7 Ways to Deal with Jealousy

6. Ask yourself if you’re looking at yourself through your own eyes or someone else’s.

If you grew up with critical parents or people who made you feel unimportant in general, you may have grown accustomed to seeing who you are through their own toxic lenses. Be aware that they only have as much power as you give them. Understand that their own reality isn’t the ultimate truth, and that you are more than the ways in which they’ve put you down. It may be hard to find that on your own, so find a good support system to lean on and people who do believe in your potential. They exist, I promise.

  1. Hi! Jealousy is a very psychologically interesting topic and there is a lot of evolutionary theory behind it, which makes it a great topic to talk about. Everything here was written and developed well. The suggestions of CBT and mindfulness were a great and very thoughtful addition. However, I noticed that in the introduction, you briefly mention detatchment, but you haven’t expanded on its role and its popularity (if popularity is what you meant by the statement, I wasn’t too sure). I think that there is room for you to explain this further and how this relates to jealousy. But otherwise, great job!

    1. Hi Rosie, thanks as always for your input! =) I took in your suggestion and expanded further upon detachment. And yes! CBT and mindfulness are amazing methods I often use when my mental health isn’t doing so well. Thanks so much for reading! I hope you have a great day! =)
