Do you feel jealous when you see your friend's pictures? They have a beautiful house, car, travel a lot and having a gorgeous look!! Honestly, I feel jealous sometimes but i take it positively. I'm challenged to work hard to be successful someday. I just get jealous those friends who have cars... It's my dream to have a car.

All those things are just things that are not important at all. Life is more important than anyhting that your friends may have. Be happy with what you do have and not the things you dont have.

good day to you tess_quinain, Being jealous is a normal reaction of every people. As long as you take it in a positive point of view. Just like on how you deal with it. And, as for me, I am also feeling that way. That, I was also feel jealous to some that has a car of their own. That, I am also dreaming to own a car one day. However, I am determined that God will grant it to me one day very soon. That, I must have the perseverance to pray for it. Nevertheless, I hope that you also achieve and possess your dream very soon. Have a nice day everyday.

tess jealousy is not good and why do you have to have just what someolne else has and how do you know that they are not in debt over their heads.'Grow up and make your own plans not someone else's why do all y o you people want everything at once? It takes hard work to get anywhere and unless your friends are wealthy they surely did not start out with all this stuff. Any way why do you think a gorgeous house and expensive car and all this other stuff is really going to make you happy? life and real happiness is not about things its about people and love and having fun and helping others. You sound very young and a little greedy. greed and jealousy are not wonderful emotions and they will not love you back or hug you or make you happy.As for a car anyone can buy a car once you make a little money.why does it all have to be dazzle dazzle stuff?

No I don't feel jealousy of those things that others have. Yes, I would like to have something like that, but not where I would ruin what they have by being jealous. I would say rather, that I am proud of what they have accomplished. It isn't easy for some to get where they are or the endurance of getting there. Some have success some try and just can't seem to get through to that point. Still we each have to be proud of where we have traveled and know we can hope.

I too am jealous sometimes but i really can't do anything as of now to at least be where they are right now. I know i will somehow reach my own dreams and soon they too will be jealous of me.

How old are you? Why is having fancy things so important to you? Fancy things don't make someone happy. You need to learn to be happy about yourself, that's your alive and well. Be thankful for your life. You need to get off the jealousy tip. That will kill you.

Cars are money drain. The moment it leaves the car lot, it depreciates by at least 30%. Still it is good to have a car for convenience.

I get jealous a lot. I see friends who have husbands or boyfriends that take them to the beach every year or to bigger vacation spots like Cancun or Hawaii. My husband will never do something like that. He used to be thoughtful but that went out the window a long time ago. I'd love to go to places like that. I hope that one day I can get myself there.

I feel the same. Most of my friends post pictures online of their vacations and trips, etc. And most of the time it makes me jealous because they can enjoy those comforts and luxuries just because they're born into a rich family. I do allow myself to feel jealous every once in a while but I don't let it consume me. After all, what can being jealous of my friends do? It won't give me the same comforts that they have. So I guess I should take your example and use that to challenge myself to work harder to earn more. :)

I think we all tend to envy other people when they have some things that we want. The difference there is how we handle it, just like how you react to it, you use it to motivate you positively so that you can eventually achieve your dreams.

dont let yourself down. You may never know that the car wasn't his. Or that house isn't fully paid yet. Time may come that good things will turn towards you. Just believe in yourself that you can do anything that no one else can do.
