Never Be Jealous Again

Never Be Jealous Again

by Jane Powell

"Jealousy is an emotion we can live without."

When you are jealous of someone else,

your positive attitude suffers.

When tempted to compare yourself

to a someone who is more beautiful

or successful than most, you have a choice.

You can choose to admire her/his fine attributes

or let the green-eyed monster have its way.

If you choose jealousy, you will become negative,

learn to doubt yourself and cultivate

both fear and anger.

But, when you choose admiration, you nurture

an inner awe and wonder, which is too often

lost as children grow into adults.

Turn jealousy into admiration.

Stop comparing yourself

to those with wonderful qualities.

Replace negative feelings

with appreciation and admiration,

and appreciation of your own great qualities

will grow!
