“I am Jealous to Myself”…Weird?!?
July 21, 2017 6:58am CST
“Is it possible to feel jealous to oneself?” It might sound weird. I am not losing my insanity at this point of time. I was thinking if a person can portray different roles in the movie, then he must be proud of himself or herself. My presumption is that celebrities might have the feeling of jealousy to their characters in the movie. "Why?" In reality, they don't have the same ideal situation. Thus, they are jealous to themselves for portraying such great roles in the movies. “Would you also feel jealous to yourself?” “Any experience like this?” Image Credit: pixabay.com

I think you may be right that an actor who plays a character he feels is much better than he happens to be may be jealous of that character. I have never been jealous of myself, but at times, a bit of jealousy felt about others who may be much better off in many areas than I am, but that kind of jealousy goes away quickly.

@Corbin5 I do think that it is normal to feel jealous of others capabilities or skills. But then, it doesn't make sense if we don't do anything about it. For me, I look up to them and tried to attain of what they had reached in their lives. If it didn't work out, I just convince myself that I had tried my best.

@shikharava At some point, there is a point that writers are well-known by people. It is through their brilliant ideas. But then, the readers the real persona of the writers. We might feel jealous because people loved the writing itself and not the writers personally.

I think I know what you mean---the way 'this real life' makes you have to constantly do monotonous things (wash, clean, eat, etc.), things that 'the characters an actor plays' never had to do. Makes people like William Shatner or Chris Pine wish they could be Captain Kirk and not have to deal with this 'mortal flesh.' Reminds me: a friend of mine got the blueprints for the Starship Enterprise ... there aren't any bathrooms (or maybe there are, in newer versions; but the SciFi StackExchange has mixed opinions on it.
