Sis? What is Healthy jealously and how is healthy and jealousy in the same sentence? I think we have to understand a little jealousy is a little healthy in many different types of friendships like ones in the workplace or the ones at home.
Here are two scenarios try to identify unhealthy jealousy in a relationship and healthy relationships:
It’s a grand girl’s night out in Vegas. Everyone is dressed in their best waist are snatched and faces are beat to capacity. Teyonce’ has on four inch red bottoms and is tip-toeing accordingly. One of her friends in the group is recording her walking and is laughing with other friends in the group without her knowing. The gag is the friend doesn’t own a pair of red bottoms of her own.
It’s a grand girl’s night out in Vegas. Everyone is dressed in their best waist are snatched and faces are beat to capacity. Teyonce’ has on four inch read bottoms and is tip-toeing accordingly. One of her friends in the group comes alongside her grabs her and says, “girl I have to get me some of those you are working those shoes I have to get me some so we can tip toe together!”
Still don’t get it…
Friend calls you to let you know they have gotten a new job and tells you all the fun things they will be doing. You say friend I’m jealous you made me realize how much I’m unfulfilled at my job and you have inspired me to do better to get a promotion towards the job I really and I wish you nothing but success.
Friend calls you to let you know they have gotten a new job and tells you all the fun things they will be doing. You immediately get salty turn negative and don’t really wish them well. You even start to come up with ways you think they will fail.
I know we are all grown enough to know who our real friends are and probably won’t tell someone we are not that close with big news, but please be aware of who the roots are in your life and who are branches. It definitely levels to friendship and I’m sure you will be able to tell who is really rooting for you. It may seem odd that someone you consider a friend, family, or family is “jealous” of you. Please understand we are all on a journey towards self-awareness and the more self-confidence we have the less something the next person does will affect us. Please don’t take what I’m saying the wrong way. The point still is a little jealously can spark one’s self-race to become a better person in the end. We can all use a push. Ever heard the saying hang around a bunch of broke people and you will be broke too… Think about it
Let’s all uplift each other. We are all going through something. Take a moment to remember it’s not them it’s probably you…
