How can I get over being jealous/envious/upset by someone else getting a promotion instead of me?


So a former employee of mine is going to get a promotion that will put their title above mine. I have many more years invested, have worked hard, etc. But this person is getting ahead partially because of their brief military service, which naturally gives them preference even if they may not be the best candidate. The person acts a bit spoiled and entitled. So naturally I feel this person is undeserving of a promotion. I haven't been promoted in awhile and get myself upset at the thought of this person getting a better position than me. How can I let this go?
