How to Stop Being Jealous



How to Stop Being Jealous

Build your self-confidence. Jealousy is usually a result of insecurity and low self-esteem. Your jealousy may be the result of your fear of being abandoned or rejected by someone close to you. Or, you could be constantly striving for just one obsession or passion, so that when it doesn’t go your way, the unwanted outcome really shakes your confidence.

    • The best thing you should do is to build self esteem.
    • If you are a self confident person, being abandoned or ridiculed won’t break them..
    • Believe that you are good enough. Even if something have gone wrong, look at it as a chance to learn something new. That’s what confident people do best.
  1. Avoid comparing yourself to other people. Comparing yourself with others is one of the biggest sin you do to yourself. Everyone has their own flaws. Everyone has hidden struggles.
    • Instead of worrying about your shortcomings, think about the positive qualities, skills and character traits that you have. It all makes you unique.
  2. Do the opposite of what a jealous person would do. When you feel jealous about someone, don’t react in a destructive way by making accusations, or dropping little sarcastic hints. Instead, do what a trusting person would do in your place.
    • For example, if a friend is going to spend time with someone else, recommend a good movie or restaurant.
    • If someone you like and is possessive about is talking to someone else, join the conversation in a friendly way.
    • When someone else gets the job or the position that you want, be nice, congratulate the person and offer to help them be successful.
  3. Recognize the paranoia that is a part of jealousy. Jealousy causes you to react to a fantasy scenario that you create up in your mind. In reality, those bad things that you’re imagining may never happen at all. And if they do, be strong enough to get through them. Even if someone left you, believe that you have many other people you can count on in your life, and you’ll move on to become a better person.
    • For example, your boyfriend or girlfriend may call their ex to express condolences when something bad happens, like the person’s mother dies. Don’t be upset about it. Understand that the person is just being considerate and is not trying to start his or her old relationship with ex again.
