I have felt jealousy before when I have been in a tough situation and have seen others get things easy. I felt some pitty. But, then I realized that wouldn’t help so I made the best of what I had and everything worked out.
Same it makes me jealous when people get out of things easy.
Me too bud
Everyone is jealous at one point. I probably am jealous everyday. I can’t think of a specific time.
Happens to the best of us.🤷🏻♂️
Your jealous of me duh.
I have experienced jealousy when my friends’ friends ask, right in front of me, to make plans with my friends. It’s like I don’t exist and my feelings don’t always matter. I ignore it, but I also sometimes try to plan things with my friends too so that I don’t feel helpless.
That would suck. I suggest saying something.
I understand that. Dito
I’m sorry if I’ve ever done that to you.
i can see how that would cause jealousy
That’s not fun.
Sometimes I feel jealousy when I see like Tyler with his iPhone 11 or somebody with AirPods. Or a nicer dirt bike. But then I tell myself that having those things wouldn’t make me happy, and that I don’t want to spend the money for them. I can spend it on important stuff like college. So I am content with what I have because I know that I actually have a lot and we should be grateful, because people have a lot worse circumstances and we’re blessed. I realize that my dirt bike fits all my needs, and my iPhone 6 works just as well as an 11. Having that temptation would just make me spend too much time looking at a screen anyhow.
That’s a good perspective.
That’s a good way to deal with it
Ya it is interesting that we want these things so much but they don’t really make us happy
A time I experienced jealousy is when I was in middle school and we were in band and one kid started playing a super popular song on the piano. It made me feel like he was super cool and I wasn’t anything compared to him, which made me want to learn to play the piano so I could be like him. I actually went home and started looking up your tube videos of popular songs and how to play them on the piano.
Yah I feel that to
That’s actually really cool. You actually acted on it and tried to make yourself better. That’s really admirable.
I felt jealousy a lot when I was younger especially about my looks and friends but as I got older I soon felt less and less and I’ve learned to accept problems with little to no response. I typically respond calmly and just move on to the next thing in life. I don’t feel that I hate the time to be jealous.
Feeing jealous sort of puts you in a bad mood, so I am jealous as little as possible.
Have* not hate
My brother got way more presents than me and I had to except that he’s the favorite.
I feel that on a personal level.
I get jealous quite a bit, whither it be from sports or missed opportunity. I usually try to keep it to myself and try harder to grain the opportunity.
I know Ady it’s okay
I also keep it to myself, and then I let it build up all day until I get home and cry it out.
I have experienced jealousy many times before. Like when I thought someone looked really nice or when I see a couple. I also can get jealous when I think someone is really good at something that I’m not good at. It makes me feel bad and self centered. I normally respond by trying not to think about it.
That is a good way to deal with jealousy
That’s a really mature thing to do.
I’ve felt jealousy when someone gets a higher test grade than me. It made me feel kind of guilty that I was feeling jealous. I accepted my defeat.
Yeah but you still get a lot better than me
You’re doing great sweetie.
Hey but you are better than me haha
I am short. I wish I was taller.
Height is definitely something you could be jealous of.
Once when I was little I went to a friends house and he had a remote controlled car and that made me jealous because I wanted it. It made me feel bad for wanting my friend’s car but I also thought it would be cool to have a car like that. I didn’t do anything about it except I maby asked my parents to get me one.
Happens to all of us at some point.
I try not to be super jealous
A time I feel jealousy is when friends are left out. It makes me feel like I have no one on my side. I just forgot about it because it’s not important.
Yeah that sucks.
There has been a few times that I have experienced jealousy. It made me feel anger because I was jealous and I don’t like jealousy. I responded by reassuring myself that I didn’t need to be jealous.
This is really true.
One time that I was jealous was when I was a kid my sister had gotten a DS for Christmas and I got super jealous because I wanted on and I think I even put it on my list. I got really mad and didn’t want to talk to her but then after a while I didn’t care so much.
That is a good reason to be jealous
I got jealous one time in when someone got a better score than me on a test. I had studied really hard so that I would get a good grade. And even though I did get a good grade, they got a better one and recognition for it. I was kind of upset
Same, BETH. 😒😂
Yeah it’s hard when you put in all that work. A lot of the time jealousy comes from people who don’t work hard, but than are jealous of peoples achievements who did work hard. That’s not cool, because you might be able to be like them if you worked as hard. But yeah
I get jealous when I work really hard for something and then someone else obtains what I worked hard for without any effort. I also get jealous when I’m left out of things and I feel like I could be easily replaced and not needed.
Dang. Deep thoughts
I understand that, but you should be proud of your hard work. It’s not worth anything if you got it for free.
I feel that.
I usually respond with jealousy not in a very good way. Whenever I feel any bad feeling it leads to other thoughts of insecurities constantly reminding me of everything that I’m not good enough at. I keep it to myself and I dwell on it letting it crush me until I fall asleep that night. Then the next morning I feel better.
I don’t experience jealousy very often because that’s just not a very dominant characteristic of mine. But, I have felt jealous of my older brother Dillon. He is athletic, smart, and a big role model of mine, and I have been jealous before of how well he excels. I respond to my jealousy by turning it into a goal, and I begin to strive to be what I was jealous of.
I think that older siblings are a very big source of jealousy. I definitely feel the same way with my older brother
That’s a super good way to deal with jealousy, and you get to work on yourself too.
Jealousy makes me feel like i won’t be cool if I don’t have that thing, that things I have are no longer cool. But you just need to get think that you have good things and that your life is good in different ways
Sometimes I feel jealous when I know someone who hasn’t gone through the same experiences as me. Divorce for example. They won’t ever know what it feels like to have two separate families. Whenever I feel jealous of someone, I try to remember that they have their own problems, and look at what I really have. It’s not good to compare yourself to others. The only person you should compare yourself to is your past self, and to see how much you have grown. Also I get really jealous when I see places with snow when we don’t have any.
“You should only compare yourself to your past self” I like that.
I’ve always been mildly jealous of my older brother. He always had more friends then I did and he was always a lot smarter then me. He was much more charismatic and he always had more spirituality then me and I hold spirituality to be very important. For a very long time he was just me but better in every way. When he left to Peru I finally realized that I was trying to be a better him instead of a better me but going back to the prompt it made me feel pretty bad. I was always trying to compare myself with him and I was never god enough
Oops good enough
More friends than you? That’s a lot of friends. But yeah I’m glad you are being a better you and not a better him.👍
Sometimes I feel jealous when I start something with someone and they continue it with someone else. Like that was my idea and now it being used with someone else.
(Oops I didn’t finish) thing so Ike this do make me a little bitter. I have to stop and think that it’s ok, I’m glad they’re spreading my brilliance.
I can’t think of a specific time, I was really jealous but I’m sure that jealousy happens to me all the time. Whenever I am jealous I try not to voice it.
Sometimes I get jealous when my friends make plans without me cause I like being included. I really like being a part of the group and it makes me mad when someone doesn’t wanna invite me to do stuff and then I end up feeling out of place.
A time I experienced jealousy is when I was little and my brothers could stay up late and I couldn’t and it was sad and I am also jealous of my past and how nice it was to be able sleep a lot.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
