Does jealousy ever go away? Will it ever stop playing a part in my unhappiness?

Old habits die hard, don’t they? I used to be jealous.Jealous to the point of refusing to listen to an artist who was my age, beautiful, and more talented and successful than I could ever hope to be.

 

But that faded away. I’m creating my own success, becoming apart of wonderful things, working on a novel.
So why isn’t that enough anymore?
Because of…her.
An Italian princess who lives in a California palace, works at Interscope Records, and goes to an oceanside school in Malibu.
Everyone loves her and she has all the money she could ever need. She doesn’t even need to work.
I don’t know why I’m so jealous.
But I know I can’t let it trip me up.
I think when we’re unhappy, we find ourselves comparing ourselves and our lives to others and it sucks so much, doesn’t it?
We don’t have to do it, but we do. We do it without even realizing it.
You have to stop and look at your own life…count your blessings. Realize all the good things you have and be grateful for them.
Easier said than done, right?
Well, it’s possible. Anything is possible.
You can do anything. A n y t h i n g.
There is nothing you can’t accomplish.
The only thing stopping you is you.

I don’t want to be jealous. I want to be happy, and I’m working on it.
Writing for a music website, being apart of OOE and Band Aid Records, and working on my novel and are wonderful things.
I’m extremely grateful to join communities of beautiful, talented and down to earth people.
But those little bits of ‘Sigh…why can’t my life be like hers…’ still linger.
I know, that the more I focus and the more I try, the feelings will go away.
I know that I will know complete and total happiness someday, it’s just going to take a lot of time.
So, if you’re feeling this way, too…Don’t worry. It’s normal. People think having these issues are terrible…but we’ve all got them,

some worse than others.

We can fix them, too, if we try hard enough.
Have faith. x
