6. Jealousy lies about the importance of your emotions.

We are all emotional creatures, but we can’t be ruled by emotions. Otherwise, we would never get anything accomplished.

7. Jealousy lies about your influence.

Jealousy likes to diminish our success in our own eyes. It makes us forget about the things we have achieved and the hurdles we have climbed.

But the truth is that there are people in your circle who are jealous of you. They wish they had your skill, position, accomplishments, or success. No matter who you are, you have some level of influence.

Instead of spending emotional energy being jealous, we can focus on helping others to achieve our level of success, whatever it may be.

It’s been said that the best medicine is prevention. When you understand how jealousy can be such a destructive force in your life, you can take measures to curb its influence.

Don’t play the comparison game. Your life is yours alone to live, and your only true competitor is your own potential.

What are some ways you have overcome jealousy in your life?
