Envy and jealousy are inevitable but we can manage that green monsters inside us, we could learn how to tame that monsters.
We envy those that are more successful than us (eg. career, family, etc) because we lack of those. It could be positive or negative, depending on how we use “envy“. It is your choice to use it as a motivator to achieve your goals or you let it destruct you into negative emotions.
Jealousy is a threat. A threat not only to you but to the involving parties as well. We feel jealous because we are afraid of losing someone or something important to us, naturally it makes us wanting to protect or to avoid it from happening. If one does not know how to handle a situation well, it could cause pain and anger, resulting to jeopardizing the situation further.
If you feel jealous, give yourself a moment to calm and think. Analyze the situation. Do not feel afraid to talk to your partner about it, let him or her know in a proper manner. Be the master to the monsters inside you.
