Everyone knows what I’m talking about, everyone has most likely envied someone else once, but being jealous for wrong things… sucks. This is in no way a personal matter for me, cause being jealous for a TBI survivor, is not that common. And anyways, it’d be really hard for me to take anyone else’s jealousy seriously cause, I mean, come on; I have had to face challenges, which nobody would like to face. The path on which I’ve put myself onto is a rough one, and no one should be jealous for me, but neither should anyone pity me. I am the one who took this road years ago, and I am the one dealing with the consequences.
This in coming up now, cause today I met a friend, who has to deal with jealousy on a daily basis, Robin Packalen. We went for a lunch and among everything nicer we were talking about, this topic came up. I can understand what people envy in Robin, he’s a handsome young, very nice and a humble fella with a golden voice, everyone should want to be like that. But what I can’t realize, is why can’t we be happy for each other’s success?!
When something is given to you for free, something you don’t respect at all, even though it’s very good for you, I can understand why people hate on that. But Robin on the other hand, has had to work for everything he has. He does almost everything himself. The thing I really like in his attitude though, is that his career is in no way a burden for him, I’m not sure it’s even a job! He just lives his dream, loves it and just happens to be kicking ass in it. Let’s let the boy, and everyone else alike, enjoy their success. I will.
