‘The Jealous Are Troublesome To Others, But Torment To Themselves.’ William Penn

When your world feels small and your life seems shitty, and you see the people around you…people you love or like a whole lot…living their lives, happy and maybe not perfect but pretty damn good

How do you cope with that twitch of jealousy in your heart?

The one you don’t want to experience

And the one that it pains you to admit to

How do you feel happy for them…

And still long for your own

Without that green-eyed monster taking up permanent residence in your heart?

-Asking for a friend 😳

  1. I think that recognising it’s there is the first part because otherwise you could end up acting bitter without even realising it. It’s natural to have the jealousy monster in the back of your head when things are shitty for you and going well for those around you because you deserve happiness and less of the crap you have to deal with. I don’t know about turning it off… but perhaps just admitting it to yourself, digging deep to remember that you are happy for your loved ones and friends and the world around you while trying to remember some of the things you’re grateful for too (easier said than done on the dark days, admittedly).x
