    Default Jealous of others??

    Does anyone consider being jealous of others as one of their worst traits?
    I find myself often getting jealous of others over the most petty things and would like to stop this!!
    I even felt jealousy when my friend told me about her extremely beautiful birth experience when I was induced and had a traumatic birth. Does anyone else ever feel like this?

    I dont like being Jealous but I deffenetly dont find it the worst trait to have lol

    I kinda see it as a way to help better oneself if you wish. "Oh Im so jealous she won first place in a race" So go and train harder. That sort of thing.

    I think that if you didnt get slightly jealous in relationships, are you really that into the person in the first place? lol

    I do get jealous when it comes to birth stories!!

    I don't get jealous about possession or anything like that usually thing I feel like I was ripp off with like:
    Traumatic labour, ending up with me being bed ridden for months while having a sick baby in and out of hospital.
    Then I hear about xx having a 2 hour drug free birth, Leaving that day with a lovely baby that sleeps more then 30 minutes at a time. That's when the green eyed monster comes out

    I don't feel jealous, that would imply resentment but I do often feel envious of other women and their lives but it's all in the perception

    Rarely, because things aren't always as they seem.

    There was a good thread on here the other day, I only glanced at it but the op was saying that ppl are jealous of her clean house but really she has OCD (I think it was) and could never relax or something along those lines.

    And I never get jealous of anyone online because who knows what's true, with so many trolls around and all

    I get jealous of people who have a lot of friends because I struggle sometimes to make friends and those that have a close extended family as our family struggles to be close. Anything else, not really.

    I had an awful birth but I don't feel jealous when friends have a good birth. The last thing I want to hear is others suffering like I did.

    Jealous of people who conceive just like that ... and who assume that everyone can do it "the normal way".
