BE­HIND GREEN EYES

CLEO (Malaysia) - - YOUR LIFE, YOUR RULES! -

Jeal­ousy can rear its ugly head in dif­fer­ent ways. Here are three kinds of fren­e­mies to be wary of.

THE DEFLECTO When you share with her good news about yourself, she al­ways treats it like it’s no big deal and redi­rects the con­ver­sa­tion to her­self say­ing things like, “You got pro­moted? That’s great, but wait till you hear what hap­pened to me!”

THE PAS­SIVE-AG­GRES­SIVE In­stead of ig­nor­ing your good news, the Pas­sive-Ag­gres­sive re­sponds with veiled crit­i­cism like, “You look great in these pic­tures! It must be the light­ing/

dress/pho­tog­ra­pher!”

THE DE­MOL­ISHER They try to make you feel bad about your suc­cesses, or make you feel as if you don’t de­serve them. “You got head­hunted? Don’t take the deal! How could you do that to your com­pany af­ter they’ve treated you so well?”
