Wise Jealousy

Posted on November 5, 2012

What do you do when you’re jealous of someone? Do you:  

a) stew in the jealousy?

b) play a little ego game where you take the other person down/insult them/rip them apart/list all their flaws (to yourself or to others)?

c) feel guilty that you’re not happy for this person but are instead, quite jealous?

None of these really do anything for anyone, especially not you.

Next time you find yourself jealous of someone, figure out exactly what that person has that you would like.  Then find a way to achieve that goal for yourself.

That’s all that jealousy really is anyway-an emotion that reminds us what we would like to create for our own lives.
