Time For Your “Mind Gym” – What Makes You Jealous?


Jealousy

Com’on don’t deny it… You’re jealous!! I’m not referring to the romantic type here & it doesn’t have to be that kind carrying all sorts of negative connotations! You’re unknowingly comparing yourself with others most times & get in the state upon your own negative evaluation.

It can stir you to raise your standards when you say; “I want to be exactly that!” You observe & then imitate; keep at it till you’re there; & then you get to celebrate. But what happens if those feelings you incubate? & no action, to be there, you demonstrate?

This is when the sum of negative feelings defining jealousy compound: fear, resentment, insecurity, & the like… in the heart, these go round & round. They distort the thinking, leave one bitter, & immerse one deep down in the ground.

I can’t be “this”; I won’t have “that”; Someone else is taking what I attempt at…. Thoughts like these & more can keep one victim of creepy anticipations. Why fret & fuss when it’s up to you to become better not bitter with frustrations? Why envy others for what they have when you can focus on your own good foundations?

“Jealousy can either push you to outperform what you used to be, or keep you flaming & boiling in one place to high degrees.” ~ 3Ds

And we both know that there is so much brilliance in your core; That being different doesn’t necessarily have to make you sore; That you can always do more, be more, & spread your wings beyond any shore…

Perhaps you don’t focus much on the fact that you’re so loved; That many times people, here, look at YOU & say “I wished I were that!”. Perhaps you don’t know that all angel near or far are fascinated by your grace; & that in your trace, they’re in a non-stop race…

If only you know there is no real good reason to be jealous just now. Sure, there’s always room to grow & improve, but as you are, in current times, you illicit more than a “wow”!!

Aiming always to lift up your mood, I bow before your greatness in awe… 🙂

    Good morning! You are always helping people to look at topics in new ways! I have never perceived of myself as a jealous person. I admit that I sometimes wonder why some other people manage to do things I work hard at, but maybe don’t succeed at them as they do. Still, I guess I am not a competitive person. The one I most compete with is myself., I agree that getting bogged down in jealousy is not good for people, but had not really thought of jealousy as being a possible positive force–a motivator for us to do better. As always, a good and thought-provoking post. Thanks!

      Awwww 😉 I always appreciate your positive feedback Iris 🙂 many thaaanks 🙂 i must admit you’re among the few who keep me going 🙂 with few reading my posts, I decided to slow down & write a post every two weeks (not weekly). I was struggling to have extra time to be consistent & I found myself in constant over-whelm when the reward to squeeze the time to write was as minimal 😦 I hope I made the right decision 🙂
      Thanks again Iris 🙂

        Dania, do what your instinct and needs tell you in the moment. You can always change your decision at a later date if you feel moved to post more often. I wish I had answers. I, too, struggle with getting more readers, more comments, etc. If I come up with any new ideas, I will surely share them with you.
