Becoming so jealous of someone that envy begins to develop has everything to do with inward hatred.
There are many ways to deal with what’s at the root of envy but it’s different for each person. If a person is only jealous,
then they can do things to reassure themselves that What is meant to be for them will be and what they are meant to have they shall have.
Some people read books, others watch movies and inspirational videos, and still some may read articles and reach out to online forums.
But the goal is to change the way they think and believe that jealousy isn’t necessary, yet hard work for what they desire is.
Envy can develop if jealous isn’t dealt with at all or properly and that’s a much deeper issue.
Envy can set someone on a horrible path of self-sabotage. In cases like these, a person may want to seek out a counselor or a trusted accountability partner. Friends may work in some cases, but most often times friends will have a bias attitude and not give you the hard truth that one may need to hear. What ever the situation, no one should remain Jealous/Envious for long periods of time or constantly deal with it in most relationship that they develop.
Have you dealt with this in your life? How did you handle it?
