well, I wouldn't say that "we're ALL jealous", but however, the VAST majority DEFINITELY are, without a doubt, some HIGHLY jealous bastards.

+Jason Lewis Such profound, revolutionary, original, insightful, advice! I'm convinced you have the master key to life based on what you said! Also, it's not okay to be White. We're supposed to lay down and let other races walk all over us and passively accept being treated like second-class citizens in our own country! Like, duh! How else are the moronic, pseudo-intellectual, half-witted, self-righteous, pompous failed abortions of the lost generation supposed to use the benevolent power of hate mongering to make the world a better place?

Dear Anna, Finally catching up on your 9 newest videos, and love being reminded why I enjoy seeing what you can explain better than I, as well as the awesome person you are. 👍 This whole topic of "being happy for others" is exactly what I try to do in person & online. It's probably why I modified a saying to be my axiom: The best way to get ahead is to help someone else move forward. Really, what you're saying here is one of the best ways to #ShareGoodness. Thank you for still posting these videos despite your acting success elsewhere, I'm sure you're being blessed for these nuggets of light & truth you help others understand better. 💛 Sincerely your #UnknownFriend,

I'm looking for advice, (I'm 12 btw) and I have this friend. We're best friends, along with two other people. Before she (let's call her "J") moved to my school I was the "artsy" one and people praised me for it. Like someone normal, I felt happy, and back then I only had one best friend, and we would draw together. I would get compliments, but no one said anything about hers, I felt bad, so did everyone else. So, whenever I would draw, everyone would compliments hers, to be nice. And now I grew up, and everyone praises J, my teachers, classmates, friends, and I kinda feel sad. So I quit drawing. For months I guess I was jealous, or maybe I was clingy, but I get irritated easier at her than the rest of my friends. I ripped off my drawings because I hated myself, my existence and my life. It feels like people are rubbing it in, of course I know she is good at drawing but I feel like im lying to myself. Even my teacher, who isn't even our art teacher says "J is good at art, that's a talent that is born, it's not learnt" and it's like they are saying I'm not good. I can't get mad at people complimenting her but I always say "Yeah J is SO GOOD AT ART so pick her" and praise her when others do. I just can't help but feel jealous and I feel like I'm lying to myself. If you read this whole thing, thanks.

I was never actually understand how some people can turn jealousy into insecurites because all of my life when I see someone achieve something in their life I just either feel happy for them or not caring at all. I never had this jealous feeling of someone's succeed (well, lucky me). Until I had a partner (yes, now an ex) who had an incredible amount of insecurites lying in her body. She was not happy when I joined a competition, got a new friend, or when I got my scholarship. Stay away from this kind of behavior because this toxic behavior is slowly killing your growth, and potentially your partner's too

Don't be jealous of others to where you think less of yourself or want to be someone else. Work on yourself to not have that thought and only think of bettering and ways you can better others, no matter how significant

Ya, agreed with what you said. Then of course, when you start to pursue the path that others had used for their success, you might accidentally strived to be someone you aren’t or possibly trying to achieve something, ahem, impossible. I mean, if everyone can get to the same level, what then would you use to determine if a person is “successful” or not since everyone is having the same thing? I guess why I’m trying to say Is that, the day you can be genuinely happy for another person’s achievement, and whatever you do and don’t, is to me a success.

I don't feel jealous. It might be because I feel emotions other people display. I'm not even sure that it's healthy. Gives me one less motivation...

The reason I'm depressed is people r just generally mean to me and everyone else is so much more popular in school and everyone says they hate me and don't trust me and I'm trying to make new friends but it won't work also this mean girl her names Charle asked everybody if I'm the ”worst” and everybody said yes even the kind people I guess there is no kind people but the point is I almost cried and nonone was there for me😪😭😪

Being jealous means we're owned by someone else's success, luck, etc. I try to celebrate their accomplishment and absorb the good energy of that.

Meanwhile, each of Anna's cats is jealous of those cats who have nineteen humans worshipping it and attending to its every whim. They are probably off somewhere, sulking and making catty comments among themselves.

Didn't realize how much I needed this! I am not the kind of person who would others feel bad about their success when I am jealous, instead, I get very insecure about myself despite how happy I am for them. I really needed to hear this because I think using others success as an inspiration to keep going and work harder will really make a huge difference!
Cicura001 6 months ago
I feel like if you don't let jealousy affect you negatively, it's probably one of the best motivators you can have tbh. That you can aspire to be what you are jealous of and in turn make others jealous instead, haha.

This is a totally different point from a completely totally different direction. Just like jealousy we should admit that there are many negative qualities within us. Anger, hatred, disappointment, grieving, sadness, fears, insecurities, discontentment, delusion and even mental illness. Tons more to name. But I'm on a path to try and remove all those qualities to bring me into a better state of mind, everyday. So I'll never have to burn in envy ever again. Envious thoughts is easy to beat if you have contentment with the truly good qualities in yourself!
