Jealousy

Are you a jealous person or not? Typical is you have got what I can't afford syndrome.

Me? not having what I was striving for yet others had got, but now not any more which brings contentment.

unfortunately jealousy can bring out the worst in people in the way they react to others making their lives a misery.

So how do you rate yourself Jealous- content-envious which is a bit different to being jealous.

Re: Jealousy

No - I am not a jealous person - learned, at a very early age, it is a pointless emotion.

Sounds like envy. Jealousy is a far more complex emotion.

Re: Jealousy

Its easy to be jealous of someone who appears to have had an easier ride than you, but, if you realise you were complicit in the ride you took, then, jealousy is not a consideration.

I'm more Billy Fury than Frankie Laine but I remember.

I'm never jealous of possessions or wealth (although a little more wealth wouldn't go amiss ) but I can wish I'd sailed through life like some people seem to have done. Perhaps a bit jealous of that sometimes.

As Spitfire reckons about people though, a lot of trouble has been of my own making.

Re: Jealousy

I can't stand boasters. Boasters try to make others jealous and I suppose it works on some people but most of us just think it is really childish. No matter what people have or own, there is always someone with more, it's just that they don't boast about it. So the answer is no, I don't get jealous of anyone.

Re: Jealousy

I do remember being very jealous of Debbie Harry's boyfriend of the time (Chris Stein) but that was forty years ago.
