Jealousy has the power to ruin a friendship if it is not kept in check. Even the best of friends can get jealous of each other at times if they are both going after similar things in life.
You have to realize that you are two separate individuals who will each make his/her own way even if you have the same goals in mind. Allowing jealousy to seep too far into your mind and heart will only rob you of happiness.
Most times, when we feel jealous, self esteem is involved. A poor self esteem is the chief cause of jealousy. Check it.
Instead of getting jealous of your friend’s achievements, why not use it as an inspiration to having a better life?
From time to time, we need to step outside and cheer other people up. Even if you feel a pang of jealousy don’t allow it to linger for two long.
Have you ever had problems of jealousy in your friendship? How did you handle it?
