Rise Above Petty Jealousy

WILL YOU LET petty jealousy, by narrow-minded gossiping people, rummage around in your mind when there are bigger things to think about and achieve with your brain?

Don’t let other people’s negativity get into your head. You can have accurate criticisms of people and things, but it’s not always wise to speak your mind and be disrespectful or unkind.

What’s bigger than petty jealousy?

> You minding your business.
> You working on living your best life.
> You helping others to be happy.
> You creating things that make the world and life better off and on.

Often we allow our inner critic to run us, and we live small, dulling our brilliant, deep colors, joining the selfish and insecure people who run on spite and unimportant little dramas they create.

You’re dealing with people who have low self-esteem — who envy and resent the way you live your life.

What does their jealousy do to them and their character?

With jealous people, it’s wise to remain positive, stand your ground,
be composed, brief, nurture compassion and be fabulous!

It will give you peace of mind and it’s kind to the other person.

Thanks — Michael
