I have serious and life threatening health problems that limit my energy and ability to travel, engage in sport, socialise and do stuff around the house. Although I am able to work full time, money is still very short so that we have a lot of work to do on our home that we cannot afford to do and neither can we afford holidays or weekends away. I'm in my 40s and my husband is in his 50s. It has always been like this and there is no prospect of any change unless we win the lottery :rolleyes:
Some of the time I can deal with our lives and accept that this is my kamma and I can also acknowledge the good things in our lives. However, other times I feel very resentful and envious of people with good health and plenty of money. It just seems so unfair (she said childishly!!).
Does anyone have a practice or advice that I can engage in specifically when I meet or have contact with those who seem so much better off? I don't think that my envy or resentment affects my behaviour - I would be appalled if it did - but it does affect my state of mind!
