Are you jealous of your classmates' success?

December 21, 2009 10:41pm CST
During the classmate gatherings,it is generally the successful classmates who invite,organize and entertain all the classmates.It is uncomfortable to see the former classmate who has established their career with a happy family,esp. those who were inferior to you before,but who have won their fame and fortunate,with attendants around,living in a villa,driving a sport car.It is more unease to praise them.The only thing you could do it to keep to yourself and sign the bad luck.Have you got this kind of experience?Please talk about your feeling with us.

I do sometimes get mildly jealous when I hear a classmate is doing particularly well in some area other than my own. It kind of makes me wonder "what if" I had gone down that route. However, this usually fades away fairly quickly because this usualy gives motivation to do better in the route im taking now.

Sometimes I'm also jealous to the achievements of my classmates. They deserved it because they work hard for it. It's motivates me also to work hard to make my life better like them. At the same time I'm happy for them because they are very successful in their chosen path.

Sometimes but I think I got more luck since the time I knew who the true God is, all the things that we had today can be gone like the ashes, its all temporary, you cant bring it in the after life, we came to this world naked and also we depart naked, now, felling of jealousy are normal to our life but you dont have to keep it in your heart, you have to waste it because you gain nothing about it, Jesus came into flesh to have our success and forgive our sin, our job is to worship, obey and follow God. God bless you.. have a great day...

am a jealous type of person but only when it comes to my husband.anyway i can never find myself being jealous of an old classmate success,they work hard enough to be where they are so who am i to be jealous, would probably more admire that person for being so successful.and work towards be successful instead of being jealous over their achievements,we all can be successful if we work towards it,so there's no need to be jealous of others or what they have.
