I have a serious question for you. What have you ever gained by being jealous of something or someone? Nothing but a bad attitude which often leads to being ungrateful for what you do have in your life. It’s like a sickness that spreads and moves through your life…but the great thing is you don’t have to let it! Don’t let it infect you, be happy where you are and with what you have here and now. Jealousy has never benefited anyones journey through this life, it really only hinders it and holds you back from the joys in your life. Making good goals and working hard to accomplish them, that should be your focus, not thinking about other people and what they have or what they are doing with their lives..
People’s Lives Are Not As Easy As They Seem
What we often don’t think about when we compare our lives to someone else’s is what they did to get to where they are, or how hard they worked to get what they have. With social media today we just see a perfect picture of what others have and we often start to immediately compare what we have to what they have. Instead of making a comparison and getting jealous of what others have, be proud of them for what they have accomplished in their lives and recognize that they have been through things you know nothing about to get there. If you need to you can use that as fuel to help motivate yourself, after all if they can do it then so can you!
Jealousy Is An Endless Black Hole Filled With Depression
Jealousy and comparing your life to others is like a big black hole, it never ends because there is always someone with something more than you or that has something that you are not able to obtain or achieve…for now. If you work hard and set goals for yourself, there is precious little that we cannot achieve in this life and your potential is essentially limitless.
You Need Goals In Life That Are Meaningful
I am hopeful that your goals are not to just obtain wealth or stuff because those are empty goals without any substance to them and those things all just rot away and disappear over time anyways. Don’t get me wrong, money and nice stuff sure are nice but if that’s all you have then I promise you that you will not be fulfilled as a person, and you will not be as happy as you could be. So set your mind and your goals on things that are important, things that matter and that fulfill you. Everything that you need will naturally flow out of accomplishing your goals with the bonus of you feeling fulfilled because you are heading towards goals that are worthwhile and fulfilling and not just chasing meaningless things.
It’s Your Decision What You Want To Pursue
Only you can decide what is fulfilling and worthwhile to pursue, but when you find those goals that will fulfill you then there is probably not much that will stand in your way to achieve them. So don’t focus on other people and their journey or what they have but focus instead on where you can go and how you can make a difference in this world and accomplish fulfilling goals that actually mean something. Turn away from the black hole of jealousy and know that you have purpose in your life no matter your age, social status, bank account or type of car you drive. Just being you means you are important and worthwhile…choose to do something with your potential and get out there!
