Nope, this post has got nothing to do with the movie or even the actress.  My own version of "S.A.L.T"... its about one's emotions: S - Sad A - Anger  L - Love T - Tantrum that sometimes can be irritating and annoying to others. Yeah... some people really do!!   Control your emotions, do not let your emotions control you!!!! "Keeping it classy on Twitter or Facebook does matter, move on to a better status update...!!" 

Just to share another "GOOD TO KNOW" article for reading pleasure....

Jealousy - A Wasted Emotion
By Arthur B Wilson Jr.    


No reason to be jealous
It is so foolish when people waste their time being jealous. Jealousy is a wasted emotion. The fact that another person can do something that aren't doing is wrong. That fact that of wanting something that another person has should not cause jealousy. A jealous person is weak. In my opinion a jealous person is very in character. A jealous person reeks with self-doubt and lack confidence. Rarely does a jealous person truly succeed. They are so preoccupied with their jealousy that they become confused and cannot concentrate or focus. The focus for any person should be on themselves and the goals they choose pursue in their life. They should be more concerned about their education, their career, their spirituality, and their own person life. The level of insecurity is a waste of time. It only drives a person crazy. Jealous people are fools. 

Jealous people have a self-hatred that creates an ignorance that ends up doing more harm than good. 

The point of being jealous of a person when in a marriage or in a romantic relationship ludacris. Any reason for any amount of jealousy means you really don't have much of a relationship. It all starts with a strong level of self-confidence. A feeling of being in control of your own destiny. The realization is that we can't control another person's actions or behavior. What is between two people in a romantic relationship should stay just stay between the two of them. The moment jealousy of another person enters the picture you can destroy the relationship. A third person should never come between a couple in any romantic relationship. 

The major problem is in this country is many people are obsessed with what other people think. This obsession causes people to worry about what others think creates jealousy and insecurity that in many cases causes problems. What other people think is irrelevant. 

Truly successful people don't worry about what other people think or what others do or have. Jealousy will only cause problems and make matters worse. 

Jealous is a waste of time.

Materialism Link to Depression And Anger - Study

By Mike Collett-White

LONDON (Reuters) - Designer labels and fast cars may be the dream of millions, but craving material possessions can cause depression and anger, research released on Tuesday showed.
Australian academics found a positive correlation between materialism -- or an "excessive concern" for material things -- and negative psychological phenomena.

Shaun Saunders, one of the authors of the report from the University of Newcastle, Australia, said it came as no surprise to discover that money can't buy you love.  But there has been very little scientific evidence to support the truism.  "While there is growing concern over the environmental effects of materialism and global consumerism, little attention has been paid to its psychological effects," he told Reuters.  Saunders explained that one source of depression among dedicated consumers was the fact that the property they acquired tended to lose value quickly.

"If your self-worth is invested in what you own, as can be the case in our market-driven society, then these things may not hold their value for very long," he said.  Wanting a sports car would not necessarily cause psychological problems, however, because some enthusiasts could take a genuine interest in the performance of the vehicle and how it is made.

But in most cases materialism is based on people using possessions to define their place in society. This applies both to the "haves" and the "have-nots," Saunders said. "People want to compare themselves to others. In our society the criterion tends to be what you own. "This is the 'Keeping up with the Jones's' idea. It can be a very frustrating experience trying to stay ahead of others, which can be a precursor to anger expression."

It also leads to conformity, based on the notion that the self in a market-based society is treated as a commodity whose value is determined externally.  So before heading off on a shopping spree to lift the gloom, retail therapists should take note: "This may give a person a sense of control through owning something, but the research shows that materialism is negatively correlated with life satisfaction," Saunders said.
