You see her, you can’t help it. She’s walking down the hall with her head held high, strolling through the masses with a energy and confidence that is just pure magnetism. You can’t help but notice it. You can’t help but want to be around her. She’s the ones that makes every man or woman turn their head and tune in to her chatter. She’s not conceited or full of herself. She’s confident. She doesn’t worry about what you think. She is proud of who she is. She is happy with her life.
And then you realize, you like her but you hate her. Ok, not hate. But it’s a shade of green that isn’t healthy. You’re jealous. You’re jealous of her for no good reason. You’re jealous because you want what she has.
One of the worst things we can do is be jealous of our friends. Jealousy is a shitty feeling. It makes us insecure, and petty, and not as fun to be around. It allows the negative energy in. You end up becoming the opposite of what you’re jealous of. You become the anti-Her.
So now what?
Instead of being jealous, appreciate what she has.
Instead of being jealous, think of how you can work on embodying the things you do appreciate about her.
Instead of feeling insecure, feel empowered to make the changes you want/need.
Instead of eating your feelings, write them down or express them to a friend.
Instead of the 50 shades of green, work on the positive energy you have.
After a while, when jealousy tries to rear her ugly little head, you’ll know how to fend it off. You’ll be able to recognize it, understand why, and move on.
