A majority of what we feel is based in one of two primal emotions – love and fear. Jealousy is an emotion triggered by fear.
When you see someone who breezes through life, it triggers a feeling of lack because we feel inadequate for not having the same privileges.
The trouble when you see someone being more successful than you is that your perception is one-dimensional. You might see someone’s beautiful spouse but not be aware of the emotional challenges their relationship is exposed to. Or, you might envy someone’s financial excess but fail to see their struggles with their health or close relationships.
And to top it off, it is difficult to own up to feelings of jealousy because everyone makes it out to be such a bad thing.
It All Starts With A Little Envy
When you start comparing yourself with others, there’s a high likelihood of feelings of insecurity creeping in. You start to envy what others have and what you don’t.
While envy is more related to possessions, feelings of jealousy are connected to relationships.
Jealousy Is Not All Bad
Experiencing a bit of the emotion because something is happening to you is one thing. But being delusional about it and going on a witch hunt is purely paranoid behavior.
Believing that other people pose a threat to you is not a good way to build and maintain healthy relationships. This primal insecurity stops when you identify areas where you feel the lack in your life.
