Jealousy is something we all have felt, experience at some or the other time and will probably keep feeling till the time we attain nirvana. I know it is a negative word and one should refrain from it, but a human being without any of his vices is a dream.
‘The grass is greener on the other side‘ is an example of discontentment, and also jealousy. Is it so difficult for us to accept that the other side is greener because of attention, hard work and extreme care?
We feel jealous of people who’ve made it big in their lives and find ways to pull them down and dismiss their achievements with mindless arguments. Undermining their journey doesn’t add any glamour to ours. Why do we still do it?
It is true that life is unpredictable and more often than not people find themselves in unexpected and trying situations. Comparing our situations with others and letting go of the fact that it is a two-way thing, both are kinds of gravely foolish behaviour.
It would be amusing if we ever paid attention to the fact that two people could be jealous of each other. We always take for granted what we have and so does the other person. Wish we could have the courage to swap our choices to know what positivity surrounds us.
God doesn’t give us more than we can handle and less than what we deserve. He gives opportunities to all, albeit without any warning. Someone might have seen the road we failed to see, simple! Why feel jealous for it? As far as we are concerned, we’re on the right track. We only have to believe it!
