A Conscious Experience: Jealousy

I consciously experienced Jealousy for the first time and to confront my feelings I was compelled to tell the person about it. I was having uneasy feelings toward her because of her testing achievements. This feeling first became apparent to me during class when I interpreted her disappointment of the grade she received.

Those were her own feelings she expressed, yet I too internalized them. After thinking about it, I could understand that my feelings of Jealousy were rooted to my own desire- even much basic than her own desire for excellence.

It was eye-opening to see how we all play some part in Jealousy. Knowing this has caused me to reflect on how I may have played a part in other's uneasy feelings toward me.

Now that I am aware of this interplay when I do come across Jealousy again I will ask myself, "what part do I play here?"
