Jealousy is Outdated & Overrated
I am not going to sit here and tell you that I don’t get jealous… Because I most certainly do, but I am working on it… and that is what makes a difference.
Definition of jealousy: “Jealousy is a feeling or state of resentment, bitterness, or hostility toward someone because they have something that you don’t.”
Everyone does it, but I have created this to help you with ways to stop being jealous and learn to be happy for someone while creating your own happiness. There are so many cruel people in the world, and it is because they aren’t satisfied with what they have. The problem is you, and you can fix it. It starts off by learning the times that you may be feeling jealous. Stop and think about it.
A way that I have learned to be less jealous and more happy for people are the quotes that I come across on Pinterest. They are inspiring, uplifting, and brutally honest. Sometimes honesty hurts, but it’s much needed.
Another way that I have learned to overcome jealousy is by Prayer. Praying to the good Lord to help you in times when you start to feel jealous can really inspire you to be a better person. Instead of talking bad about someone, understand them. Cheer for them. Root for them.
Lastly, help yourself. Create your own happiness in life and you will start to understand others a lot more. You will learn to respect others opinions, goals, and traditions. It costs zero dollars to be a kind human being - and believe it or not, jealousy is a huge reason for the cruelness that happens in today’s world. Choose to be a better person.
It doesn’t happen overnight, but every night that you work on it you become happier. So, I challenge you to overcome jealousy. Root for people, try not to bad mouth people (even behind their back) and instead pray for yourself, pray for them, and pray for others who have the same issue.
