Jealousy strikes


The baser instict is bubbling up within me. The green eyed monster is raising its ugly head in the inner recesses of my heart. I can feel its presence every time a relatively young, healthy person posts a photo of himself/herself getting a Covid vaccination shot. The good in me is preaching patience, perseverence, waiting for my turn at getting vaccinated, the evil in me is whispering “jump the line, look s/he did, so why not you? Once you get your vaccination you can get on that plane and go see your parents. Do it.”

I am having a difficult time suppressing the jealousy. The lure of seeing my parents is so great yet I know I will not jump the line. The rule follower in me will continue to follow the rules. And I will continue to be jealous of all those who are getting the vaccine and planning to go see their loved ones or going back to work…..like educating our children. I know, I know they should be ahead in line but I will continue to be…..wistful. Now, that’s a better word than jealousy.

That is it. This blog is about vaccination envy. 🙄

  1. Every state has different vaccine rules as to who is eligible. Stop beating yourself up. Haven’t we crushed ourselves and each other enough. Every person who gets vaccinated exponentially saves like 600 other people. If there’s a chance to get it, get it. The goal is everyone getting the vaccine. Fair is a myth we tell ourselves. I know 90 year old frail people who survived COVID and younger healthier people who didn’t. Life’s not fair
