 Jealousy. One of the Seven Deadly Sins. We all have it. We all experience it, but

when is it too much?  When it effects everything, and others. I’m a florist, a very

creative and your style shows in your work. I am all about doing things different,

making people see things in a new way, and also prefer asymmetrical designs. I

work with a woman who has been doing floral design for about 25 years.  She has a

customer base, and has her own style. I started at my employers about a year ago,

with much experience, it was actually coincidence that I got hired because my

friends mom told me to try applying there one more time, so I did. I sent them an

email one day, then next day I got a call to come in for an interview, and then next

day I had the job. I was informed that there are many people that have their own

style, and don’t like other’s work, but not to let that bother me. Right off the bat, I started out doing things as if I had been doing it for

years, and everyone was amazed. I became friends with everyone, including the woman, she “took me under her wing”, hence the

quotations, and tried to teaching me her style. When she realized that I do my own things, I’m more of a trend setter rather then just

a follower, she turned against me. She back stabbed me to the point of literally destroying my work. I, being multi-talented, do not

have a department like everyone else. Normally your either in Wedding, Funeral, Silk, Dish Garden, Wholesale, or Sales Floor/

Phone sales. I do all of them, I now have a customer base that people specifically come in to get my work, and I also design the sales

floor. It is very rewarding, but also at the same time I feel like a doll being pulled apart. I have so many things I am in control of, but

yet at the same time I don’t have control of them. Floral design is a hit and miss career, either you have it or you don’t. Design comes

naturally to some, not to all. I am grateful for my talent, but at sometimes I feel as though it’s almost too competitive. I am all about

new styles and trying to do things different. We all have our own style, some will like it; some won’t. We just need to accept that not

all people are the same. That’s what makes this world go round.
