#90: You should be jealous
This jealousy is a sign
Is it not justified to desire a passive income, a strong body, a beautiful partner, or a gorgeous house? It doesn’t feel nice to face my jealousy but it’s a signal informing me that I am either missing something or erroneously thinking that I do. Either way, it’s a signal worth attending to.
If all I tell myself is: “Stop it! It’s a sin. You must be grateful for what you have”, I have just suppressed a reasonable voice that wonders why I cannot have it better. Why not? Moreover, suppression doesn’t dissolve my desire, it only makes me feel bad about feeling jealous on top of not having the thing.
This jealousy is a sign I haven’t found my truth, and I will continue to be distracted until I do. What I want to do is enter a conversation with my jealousy. I want to invite her to my table for us to ask:
What is it that I truly desire, for only that will grant me freedom from jealousy?
