Today’s insight journey led me to the idea that jealousy does not become us. Jealousy is a sign of insecurity and a lack of faith, and, if not dealt with promptly and properly, it can produce long-lasting, debilitating, and crippling effects.
It is pretty safe to say that we have all had moments when we have allowed jealousy to have an effect on us, whether for long periods of time or short ones. And it’s also probably safe to say that we did not enjoy the experience of being jealous in the least bit.
The good thing about realizing what jealousy is, what it can do to us and our lives, as well as how it makes us feel, though, is that we are in the position to make a knowledgeable decision whether or not to give into the coaxing of jealousy in the future, because we already know what it’s like to head down that path.
Knowing the truth about jealousy will not necessarily make it any easier to say “no” to jealousy, but it just may help us to do our best job of avoiding situations and circumstances that might yield to jealousy an open door into our lives. It all comes down to us and what we choose to do, and if we make well-informed and appropriate decisions, jealousy will have no choice but to look at us from afar and keep moving on down the road. #lovebythedrop
