chapter 11

To anonymous,

Exams are over. Finally, now I can spare enough time-sharing my experiences with you. It’s 2 a.m. right now. I fell asleep in the afternoon so right now I’m really energetic.

Did I tell you that my birthday is coming? It’s on next month. This year I’m not as excited as I was the previous year.  Everything is so cold right now. I don’t refer to the temperature. I mean there is no excitement. Maybe because last year I turned into a teenager or last year my few friends were not teens. Confused? Aren’t you?

People say that during teenage we all change emotionally. So maybe I showed some noticeable changes last year but nobody bothered. But now when some of my pals are turning thirteen, I notice a lot of difference. Although they are changing but it will have an impact on my life too.

Amongst the worst feelings during teenage is ‘envy’. Some of us get jealous of others success in life while the others get jealous someone’s success in winning the lifelong trust of others. But it’s natural.

It’s just like a girl admiring her friend’s hair and wishing for the same luster and length.  But she does not know that somebody else too admires her lock of hair. Just because her pony is behind and she could not see her own beauty.

In the same way we admire the beauty, qualities and talents of others. Some of us appreciate it while some get jealous of the appreciation and they can’t discover their own talents.

Maybe you don’t get what I say. Sometimes I mess up with my thoughts so much that even I don’t know what I speak. But I know that by now, you must understand me.

Here are some beautiful lines,” Envy is thin because it bites but never eats.”  ~Spanish Proverb, “He that is not jealous is not in love. “ ~St. Augustine, “Envy among other ingredients has a mixture of the love of justice in it. We are more angry at undeserved than at deserved good-fortune.” – William Hazlitt.  

 Well it’s time for me to sleep. Got to go. Wait for my next letter. Bye.

Yours lovingly’
