The worst part of success is trying to find someone who is happy for you.
Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy in fact, they are almost incompatible; one emotion hardly leaves room for the other. Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die. Anger, resentment and jealousy doesn’t change the heart of others it only changes yours. Mrs. Monroe Isn’t it kind of silly to think that tearing someone else down builds you up? You can only be jealous of someone who has something you think you ought to have yourself. There will always be someone willing to hurt you, put you down, gossip about you, belittle your accomplishments and judge your soul. It is a fact that we all must face.

The last thing they want is for you to thrive in your habitat because they stand in their atmosphere where they beg and gasp for some air. Cruel people offer pity when they no longer feel threatened. However, kind people offer compassion and understanding regardless. It was lonely to be so perfect in all respects.
Jealousy isn’t a pleasant quality, but if it isn’t overdone and if it’s combined with modesty, apart from its inconvenience there’s even something touching about it. If you swim effortlessly in the deep oceans, ride the waves to and from the shore, if you can breathe under water and dine on the deep treasures of the seas; mark my words, those who dwell on the rocks carrying nets will try to reel you into their catch. The last thing they want is for you to thrive in your habitat because they stand in their atmosphere where they beg and gasp for some air. When emerging from humble beginnings, those around you tend to underestimate your authenticity because they knew you before you were ‘somebody’.The way you think about yourself determines your reality. You are not being hurt by the way people think about you. Many of those people are a reflection of how you think about yourself. Jealousy’s a weak emotion.
Jealousy is a dangerous emotion. Jealous people are usually so intensely dissatisfied with themselves that they have a burning desire to destroy anyone who has something they want, but feel they can’t have.

Some people hate people who are overconfident, only because their overconfidence reminds them of their underconfidence. Jealousy is perhaps the most involuntary of all strong emotions. It steals consciousness, it lies deeper than thought. It is always there, like a blackness in the eye, it discolors the world. Envy expresses itself through condemnation. The louder the condemnation the greater the envy. Jealousy is no more than feeling alone against smiling enemies. When people judge they completely lose sight of the blessings on their own table. Jealousy or conviction is a very dark room. Jealousy in any form will cloud thinking and form bad habits. Jealousy is an addiction. No matter how kind you are, always expect a few imbeciles.

Because it’s not really about you, but about them. Most people do not want much. All they want is to be envied by most people.
Jealousy is the art of burning yourself inside out.
