Why Do I Feel Jealous?

July 31st, 2019

It’s so natural to feel jealous of other people and to envy things about them that you wish that you had.

 
It’s really important to realize that, oftentimes, what we do is we compare our insides to other people’s outsides.

So when you look at me, you might have some impression about me, but you don’t know how long it took me to get my hair done, or how much work it took to put on this makeup, or put together this set, or create these questions, or anything else about me. You have no idea what’s going on behind the scenes, at home with my kids or my husband. We don’t know what’s really going on with people.

So when we get into a compare-mode and we feel jealous about other people, we need to trust that there’s something more going on behind the scenes too, and that we’re all human. Just because people seem a certain way and have something that we don’t have, it doesn’t mean that they don’t have other stuff going on too.
