J for green

April 30, 2008 § 1 Comment

Jealousy is funny word. We use it to describe possessiveness. We use to explain envious feelings. We get scared when our loved one start expressing it lot. We get scared when we feel it ourselves.
Its supposed to be one emotion yet it generates so many feelings around. It generates anger, helplessness, love, hate, and even nervousness.
As humans we like to be owners. Even when it comes to relationships – even non-existents. We always want to feel secure. No matter how people try to prove that to us, A simple gesture or sentence can brings out worst kind of insecurities. And we know it leaves us vulnerable. Yet, we cannot control it or maybe we just don’t try hard enough.
So, is it really ever okay to feel this way?
So, is it okay that I do feel happy for certain people but cannot really rejoice in it? Is it fine that I want to look like that? Is it okay to wish for my own Happy Ending than rejoicing in others? Is it fine that I hate the fact my life’s not taking directions that I want it to, but others is? Can I really wish for other’s share of luck?
Or Am I just being plain selfish?

    Jealousy is simply and clearly the fear that you do not have value. Jealousy scans for evidence to prove the point – that others will be preferred and rewarded more than you. There is only one alternative – self-value. If you cannot love yourself, you will not believe that you are loved. You will always think it’s a mistake or luck. Take your eyes off others and turn the scanner within. Find the seeds of your jealousy, clear the old voices and experiences. Put all the energy into building your personal and emotional security. Then you will be the one others envy, and you can remember the pain and reach out to them.
