Jealousy...totally different from envy. Jealousy is more of a negative, regressive state of mind. You know, that thought of wanting something someone else has, and thus until you have it, they won't have it either. Envy is more of a moving forward; motivating, progressive thinking.
It's funny, some of us are lucky to have that gene. You know the one...
It permits you to be genuinely happy for your friend's success. It allows you to be happy that your significant other has friends of the opposite sex. The one that shows how proud you are of a co-worker's promotion, even though you are still at entry level.
Some people can be genuinely happy for others' triumphs and never be affected. Some aren't as blessed.
I want to know...are you a jealous person? How do you cope when you feel that jealousy feeling coming through?
