Jealousy is an incredibly powerful emotion that can destroy relationships with ourselves and our relationships with loved ones. The more focus on the desire for the things of others, the more we miss out on the good in our own lives.
It often reflects a deep sense of our own inadequacy, low self-esteem or a poor self-image. With some effort, one can change their behaviors to overcome jealousy.
Jealousy can weaken the love in our hearts. It can make us lose sight of all the good in our lives and the good in our relationships.
What will help us become free from jealousy? First, we must own it in ourselves. Its not a pretty emotion. We might rename it or classify it as something other than jealousy but remember love rejoices with the truth.
Focus on what you are grateful for. Focus on the good and it will be more difficult to see the bad.
Love is not jealous. What are you grateful for at this moment?
