It is the green that clouds your vision as you watch your dream job go to another, as you watch your unrequited love fall for someone else, as you yearn for the life of someone else.
It is the feeling of lack within your own self that another doesn’t seem to feel.
It crosses your path as your best friend accomplishes things that seem impossible to you; You want to be happy, but this voice from within screams ‘why them?’
It is the crushing sensation in your stomach as you compare yourself against the models that grace each magazine cover.
It’s the perceived imbalance in the cards that you’ve been dealt and no matter how much you strive to make things even, you’re left wanting.
