An Answer to Jealousy

Jealousy can be such an ugly feeling. I’ve spent too much of my life being jealous over a variety of people and situations. What I’ve come to recently realize is when I feel jealous of someone, there is something in my life that I’m not happy with. Are they doing something that I want to be doing? Are they accomplishing some goal that I actually want to accomplish. Are they taking positive steps towards some experience? What are they risking?

So my answer today for me is to take the step. What about you? Who are you jealous of and how can you change your situation?

    Typed a comment and forgot to do the "verification". ANYWAY, I was wondering if you'd read my mind? I was *just* having a jealous moment myself. This post was a great reminder. And, yes, these moments happen when I'm feeling "less than" in one way or another. I try to combat the feelings by making a mental list of all that is right. Tonight that's what helped me :)!

    Liz, I spent too many years "not liking" someone because I was jealous of her…how unproductive was that! But now it's freeing to take a look at my life, first! Thx.
