9 Things Your Friend Secretly Wishes She Could Tell You
Good friends tell each other everything. Unless, of course, they live on planet Earth, where people sometimes can't even whisper what they really want you to know.
"I'm 99 percent happy and 1 percent joyful-jealous."
You know when you're living an envy-making moment. Whatever it is—you just got a fancy new job, you bought the perfect house, you regularly post awe-inspiring pictures of the gorgeous cocktails your thoughtful new boyfriend makes you—your friend is happy for your success; of course she is. But unless her first name is Mother and her last name is Teresa, she probably also suffers a quick twinge of "G#%@$%*, WHY ISN'T THAT HAPPENING TO ME?" I mean, when the tables are turned, don't you? Which is why judicious posting and/or tweeting of such moments signals you are among the most thoughtful of 21st-century citizens.
