Do you get jealous sometimes with your sister's or brother's success in career? For me I do not ever. Because my sister is a generous one she shares with us her blessings . I love my sister dearly for not being selfish. Ofcourse what blessings I have now I share with her too.

Well.. to be honest, as a human, I would get jealous of someone who is more successful than me. I don't think jealousy as something bad for someone to have, besides I think it is normal to feel jealous or insecure of someone that we realize that we don't have on us. But then, related to the sibling rivalry... Apart of my jealousy, I also feel happy and proud of her become more successful than me. If they could reach the best they could have got, why should I feel not happy about that. I would be more motivated to get more than what I got now, but it doesn't mean that I would hate them because they more than what I have. In my family we were taught not to make jealousy between siblings as something that would set us apart, but make us together and improve us to be better.

No never I think all of us have acheived what we have done through hard work and I would never be jealous of that.
