@fullyalive:  we are all jealous of other people at times. Usually those who we think have it better than us. You don’t really dislike this girl, you’re envious because you seem to think you want what she has….but eveyone is different and what works for her would not necessarily work for you.

As hard as it is, you shouldn’t be focussing on other people. You need to work out what is going to make you happy….a little therapy? Join a club of some kind? a dating site?

I’m really sorry you feel like this but really, I think a lot of us would too. You have every right to feel sad about your own loss but you have the future ahead of you. Try to think about how that can make you happy..

I don’t know any more about your situation than what you told us, but I agree you should seek therapy or counseling of some sort. You shouldn’t punish your family or your SIL for what happened to you. You say your mother cried when you got engaged – maybe it was because she could see that this guy was obviously not for you, and it played out that way (the relationship ending).

I also think you should stop believing that this girl has never suffered. You do not know her personal, emotional, or familial history and it’s not nice of you to think that just because she has scholarships and a marriage, that somehow she is weaker than you and has never suffered.
