I sometimes feel a bit jealous when i see my friends at the peak of their careers. they almost have everything a person could ever want. nice car, nice house, happy marriage, happy family, traveled already to lots of countries and financially stable. Sometimes jealousy that i feel for them is the one which makes me do best with what i am doing. so that when time comes, i will no longer feel jealous for them.

Hi, JEalousy sure ever happen in everyone 's life. But there is no point always go for comparison. Different people will go through different kind of life and we can't always make a comparison of our own life with other people's life. I am quite happy with my life now,Have a lovely husband and lovely son at my side. And I also have a lovely family who is always there for me. Nothing much to expect. Don't put over expectation on your life,or else, you will feel suffering. Just treasure what you have now and work hard to have a better life.

It's natural, as human we feel jealous to others achievement. I sometimes feel jealous to my friends who get rich quick easily. I mean they just work little but could earn more income instead of me. Some people could get their job better than me even though they are not so smart. In other hand, I salute to others who work hard and reach great achievement. However, I won't be jealous anymore when I thought that everyone have their own destiny and I believe my destiny.

If I say never... it must be a lie. Sometimes. I'm not a jealous person. Sometimes I have this feeling, but my nous will come out soon to tell me it's useless, what I can do is to struggle for my own life, to learn his/her successful experience but not only to envy.
