..you can go from feeling good, solid, grounded, successful, PROUD…
to feeling angry, sad, frustrated, and stuck.
Questioning every decision.
Hating hating other people, and resenting resenting their success.
“Sometimes this human stuff is slimy and pathetic – jealousy especially so – but better to feel it and talk about it and walk through it than to spend a lifetime being silently poisoned.”
― Anne Lamott
“Jealousy always has been my cross, the weakness and woundedness in me that has most often caused me to feel ugly and unlovable, like the Bad Seed. I’ve had many years of recovery and therapy, years filled with intimate and devoted friendships, yet I still struggle. I know that when someone gets a big slice of pie, it doesn’t mean there’s less for me. In fact, I know that there isn’t even a pie, that there’s plenty to go around, enough food and love and air.
But I don’t believe it for a second.
“Jealousy is the most dreadfully involuntary of all sins.”
― Iris Murdoch
