How to deal with jealous people
October 1, 2016 10:06am CST
Sometimes it feels guilty to be good at something, because your so-called friends cannot take it well when you are appreciated for something. It gets really tough when they start isolating you because your not like them. Is there a way we can deal with people like this?

Rejoice in it....lol.....try talk to the one friend in the group who you can trust will understand you and be honest....express yourself to this one person...hopefully...the message will spread thought the group that it is not your intention to make them feel bad.

My personal experience with jealousy has been very bad...my cousin has depression and in her childhood she exhibited some serious mental health problems. They hid her issues and got her married, and after childbirth...the condition aggravated. Her mother did everything she could to put me down...as comparisons were inevitable and I was coming up in adversity whereas that girl had everything going for her and still she was in that shape. In office, jealousy is unavoidable. My way of tackling...call the bluff. If a person is feeling jealous of you, address it with the person, directly ask, hey, it looks like you are feeling jealous of me because I can do this better than you...finished. He or she cannot dare to feel jealous or do any harm to you because it would be incumbent on the person to behave to prevent that label sticking on them.
