We often speak of Jealousy and envy as the same emotion. Actually they are different ends of a spectrum. Jealousy occurs when we want to keep what we have. We become jealous when we are afraid of losing something in our life we value. Envy occurs when we want something we don’t have. Envy is based on the desire to possess something someone else has but we do not. These emotions are often referred to as shadow emotions, expressing the darker side of our humanity.
When we are feeling jealous or envious, it doesn’t feel good.
Jealousy is an emotion that can break you down, not just in your relationships, but also personally and professionally. Jealousy can be one of the most debilitating of emotions. This is what you already know of jealousy. It is not fun. It is not a happy place. It is however very destructive and it will destroy your life if you continue to allow it to control your thoughts and feelings.
Jealousy typically refers to the feelings, thoughts and behaviors that occur when a person believes that something about their life is not secure.
Self-acceptance and self-understanding are keys to control jealousy. Trying to control jealousy will take a strong determination to change and persistence to overcome the repetitive behaviors that play out each time you succumb to your jealous feelings.

Do you hear yourself justifying their success with some trivial reason so that you can easily dismiss them (and consequently feel good about yourself)? Through my experiences, I have come to learn that this instinctive emotion is merely trying to protect our ego, by burying our inadequacies and insecurities. Our mind is at work protecting us in the comforts of our little cocoon shell. But to what benefit does it serve?
Not only is the feeling of jealousy not conducive for relationship building and effective communication, but it just doesn’t us feel very good. Can you relate?”]

I hope to dispel the myth that jealousy is a sign of love. But if it’s not, then what really motivates jealous responses? Research has linked several traits to greater jealousy:
1. Low self-esteem. 2. Neuroticism: a general tendency to be moody, anxious, and emotionally unstable. 3.Feelings of insecurity and possessiveness. 4.Dependence on your partner: Even asking people to imagine that they don’t have good alternative partners leads to more negative reactions to hypothetical jealousy-inducing scenarios.”]

One day, we were sitting at the local café, talking about plans for the organization. Kayla had an idea for a major creative project she would drive and lead.
The idea was fabulous, and I didn’t like it. I didn’t like the idea of her doing this fabulous thing, though I couldn’t quite put my finger on why. Over our coffees, I shared this concern and that.
