That was a trick question. There are no positive and negative emotions. There are positive and negative outcomes and the emotion of jealousy is generally attached to non-helpful human behaviors.
Do you feel jealousy in your romantic relationships?
Esther Perel, an author and therapist described jealousy as an ‘erotic breath.’
We are often made to feel guilty for feeling jealous. So we tell ourselves not to feel a certain way. Jealousy is a sign of weakness, being upset is a sign of weakness. But when you brush it off as not so important, it dilutes the effect of a healthy conversation.
It is a necessary and meaningful emotion that has been branded as negative by a generation of independent thinkers. But where does jealousy originate?
Is Jealousy A Sign Of Insecurity?
It is difficult to say with certainty that jealous people are insecure people. Although these labels roll off our tongues with ease, there is a sense of incompleteness in that statement. We are all insecure about something. So we should all be jealous people.
Some people learn to control these jealous emotions. But it also makes them appear cold and unattached. You cannot play with fire and expect to not be burnt, after all.
Some people prefer to get up close and experience the emotion of jealousy in its fullness. You cannot fix something unless you are comfortable getting close to the broken link.
Often, what you find is a sense of incompleteness in your own life that is causing you to be jealous of other people.
Want to stop feeling jealous? Start by looking inward – what is missing from your own life that could make it better?
When you are living an abundant life, you might still experience jealousy. But the outcome of that emotion will be a positive breath of fresh air from your life.
