How To deal With… Jealousy
She’s got a better job, more money, a new fiancé and that green-eyed monster keeps rearing its head. It’s starting to really affect your friendship. J: Jealousy is a huge topic for women and no one wants to admit that. it’s all rooted in resentment. What you actually need to do is to be inspired by the other person instead of hating them. Both Persia and i have experienced that. now i try to focus on how i can use it to motivate me in my own life. P: We have a phrase we refer to in the book: ‘other people’s successes are not your failures.’ We also call this problem ‘compare and despair’. the key is gratitude. have gratitude for the things you actually do have – love, family, whatever those are.
