There are some people who get jealous of others' good position. But not everyone feels that way. I think it's not a natural thing. I think a person who is jealous if other people's position is an insecured person. I believe that this person is not satisfied or content with his or her own position. If a person is contented or satisfied with what they have in life, I believe they would not feel any kind of jealousy over what others have that they don't have.

Yup!! Thats true people should be contend with what they have.But most people nowadays are money minded.They will do anything for money,because without money nothing is there in life.So i feel its common for most people to think that he/she should be come like Bill Gates or so.

hmmm...if you're a happy person, the natural reaction is you are proud and happy for the person... however, if the feeling is otherwise it could be jealousy cuz you dont like the person or cuz you feel bad because that good thing didn't happen to you. there could probably a little jealousy especially if you like the achievement, and it went to the person you either like or dislike. the worse feeling is, if you like something so badly then it went or was granted to the person closest to you who finds it less valuable than you do.

Guess that your close buddy is having a BMW or a Ferari, whether you will feel bad for not having such a costly car.Thats what make people jealous over the other one.

yes, it's a ferrari we are talking about, no doubt...jealous, jealous, jealous. hahaha. but being mature individuals, if it's something nice there are only two options...be happy for the person or make that as an inspiration for you to do achieve good things. jealousy is very distructive if not managed well. it's a bad emotion, rid of it. whether it's ferrari or million-dollar fortune. =)

Not everyone are like that. But few are like that only. They must have wished and worked hard to reach that position. When we reach that so soon, they will obviously feel jealous. No wonder in that. Hehe. Happy mylotting.
