They are quick to talk bad about you behind your back. They will tell you your hair doesn't look good when it's awesome. all of the above

Yes..Isn't it awful when people talk about your behind your back? I think that shows how very small they are. I think it's hard to say nice things about others when you are jealous..I think jealous people are so self-centered that they cant stand to see anyone else receive any praise.

I KNOW IT'S LONG BUT THIS IS FROM A PROFESSIONAL WHO GOES THRU IT EVERYDAY PLEASE READ IT YOU MAY FEEL A BIT BETTER I know loads of people that are really jealous. they take the mic out of the ones they are jealous of and put you down. they pretend to be your friends and then as soon as your back is turned they are talking about you and making you look bad. they also laugh at you and be mean and give you dirty looks for absolutely nothing. and the main thing that really bothers me is that sometimes they don't even know you and they just start to criticize you as if they've known you your whole life. first they'll stare at you, blaze you, laugh at you and talk bad about you and make you feel bad and want to cry then the next thing you'll find is that they have copied your style. basically they are jealous because they wish that they had everything that you have got but they haven't so instead they make you feel bad. you should ignore jealous people because they are no good they are bad apples and they want to hurt you - even KILL you! you should stay away from them and NEVER EVER TAKE ANYTHING FROM THEM ESPECIALLY FOOD OR DRINK they could do anything to it and POISON you and DO NOT give them anything that is yours because they don't deserve it after they've been so mean. GOOD LUCK AND PLEEEEESE DON'T LET THEM EVIL JEALOUS PEOPLE GET TO YOU THANX FOR READING XXXX

There are people who, when jealous end up doing evil things. They try to destroy the reputation of the people that they are jealous of by making up stories about them. They also go to the extent of hating the people they are jealous of without any specific reason except that they feel inferior and they just can't accept that. Of course people are aware that they are jealous except that they do not want to admit it.

I am 17 and I have a younger cousin that i've been living with forever and she's only 13 but she has the mind of a older person.She's a really jealous person and i had to deal with it for a very long time. She always wants what other ppl have especially what i have. I have never intentionally done anything to her in my life. This is getting really difficult for me already and i don't know what to do. She does and says things behind ppl's backs and shes two faced and fake. She's the reason why there's friction between my mom and her dad. She always exaggerate and twists truth. She's done some messed up things but this one thing is really getting to me. A few months ago, I've become pretty close to this one boy and i had become to like him. Since she knew who he was, i told her that i liked him but little did i know that telling her was going to be a mistake. A couple of months passed and me and this boy became closer and he even showed interest in me and i was just totally falling for him. She started making comments to me like "I don't know why he always keeps looking at me now" after that i didnt tell her anything anymore. Then one day she asked me "do you like him anymore cuz you don't act like it anymore..." i was like "yah why". Then soon after that i always see her staring at him and i found love poems about him. We even had a nickname for him and one day she comes home with a doll with the same name as the nickname we had for him. This is getting too much! I feel so suffocated and she always tries to ruin times when i'm alone with him. So what ever it is, whether it may be material things, success, and even a boy, she has to have it as long as i have it. Jealousy is something we all have but for something like this, where do you draw the line?

Hi littlefranciscan! I have been dealing with a very jealous person for the longest time. She is very kind on the surface, almost all people have so many good things to say about her. I too was fooled by that from the very beginning but as time passed by, everytime she sees something good happening to me or I have been enjoying a good life, she would say bad things about me and she even cursed me that she hopes that hardships befall me. I don't understand her because whatever she ask me to do something for her, I do it immediately so as to make her feel that she is important in our lives. But she wants more and wants her words to be the Law. Well, for now I am just trying very hard to co-exist with her and be kind to her as best as I can. Until when, I don't know because asa they say, I am just human. Take care and have a nice day. :)
