- According to the Collins Cobuild dictionary, jealousy is the feeling of anger or bitterness which someone has when they think that another person is trying to take a friend or possession away from them or when they wish that they could have the qualities or possessions that another person has.
Today I saw two friends fall apart because of jealousy and it brought to my mind how jealousy which start so little in our heart can become big and shatter something within seconds. Some people don’t show their jealousy to you directly but they hold it against you in their mind which makes you wonder how it came to be.
Jealousy is one of the most common and unsettling we have and it tends to bring out the worst in us. Relationships have crashed because of this “disease” called jealousy.. And the most painful thing is that when it happens you tend to go down memory lane to remember the times you helped the person when he/she needed it.They look for every slight opportunity to bring you down, they think your goals are useful because they are afraid you will do better than them, they do everything possible to bring down any good relationship you are in. They don’t want any chance of you being happy.That’s all what jealousy can cause and many more.
Truly indeed “jealousy is a disease “and some people need to be cured of it, before they die from it.
We shouldn’t let jealousy to kill the goodness in us even if it seems that you just want to make the person feel the same way you felt. Don’t go the wrong path just overcome because it’s many of life challenges and temptations.
Have you ever felt that someone dislikes you for no negative reason at all…..what was your reaction?
