Don’t be jealous. Be proud of your own achievements!

Hello, and good evening. With today’s post I wanted to talk a little bit about jealousy, envy and insecurities.

If I may be so bold to say, we humans have all, at one point in our lives, gotten jealous over someone. I admit that yes, even I, have gotten envious and jealous. After all, I’m only human. Right?

For example, in the past (and even now) whenever I tried my best to achieve something, it would always end up being average or below my expectations. And others would accomplish their goals without much trouble and effort whatsoever. Whenever I would think about it, I would become so frustrated! It felt so unfair. Many times I thought about giving up.

As a child, my parents always told me not to be jealous of others, because I did not know what they had to go through, to get what they have. I have to remind myself even now that everyone’s progress in their respective careers and journey through life, will be different.

So, next time you feel like cursing someone on their achievements, STOP. And congratulate them. They deserve whatever blessing that comes their way. One day yours will come, too. Furthermore, logically speaking, if that person was facing ruin, would you be jealous of them, too?

We must always remember that every person experiences jealousy and have their own insecurities. Some more than others. Those who seem to have it all, have more insecurities than anyone else can ever imagine. They are just better at hiding theirs than others.

Moreover, if I sit down and think about what all I have achieved until now, I can certainly say, I have come a long way. I should not be jealous of anyone because my achievements are no small feat either. Though, my achievements may be small, it does not make them any less amazing. Every small achievement will gradually lead to where you need to be.

Instead of being jealous and worrying about someone else’s quick achievements, believe that YOU are awesome and YOU will be AWESOME!

Anyway, my blog post has now come to an end and I would like to know  what you all think? Do you think what I say holds some truth or do you have something more to add? Please, let me know your thoughts in the comment section below. I would be happy to hear your thoughts.
