Envy

Envy; is a natural feeling to be better than another; How you handle this matters;

Years ago, I struggled with envy. It started as a wishful thought to be better than others. Seeing my peers achieve their goals triggered negative emotions that made me wish I also had it all; I struggled with fierce competition in my mind. I struggled for a long time till I found a secret.

Envy is a natural emotion. The natural wish to be another person and have their result.

How I overcame;

🗣️I recognized and acknowledged I was envious.

🗣️I understood my uniqueness: I am NOT the other person. I'm different, and I accept 'Me.'

🗣️The head that wears the crown has sacrifices beneath it, and it takes the sacrifices to replicate the same result: Just because I envy the result doesn't mean I can reproduce it.

🗣️I celebrate genuinely. This can be hard sometimes. Clapping for others till it's my turn can hurt my hands (figuratively), but I choose to celebrate until I become a celebration.

🗣️I weigh the mental health implication. The energy spent hating and throwing tantrums can be channeled to strategizing, loving, and caring for others.

PS: The choice of response to envy is what beats it! Take a turn and choose a different response.

Stay Jiggy and Sane.
