Jealousy Signals a Lack of Self Worth
We only usually covet what someone else has when we don’t feel worthy or capable of receiving it ourselves. People who feel confident in their ability to live their dreams and manifest their desires rarely feel jealous of others, regardless of how successful or happy another is.
