Jealousy is the only emotion that can make you cry yourself to sleep every night.

Well, aside from sadness. But I think that's pretty obvious, really.... :o)

In other, more random news, this song rules.... The new Offspring album is great, and also, Stroke 9 are a pretty reasonable band too....

Once again I disagree...

You wouldnt count Love then? Or Grief?

There are many emotions you can cry yourself to sleep over.

Re: Once again I disagree...

Grief comes under the general heading of sadness. It's just another form of being sad.

As for Love - well the only part of love I know that makes somebody cry themself to sleep is jealousy, or some component of that.

Re: Once again I disagree...

Well if we are going to pick things down to their bare bones then Jeliousy is part of greed...

Re: Once again I disagree...

Also: How can you describe heart broken as jelousy?

Re: Once again I disagree...

It is, of sorts. Permit me to expand my previous statement to include associated feelings. If somebody breaks my heart, I am jealous of the next person they have, jealous of anybody who spends time with them that's not me. Jealous that I can't be with them any more.

So in that way, it counts :o)

Re: Once again I disagree...

No. Jealousy and Greed stem from the same place, but are different. Greed suggests... well... a desire for something. Whereas jealousy isn't necessarily that, so much as opposition to somebody else's greed. Sort of.

Everything I say is true, but only if you use my definitions of the words :o)

Re: Once again I disagree...

Or if you incline your mind thusly

tilts head in a James-like fashin

:)

Re: Once again I disagree...

Greed = A desire for something
Jelousy = a desire for something someone else has.

Ie Jelousy is a sub cagory of Greed.


And do you have your own dictionary so we can decipher your posts then? :)

Re: Once again I disagree...

Those are good definitions, and probably the ones people will generally agree with, but I disagree (just to be contrary ;o)

See, it is my opinion that greed is the (perhaps wanton) desire of something. As you said.

But, jealousy isn't that. If somebody starts flirting at my girlfriend but gets no response, I may still get jealous. He has nothing here, but I still get jealous.

I'd say they both stem from the same basic emotion, but they're different in their implementation... Ugh, any second now, I'll start defining method calls for them...

public static void main(string args[]){
getJealous(){
}
}

Ack, must stop...

As for the dictionary, I might write one sometime. I define words exactly as they relate to me, and as such, they're not necessarily as they are meant to be used. Everything in my life comes down to how it applies on a human level, rather than what's written in books :o)

Re: Once again I disagree...

Uh uh, no way... You've just described *envy*, not jealousy. Jealousy is more like wanting to keep what you have, maybe a girlfriend, or your 'being the best'ness...

Fear is an odd emotion. I'd say that fear is merely a vehicle for other emotions - fear of sadness, for instance. Certainly the sort that makes you cry, I would have thought.

*sigh*

That post wasn't even meant to be public anyway :o(

I'll go for that...

OOPS. *hug* Well, I can pretend I didn't see it, if you'd like ... but if you'd like someone to talk to/sob at (any time, not just about this particular thing), mail@deb.f2s.com my dear.

Nah, it's OK - of every single private post I've done lately, this was by far the best one to be public... :o)

As for the offer of somebody to talk to - I shall bear it in mind...

Oh good. :-) :-)

Sounds about right...it's something else I think...more primaeval (which I must've spelt wrong) than everything else that's classed as an emotion.

That post wasn't even meant to be public anyway :o(

May I suggest, sir, that you consider it fate?
And as with beier_d you know where I am if you want to chat (although I can't guarantee I'll be any help...) :)

Fear is certainly more of a primeval drive. Animals have fear, but not necessarily emotions. It's an instinct. In today's civilized society, it's generally a fear of negative emotions, rather than direct harm, but it's still the same - not an emotion, just a thing.

And your offer of help is gratefully noted :o)

I general I think this:

With no offence inteded of cource :)

You have one wacked up mind. :) You take the world around you and insted of dealing with it as it is you try to mould it in your mind to fit you.

This is only a short term fix and if you get good at it, it can be devestating. Be careful friend.

Re: I general I think this:

No offence taken...

*strikes Martin off list of prospective AA people* ;o)

As for my mind - yes, it's kinda messed up.

And I am very good at what I do - awaiting devastation :o)

But on a serious note, please elaborate - I'm finding what you're saying quite interesting, actually :o)

Re: I general I think this:

Well I think there are two points I can elaberate on without writing an essay here:

1) Have you ever seen/read Terry Pratchets Wyrd Sisters?
Well in that Granny Weatherwax "knockes down" the "walls" in the mind off the bad guy, revealing all that she actually is and all that she has actually done. (I can elabrate further but it is long and I recon you can folow my line of thought)

2) Your recent post about your "religion". You qualify every thing you say in terms of science and proof. Your "religion" turns nuances of existance to your interpretation "as an artist uses a canvas" much like your "Gods" in your "religion".

Despite the fact I have no beleifs, I do think that the whole idea of "religion" is based on faith in what cannot be explained or proved in any way... (Again I leave you to follow this line of thought)

Re: I general I think this:

1) Yes. Thankfully, in the real world, the absurd rationalisations which make up my life cannot be destroyed.

Furthermore, as I recall, even after doing that, she Queen didn't give a shit anyway, and liked who she was. I am the same :o)

2) Agreed. Nowt wrong with that :o)

Now, go write me an essay on me :o)

Re: I general I think this:

Now, go write me an essay on me :o)

I wonder if that's where he was last night? Actually writing the thing!? : )

Re: I general I think this:

1) Dont you believe it. A persons own mind is a valuble wepon for an enemy if they know how to use it, and these walls can become too constraining... but that is another story :)

The fact that the queen didnt give a shit is the only fantasy there, and perhapse the method in which GW did the deed.

2)So if you agree, dont you see my point? You described your religion in terms of many explainable things... In my mind this doesnt tend to fit...

As for an essay, feck off!

Re: I general I think this:

1) I have no illusions as to my life. I see the world differently, but that doesn't mean I don't know what the world is actually like. I'm not blind to it, I just choose to ignore it.

2) My "religion" is still a belief - while I can explain it logically and scientifically, it's just a belief. Because none of it is proven - it's scientific fact, much of it, but not proven. It's all explainable, but not necessarily believable by everybody.

As for an essay - please? :o)

Re: I general I think this:

1) As James said the Queen actually liked what she was when Granny showed her her "true self" so it's not necessarily a bad thing...

2) All religion, believe, etc...even science turns the nuances of existance to it's own interpretation. It's how we explain what we are and why.

And you do have beliefs, either that or you're a) and automoton or b) dead. Religion you may not have but I know that you do believe in things.

ahhh...jealousy...yes i would have to agree. seeing that it happens quite often. = )

So why didn't you change it back to Friends-Only? Right, because *random reason*.

Indeeed.

Because people had already replied before I realised.

It wasn't meant to be friends-only. It was meant to be completely private. Friends only wouldn't have changed anything.

Then why did you post it? *waddles off*

Personal reason, I assume :o)
