Jealousy Defined

For many years now we always hear the world Jealous, Jealousy. Jealousy is not a good trait to develop. Jealousy and that bond you once had can ruin friendships, relationships, and so much more. It is unbelievable what jealousy can do taint a persons reputation and so much more. Unfortunately there will always be jealous people out there and we cannot do anything about it. It is something that has been around for so many decades. When people start getting jealous of the other person, they do everything in their power to eliminate that persons happiness, and good nature. He or she will not stop until damage has been done. Here are a few scenarios on a person who can be jealous:

- Someone who has a golden heart, who has so many friends and supporters in life When a Jealous person who does not have all those.

- Someone who is established well at work and who is well off in life when a jealous person is not.

- Someone who doesn’t miss all the action going on and who is always there in everything, when a jealous person does not and cannot go to all of them.

- Someone who can cook and clean very well, when a jealous person cannot.

There are so many ways a person can be jealous. Everyone is not the same and do not think the same way, and some people are always out to hurt others, and to get others out there. Even if it means to destroy that person. There are people out there who are so jealous, that they take things to extreme measures, and break laws, threaten that person, and do the worst, attempting to kill that person, that there is something that extremely jealous people would do and would be capable of doing. It is unbelievable how terrible it is.

Now, sometimes Jealousy can be good by being jealous on good things, like seeing someone who has good shape, who is fit, and we look at them and say I am jealous of that persons body, maybe I should start taking care of my own body and do the same so I can look and feel healthy the way that person is, and so that I can start fitting into nice outfits and stuff. I think that sort of jealousy is fine, but do not let that jealousy get to you and do things that you would regret later in life, but I feel that we should be comfortable in our own skin and we shouldn’t let Jealousy control us, empower us and take over our lives or else a lot of problems will arise and we won’t know what would hit us.

Just be mindful and take it easy. It can save all the hassle in the long run. Be who you are and leave jealousy at the door.

  1. Great advise, although jealousy in some people is part of their nature like a sickness and sometimes hard to control, they for sure need treatment, as you said certain kind of jealousy is good it actually helps you to motivate and if you love some one you should be a little jealous of him or her to show care and friendship. very nice blog….

  2. Just watched the 3 part Hatfields & Mccoys on the history channel– jealousy ,bitterness destroying generations of lives and souls , horrifying that this is a true story!

  3. There can be two major signs that a person might be suffering from pathological jealousy in paranoid personality disorder. The first one is that the person concerned has a pattern of mistrust. Secondly they are constantly thinking that other people are ‘out to get them’.

    This condition can often be overlooked or dismissed as something that is not that important. If a person is suffering from this condition, they will have a very difficult time trusting people.

    They will often think that people are trying to trick them, deceive them or harm them. They will also often hold grudges and be very unforgiving of perceived insults. It goes further than the basic jealousy issues. This type of behavior can be difficult for friends or family to deal with. When a person with this problem overreacts to a comment or even counter attacks someone whose intentions were not malicious, it can upset everyone around them. These people can also have a difficult time discussing their reactions because they don’t trust people very easily. Rather than wanting to talk about their behavior and get help, they will often keep things inside because they believe if they talk about it, it will be used against them. This type of behavior can make any type of relationship difficult to sustain.

    Psychotherapy is the main treatment that has been used to help people with this condition. If this initial stage of distrust can be breached, then the therapy has been proven to work. There are also some medications available to treat the condition, but they do not get to the root of the problem.

  4. We confuse jealousy and envy so much that the words have improperly become interchangeable. In truth, envy is when we desire to have something, someone or a quality that another has in her possession. It’s a synonym of coveting. Jealousy is when we succumb to the fear that we may lose something of which we are already in possession.

  5. Well said Talin. I will admit to being jealous of my sister for getting an iPad2. I told her this when she got it, but it is not a “you have it, I will make sure you aren’t happy with it” kind of jealousy. It’s more a “ooh I’m jealous, I would love to have one of them” kind. We even have a laugh about it sometimes.

    I do know people who are so jealous that can, will and have hurt people through it.

  6. Jealousy is a lower feeling. I do not understand it and cannot relate to it. I’ve never been jealous of anyone, ever, but, on the contrary, I know some people who envy me with a passion. I try to avoid them like the plague.

    • Perhaps it is an honor to be seen with envious eyes; you inspire someone, but they don’t know they can also have what they want. If anything is possible if one commits themselves and invests their time, talents, and resources, then what wonders could those people who are envious of you create!? Perhaps you inspire them and can help them see how to create what they want to…. :)

      • Hmm… thank you Angel for the kind words, but these people I refer to are way base. They are always plotting ways to put you down and hurt you, deliberately and with evil intentions. It’s best if I avoid them as much as possible.

  7. It’s an important moment to find a jealousy of oneself against the other. Then one could change the jealousy to respect. Evil manner would turn into respectful.

  8. Great post! Some people now days don’t even recogize their jealousy. The negative pours out almost immediately when confiding in them about your accomplishments. I have found that sometimes (if you care enough) encouragement to help them tap into the greatness in them will give them a little motivation to do the things that interest them. Otherwise, its best to stay away and pray for them that they find their own way!

  9. (it may not be on for a few hours, i’m pretty selective about who i nominate… this stage takes me forever. lol. so if it’s not there tonight, come on my page again tomorrow)
