Comparing your life to another’s life, even if it’s your own from a previous time, is a dangerous path. Actually it’s not a path. It’s a vortex that will suck you under and cause you to spin until you lose yourself. Comparing will always get you asking yourself the wrong questions. And the questions we ask ourselves will determine which direction we go.
The more you stop comparing, the less jealous you will feel. So the question isn’t “How do I get over feelings of jealousy?”. The question is how do I stop comparing my life to hers or others? When ever you feel yourself comparing, remind yourself that you’re on your own journey as she is on hers. Your time will come. You’ll meet whomever you’re supposed to meet when you’re suppose to meet him. Basically, you have to trust your story. And appreciate and be a fan of other people’s stories. For everyone who you think has it better than you, there are three that have it worse. Instead of allowing yourself to feel jealous, see if you can see the event of her falling for someone as inspirational. It just means people find each other. Remember, jealousy is poison. Inspiration is fuel. Then use the fuel to focus on your own goals / life.
So much truth to this…no matter what comparing your life to others can be so toxic to yourself
