Got a green-eyed monster lurking within?
Amanda Richardson offers an inspirational antidote to envy in her upfront piece that gets stuck in to tackle bottom-line envy with a perspective-flipping invitation.
Jealousy and love don’t co-exist.
How might jealousy ever incline you to feel or behave towards another? Warm, open, loving, and supportive? Likely not.
Or, on the flip side, have you ever experienced someone jealous of you?
Jealousy is no fun, nor is being on the receiving end of it.
Jealousy is an ego trap, fed by comparison and competition, that can be painful, blinding, and destructive. It also always compounds feelings of unworthiness and scarcity.
Understanding what’s at its root helps bring greater compassion to others/yourself.
With jealousy there’s always a sense of deprivation going on (which can, of course, be rooted in childhood experiences).
Envy rearing its head is an opportunity for greater self-love, self-acceptance, and self-value. It’s also a flag to have a reflect on beliefs.
Is there a negative belief about yourself (e.g. “I’m not good enough”), or a scarcity belief you hold (e.g. “There’s not enough x/y/z”), possibly giving rise to jealousy?
Is there something you feel you will never be/do/have/get/deserve/experience/receive (or not easily) fanning an inner envy flame?
Do you lack loving and accepting yourself just as you are right now?
Do you fully own your value and worth?
Amanda takes you on a transformational journey, one you’ll feel a joy and expansion of by the end of the read regardless of where you are/aren’t at on any jealousy spectrum.
