Green Eyed Monster

The green eyed monster appears in a variety of forms.  It frequently starts out when we are young.  There were not as many schools when I was young so you had a mixture of cultures, plus varying degrees of financial levels.  Basically, the poor, middle class and rich attended the same schools..  Many of the wealthy families sent their children to private schools if they were available in their area.  The class distinction became inevitable.  The poor kids hung around with other kids of a lower income and so forth.  What also occurred was the wealthy bullying and picking on anyone not at their parents’ income level. This included putting them down for not wearing the latest fashion or even wearing thrift shop clothes.  Back then there were no free lunches, so you either brought your lunch to school or did without.  As the years progressed so did the unfair treatment towards the children who were not from the rich.  The real problem was that many of the poor and middle class kids worked extra hard to succeed in school while many of the wealthy just floated along. When I was in high school I knew a girl who never wore the same outfit twice.  She made a career in fashion design. In Facebook today, this is still quite applicable. I don’t think they should allow the green eyed monster to continually surface.  It is not good for the average teenager. Did you have these problems when you were in school?
