Envy of the Free

Who was someone you were envious of in high school and why? (Serendipity Bible Fourth Edition, page 1579).

More than fashion or physical strength or beauty, I admired most those students who embodied free-spirited prowess and were not severely buttoned-down by fear in social situations--who spoke their minds unencumbered by social pressures.  Those I admired most were outspoken not in anger or angst, but often colored their comments with friendly kindnesses.  I have, by the way, never outgrown my envy of the beneficently free; and have prayed for the same in my life.  In this sense, I'm constrained and somewhat embarrassed to say, all my high school love consummations were platonic.
