Jealousy and Envy :
Dealing with Jealousy :
Give it Time
Jealousy wonŽt vanish overnight, and it wonŽt vanish without working on it. Admit to yourself that you are jealous, and that this is a response which you can handle and work through. Another person canŽt "make" you jealous - you choose to react (consciously or subconsciously) to what goes on around you. Another person in your shoes might not be jealous at all!
Think about what in particular makes you upset, and why you choose to be jealous in reaction to it. How does the situation threaten you? What do you fear will happen as a result? Talk to the person about these things, and also write out your own feelings on it. YouŽll find that understanding the jealousy in the first place is the first step to helping work through it.
