Oh dear. It's late at night and I have a exhaustingly long dance rehearsal tomorrow, but here I am in bed, squinting into the brightness of my phone, because I felt the need to blog.
This sort of goes along with my last post. It's a post about feelings.
I'm assuming that you've all felt jelous at one time or another. Whether it was the horrible sickly jelousy that sits at the pit of your stomach eating away at you, or maybe just a little bit of envy. Either way, it's not a pleasant feeling. This is another one of my negative personality traits, not always jelousey per say, but comparing myself to other people. And that can often times lead to jelousy.
I think that jealousy often comes from being
B) a perfectionist
Those, in my opinion, are the two main factors. It may not be true for everyone, but at least some.
So, what to do when suffering from jelousy??
Well, in one case where I was sickly jelous of someone, I cried a lot, beat my self up, then realized (after several monthes)
"This girl has done NOTHING to earn such negative feeling from me. I should try to be as nice to her as possible."
And I'm telling you right now from personal experience, it works quite well. I actually cried ( not happy tears I can assure you!) when I said goodbe to that girl when she moved from her summer house back to where she lives the rest of the year. We were never best of buds, but we were pals.
So whether you struggle with jelousy or not, I hope you found this short little post somewhat thought provoking!
I love you all!
