“Jealousy is a terrible disease. Get well soon.”
It has 3 different definitions when it comes to jealousy:
1. Feeling of showing envy of someone or their achievements and advantages.
2. Feeling or showing suspicion of someone’s unfaithfulness in a relationship.
3. Fiercely protective or vigilant of one’s rights or possessions.
Have you figured out which category your jealousy stems from? Does bad intentions stem from your jealousy?
Let me tell you why jealousy is the most dangerous emotion on earth!
1. It is an incredibly powerful emotion that can make you a criminal.
You have to be extremely careful not to let that emotion overpower you when it comes to decision making. This is because jealousy is one of the most powerful emotion that can make us lose control when you are continuously fed with the same thought about losing something.
Jealousy can make you take decisions in life that you will regret for life long. They blind you with thoughts that are self-inflicted and make you look at the world through distorted lenses. It has a lot to do with self-esteem that you would want to uphold. Under the influence of such, many people actually follow the wrong path in order to get what they want, or take revenge in some cases. They make you do things that you didn’t think you were capable of – from arson to murder. How evil.
2. It will affect your health.
Healthy jealousy drives good competition. But sometimes, things get a little too over and you sink deeper into the competitive nature of everything. A jealous person is fearful of losing out to people. Hence, they would tend to be over suspicious on many things and inflict a fair share of tension and stress to themselves to ensure they surpass others. This would ultimately affect the health and thus give rise to many health problems such as heart attacks, headaches, migraine and many more.
Moreover, negative thoughts that are usually self-inflicted would develop you into an over sensitive person who is prone to depression and anxiety, making you mentally ill as well Hence, jealousy can wear you out both mentally and physically and that is why you should try to keep it under control.
3. It can destroy relationships.
Be it friendship or relationship, jealousy tends to occur.
Getting a perfect partner in a relationship is a big challenge. If you are lucky to have gotten one, things can turn out to be slight tricky with a tinge of jealousy somewhere in the relationship. Jealousy will inculcate a fear of losing your partner and it will then start affecting the trust you have built throughout the process and gives you a negative vibe to everything. It is the grave of affection.
Jealousy can also destroy friendship, when you get jealous about things that your friends are excelling better to you. This is especially when someone close to us gets what we want but not ourselves. You can feel bad about it, but never let it get over you as it could just ruin the friendship.
4. It can also affect your career.
Jealousy at workplace for other colleagues can affect your career in a bad way. While it gives you the drive to put in your best every single time, it can also lead to unethical acts like trying to outshine others using unscrupulous methods. Your competitive nature that is fed by jealousy would make people avoid you – for they are afraid that they would be your next victim, and you end up having no friends at work.
5. It leaves you alone.
If you are a jealous person, then chances are that you will be left all alone in the end because no one would be interested in your company as they do not want to be the victim of your next jealousy act. You will have no one to share your feelings of jealousy with anymore, as friends are sick of the hearing how you are going to take down that other friend who had done better than you in the finals.
Jealousy will take all the people who loves you, away from you, leaving you alone. Thus, it is a vicious emotion that can ruin your life unknowingly.
