Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Yeah and a question

Ive been tagged and will get to that in a bit but, I just learned from dear old husband that Mr Steven Curtis Chapman and Avalon will be in Atlanta September 1st. The radio station wont be announcing this until later today but we looked at their websites..Woo Hoo! I am sooo excited.

Here is a question for you? IN your mind, whats the difference between jealousy and resentment?

I need some new blogs to read and to add to my blogroll? Have any suggestions?? Thanks, I have now added 10 new blogs to read.. Very cool suggestions!

hmmm... getting deep on us. : )
Jealousy is simply wanting something someone else has. Resentment is when someone does something to offend you or hurt you and you push it down instead of dealing with the feeling. Resentment is that feeling of unresolved anger towards that person that you can't quite put your finger on. has a ton of blogs on their blogroll to check out.

Resentment is an emotion of anger felt as a result of a real or imagined wrong done...
Jealousy typically refers to the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that occur when a person believe a valued relationship is being threatened by a rival.

Both of these decriptions came from Wikapedia so take it witha grain of salt..

Actually the concert is free! And the radio station hosting it said they will announce artists on June 25.

To me, Jealousy is either wanting something that someone else has or wanting them to leave something of yours alone while resentment is holding a grudge.
You can be jealous when someone is flirting with your husband without being resentful of her because of it.

My two pennies on resentment and jealousy--Jealousy is when you have something or someone you don't want to share with someone specific or with anyone at all. When I think of jealousy, I think of guarding. God is a jealous God, we are told. He wants our first love.

Resentment is what comes when we feel are wronged in some way by someone. They may have something that we think we should have, someone's attention that we desire, some ability that is being recognized when we think we should get noticed.

Jealousy is closely bound and akin to envy and covetousness. You can be resentful and not jealous or vice versa, but the two, often as not go hand in hand.

I do not think God is insecure at all--His jealousy is righteous & deserved, but as humans I think we feel these emotions many times out of insecurity.

Now, my bloggy suggestions:


Shalee's Diner

Overwhelmed with Joy

Callapidder Days

And I totally second Annie.

Jealousy can be a fleeting thing, like I am so jealous of anyone that is in Hawaii today, but resentment has all to do with being annoyed or mad about someone having something all the time. Its something that stays with you much longer.

any of the blogs on my expansive blogroll would be great additions for your reading pleasure.

I think jealousy is an "immediate" response, many times before you even know the person(s) that caused you to feel jealous. Many times the way a person's life "looks" may be only a facade.
I think resentment is an emotion that grows over time. Resentment is caused, in my opinion, by experiencing hurt, rejection and/or other feelings that make you feel "less" or that the feelings you experience or thoughts that you express are dismissed as unimportant!
Either emotion is destructive - not so much to the person(s) at which they're directed - but to the person who allows those emotions to take hold of them!
Great question.

I can't think of better definitions of jealousy and resentment than you've already gotten.

I'm not sure who referred you to my blog, but I'm glad you like it. :)

I'm always happy to meet fellow adoptive (or prospective) adoptive parents!

If you're interested in reading about our first adoption journey, you can check out my It wasn't supposed to work this way 10 part series.

We're trying to adopt again, possibly through the state. You can read about our experiences thus far if you click on my "Adoption #2" label. :)

Speaking of reading, I need to read some more of your blog and see where you're at in your China adoption journey.

Love both of them so much and how cool the concert is FREE!! Have you ever heard of 4Him? Naturally, they have gone their separate ways now, but their albums (cds as the yound folk call 'em) are so good. I bet you would like them.

This has already been covered, but in few words, jealousy is our knee-jerk reaction when someone encroaches on 'our' territory or gets something they didn't seem to want or need as badly as we think we want or 'need' it. It's just a response. Resentment, on the other hand, we have to work at over time. It's what happens when we don't have enough control to overcome our intial jealous response.

Susanne said...

Good question!! I tend to think of jealousy more related to wanting something someone else has to the point where you feel negatively towards them. Resentment can be towards what someone has done to you, not necessarily what they HAVE. At least that is the way I see it. Both are very negative emotions and can cause us to find ourselves bound by the chains of the enemy if we are not careful.
Thanks so much for adding me to your blog roll. I am so honored, and don't you just love Miss Karen?? She's too sweet!!! Have a great evening!
