We all have our own trajectories in different points in life.

We all have our own trajectories in different points in life.

And now I could feel immense happiness and extremely proud for her achievement right from the core of my heart even while I'm writing this!

We all have our own trajectories in different points in life...

Our own unique stories of endurance to be shared so that our stories can inspire millions...

And lastly...

You don't have to chase behind a spotlight to shine because you are already shining from within.

MORE IDEAS FROM Why It Doesn’t Feel Good When Someone Else Succeeds

Let me share my experience:

My friend has secured 100% marks in her final year examination.

And I secured 97.5%

And I had this exact same awful thought that I did not get much spot light attention by my school but she did.

But when I remembered back our school days, I realised that she had always been a quiet and shy hardworking girl who did not get much attention by her teachers.

And this was her time, her chance to shine!

To take the stage and inspire her juniors by her journey!

When I realised this...It just reshifted my thoughts from a feeling of "envy" to a feeling of "compassion".

Your Envious Mind

You find yourself thinking:

  • They don’t deserve this.
  • They think they are superior to me.
  • They are superior to me.
  • I can’t stand being around them.
  • I hope they fail.

And then-

  • This reflects how inferior I am.
  • I keep falling behind.
  • People will look at me like I am a loser.
  • I could have done that.

Envy is a universal emotion that we’ve all experienced at some time or another. It isn’t easy to transform envy into learning. A problem occurs when it starts to take you over and predominates your emotional state.

Those who succumb to it and cause damage to others often end up losing their way in life and becoming a wanderer. This is the trap of envy. It hurts those who feel it. Sufferers have a basic problem: they look at themselves through another.  As a matter of fact, we can learn a lot from envy.

Envy is defined as resenting an advantage enjoyed by others, craving something that you don’t have but someone else does. It is a kind of admiration, an unspoken compliment.

Envy is often targeted at our peers, people in similar positions having more than we do, or enjoying life better than us. Example: A college classmate having a motorbike that you cannot afford, but would love to have.
