LaNouvelleHeloiseJudging beautiful women

Sometimes, I catch myself making unfair assumptions about women who are conventionally beautiful. I saw this woman the other day at the grocery store – blonde, gorgeous healthy tan, beautiful skin, petite and slim, in fantastic shape, looking fabulous just wearing her shorts and tank top with her hair up. While admiring her, I also caught myself assuming that she must be obsessed with working out, really superficial and judgemental about other women’s bodies and style. When I accidentally knocked over a display – embarassing but no damage done – she was the first to ask whether I was OK or needed help. I realized that I often make really stupid and biased judgements about women that I envy, while assuming that THEY are the ones who are mean-spirited. It’s not true. I have known a lot of gorgeous girls who are good friends, helpful and who don’t care nearly as much about appearances as I do. It’s just something they are secure in, so they don’t think about it as much. It’s kind of like intelligence: I know I am smart. I have always been told I am and I have the education that built it up and the achievements to reinforce that knowledge. I don’t think about it often but never feel insecure about it, but I know some people think I judge them for not being as smart, when most of the time, I don’t. I’m too busy trying to work on areas that I feel less secure in, like my body, health and appearance. 8 months ago

That’s deep! Jealousy is a natural characteristic. Setting your goals and believing in yourself, hence, putting yourself first, is always a helpful way to balance your feelings with jealousy and building self-confidence. 9 months ago

JenRecent struggle

I have found myself recently struggling with jealousy issues.
I am currently in a long distance relationship and have recently found myself tied in knots about things I have come up with in my own mind.
My boyfriend loves me and I know that he would never cheat on me or anything to that extent but I am finding it difficult to control my wondering thoughts…
I am hoping that by making this a goal I can be more aware of it in my daily life and realize how silly it all is. 11 months ago

KimberI never thought I'd be the jealous type...

I’ve been in a relationship for over 2 years now, my jealousy has sky rocketed from no prob to everyone is a potential threat.

I don’t like it, It’s not who I am.

I trust my loved one, and by no means do I own him, he is and will always be free to do whatever his heart so desires.

I know I’m just afraid to lose him, and I also know that I never truly will no matter what, but…

It’s a feeling I can’t quite control. 11 months ago

LaNouvelleHeloiseGood and bad

Good: I wished a colleague the best for a year of teaching in France – that I really wanted!!! – and meant it. Since letting go of the gnawing feeling of envy, I have had much better interactions with her and feel more at peace with myself.

Bad: Almost didn’t meet a prospective student in our program because I was envious of her impressive CV. So embarassing to admit, but true. I did get over it though, and met her, and was welcoming, and the feeling went away. 13 months ago
