Sad thing is, our peers, even family, don't want you to climb higher. It subconsciously makes them feel lower. Although, in many cases, it may just be a generic term when they can't think of anything else to say. I can visualize myself saying that to someone..... and honestly say it would not be out of jealousy. ..... I have often wanted to discuss this topic, but thought it would be weird to imply others were jealous of myself or family. And for the record, we almost live paycheck to paycheck, so money is not my mindset. It's like when something that your proud of and wish to talk about, you sense that you should not, because you know your friends will get that blank look on their face, never comment, and then it's awkward. So.... you find yourself, not being yourself. I'm not real good at it, but my wife has shown me much. She is an encourage er. Everyone has to love her because she never has an unkind thing to say about anyone, but more to the point, has something good to say to everyone. People love to be around someone like this. LOL, it has to be natural, not like me, trying to mimic her, otherwise it comes out really weird. I wish I were a natural at it. She makes the perfect friend. One who builds you up, rather than gets jealous. I honestly wish I had friends like that. I recently made the comment that "my circle" was getting smaller and smaller. I did not mean death. I meant that I realized that some were not real friends.

With the 50cent cracker packs, we can’t help but smile when they say. Must be nice 👍!

I will say, the older I get, the less likely I'm willing to put up with stupidity. Seems to run rampant in people these days....and I'm just tired of putting up with it.[/QUOTE]
Am I the only one that absolutely hates that term. I've got friends and family that use that term anytime something good happens to folks. My wife can post photos of say our trip to the beach, and be asked about it, after she says we just needed to get away for a few days they will respond. Must be nice. Or you get a new toy or something, and you run I to a friend with it. Then you get a, must be nice. Personally I think it's a term of absolute jealousy, and it drives me nuts. Am I the only one that gets annoyed by that term?
