people will resort to anything to put on airs and graces, trying to impress everyone, while they simultaneously lose their sh!t whenever someone has something they don’t. Putting on airs, losing their sh!t. Rinse, repeat. It’s not a pretty sight, or a healthy state of mind to be in. It’s mostly seen on insecure people. And most always on *women*. People turn nasty.

    Weird Things About Me

Do you, Mary? DO YOU???” Ehm… Well, yes… Much like I believe in all sorts of things, so long as I don’t have to do anything actually difficult. Like… make myself vulnerable by revealing some of my flaws to the world… I’d much rather show a perfect life. Granted, that means I have to “hide away”…
