Feeling Inferior and Jealous!



Many always keep on comparing themselves to others who are doing well and feel so feel themselves discouraged.
These thoughts can become obsessive and of course this gets in the way of positive personal development. What is the nature of jealousy and how do we eliminate it? ” Ok, so first of all: Jealousy of others (Envy) is a very common personal issue and a lot of people are struggling with it.
Why Do one Compare to Others? - It is the fear of inferiority. Feeling inferior or inadequate is really hard to tolerate, so we do anything to check if there is a slight chance of being inadequate.  This is more likely to be the inability to accept that someone else is better. If you are comparing this would mean the other person is superior to you, and therefore you are inferior.
But all this is inner confusion. - What does that mean? It means that you realize on a deep level that you can’t possibly be inferior. You Are Enough: “At the core, we are all equal. Nobody is more worthy than somebody else. This is the truth.” You are a unique human individual and have the same essential rights as everybody else. You just need to recognize this truth inside of yourself and trust yourself on it.
If you really have habit of comparing yourself all the time, Change both your physical and mental state.

Instead of saying this is who I am and then feeling bad about it, think about where you want to be and start to grow into this direction. Jealousy only happens if you buy into the idea that you can’t change anything. So get inspired and go.
 
You can also just enjoy that someone else is doing great too. A mature human being is able to acknowledge the successes of others and even enjoy them.
