ABC Challenge #10 : J for Jealousy

She tried to be as good as her.

She tried to be as smart as her.

She was determined to find out what was special about her.

She tried to change herself to be just like her.

Just one step away from finding her secret,

she realized that she had lost herself in the maze.

Very often, we try so hard and focus on being like others, that we forget what God has gifted us with and ask for something that is far lesser than what we’re blessed with. Remember, each one of us is as unique as everyone else. There can be no one like us!

  1. I personally think there's nothing wrong with being jealous of people who you accept are better than you. I mean, why not? It can help a person become better and strive for something which they haven't before.

    It just needn't consume you. That's it.


  2. We can take some inspiration from others… Sometimes it comes in the form of jealousy. As long as jealousy leads to constructive actions, it's fine. But when people get into destructive actions, there is something very wrong with them. Most probably extremely jealous people end up wasting a lot of their own time.

  4. “Jalo nahin rees karo !” is the advice given by some wise men- maybe because jealousy is a very negative personality trait. At the same time, it is also true that blind imitation leads us nowhere. It i9s well said ” Kavva chala hans ki chal, apni bhi bhool gaya.”
    Nice post, Ashwini !


  5. Surprised to see a short one from you!
    The first word that comes to mind on hearing the letter 'J' is jealous. Short article, but strong and to the point.


  6. As long as it is not destroying our core, but just trying to make us a better person, it is fine. I agree with you. But as you said, once it starts consuming you, thats when the problem starts.


  7. Jealousy is human tendency and a distraction I think. More we try to live others life, more we move away from what we were supposed to be. I am sure many senior citizens will be repenting the way they lived others lives.. Nice one Ashwini 🙂
