I havent thought of this before. I am happy with my life and what I have. Yes, i have goals and eventually changing things. But i couldn't imagine being jealpus and my life revolving around it. I just received a message froma friend on Facebook. We haven't associate for several years but we live close by (down the road). I honestly have no issues. If she asked for something I'd have no issues helping or vice versa. I won several contests this week. Some i give to friends or sell etc. She messaged me with her snarly comment. I believe because she's unhappy with her life and jealous. I didn't see this until a close friend said this. She had some comment about a sippy cup i won, dog food i won, and a garden ornament i won. Claiming i wont use them and why would i enter. Who cares??. I just said many items i can give to friends or sell. She carried on how she has kids and she never pays full price (no idea how this has to do with me enterig contests and winning). I ignored the message because i'm not justiying to someone who thinks they are right and need some sappy story. I ended up blocking her because of her outbursts. Sorry, but only you have control in your life and being unhappy is up to you noone else. I pity her because its clear she is unhappy and jealous by her message. But me being happy and enjoying myself has nothing to do with her.

Jealousy is a destructive emotion which ruins relationships. When I was younger I was quite a jealous person but as I've aged I don't suffer from it.

Jealousy is not something that is good or healthy. It is better to let it go than to let it ruin your life.

@ricki_911 I don't think I could either. It would be so hard to just appreciate the little things in our lives.

Jealousy is when you count someone else's blessings instead of your own.

Jealousy/envy is a toxic emotion. It means people can't accept themselves or the life they've created. Somehow they feel as if the world owes them something. Good thing you blocked her. Don't allow anyone to destroy your peace. :-)

Nope! She is not destroying my happiness. Its ssd she acts this way. But i feel she is jealous by her remarks and snarly comments. She never has anything positive to say.

It is only human that we feel jealousy and/or envy. The only time it will be wrong is when we act upon those emotions and get people hurt in the process. These emotions can either help us to challenge ourselves to do better or cause hate. The choice is ours to make.

Tell her to pray to GOD. Jealousy can destroy lives But PRAYER can change the life of a person.
