    Are you jealous of someone?  Why?  How is it affecting your life?

    How do you cope, or, not cope?  How damaging is it?  What do you think you can do about it?

    yes! I am jealous of my other sisters success, it affects me by pushing my self to do better.

    There are times where in I really really wish to be at least on their level of success but so far I am not even halfway to that goal.

    Sometimes when I talked to them I told them what I feel and they say that there are things that they envy about me too, they envy me because even if I am not as successful as they are there is a man who stay besides me when I am down. In their case no one is there if they are down, just paper works and deadlines. Sometimes it makes me feel ok but then again most of the time it still makes me want to be like them.

    I think we've all been jealous of someone at some point in our life, but comparing ourselves isn't fair to anyone.

    When I start to feel a little envious of someone, I always try to take a Biblical stance on my feelings. I know that God didn't create me or you to be like anyone else. We each come into this world with an individual plan and purpose for our lives, and I think once we can tap into that and figure out what that is, we grow into ourselves and can start to relieve some of that pressure.

    Also, may be the issue of low self-esteem and distorted image of one's worth. If we feel like we're falling short in some area in our life, we need to make the effort to improve in those areas so we can become more comfortable when in relation to others.

    I am somewhat. Usually when I'm jealous, I'm not angry about it. It's just like, "i wish I could be more like her/him". I might try to imitate the person so I can become more like the attribute that they have. I may have that person on my mind for a couple of days, and thus acting like them, but after a while I'll stop. Unless it's an extremely valuable trait, like being more honest or humble.
