Insanity Is In The Eye Of The Beholder

Jealousy

Jealousy is such a disgusting trait. It’s really sad that its prevalent in so many. Why can’t people just be happy for others? It’s disheartening to know that people you thought to be friends are secretly wishing for you to fail. It’s disheartening to know that these “friends” undermine all that you’ve accomplished and worked for. What bothers me the most however is when people think they can get the same opportunities as you without doing the work that you did to earn it.

It’s almost a slap in the face. Sure, some people get to where they are because of dumb luck or having connections, but there are still so many people out there that had to go the extra mile and put in work to earn their privileges. Don’t disrespect them by assuming you can just walk right into their shoes. It doesn’t work like that.

True friends will respect the moves you’re making and work towards making their own success story, not stealing the lines from your book. The one good thing that comes from jealousy however, is it opens my eyes to those who are true friends. True friends will help  motivate you and support you as you rise towards your goals. Fake ones will hold you back and limit your potential.

If you’re one of these people who have stored up packs of jealousy, please remove them from your system. Everyone will appreciate and like you much more, trust me. When you stop worrying bout someone else’s life, you might just be able to start working on your own..then you won’t have anything to be jealous of.
