Jealousy Quotes About Being In The Grips Of The Monster
In my many years of counseling, I have helped many people in dealing with jealousy and all of stuff that goes with it. All of these quotes were composed by me, Dr. William DeFoore.
When you're really stuck and caught up in jealousy, you may be thinking or saying things like:
"I can't stop thinking about the two of them together."
"This is driving me crazy."
"I'm afraid I'm going to do something really bad."
"This is eating me up inside."
"I can't stand it any more."
"I can't believe they're doing this to me."
This might sound familiar, and if it does, then you're in the right place. It get's better from here.
Jealousy Quotes About What Jealousy Really Means
You're usually driven by jealousy unconsciously, meaning you're not really thinking about what you're doing or why you're doing it. That's not good--that's how you get yourself into trouble.
By reading through these jealousy quotes, you will become more conscious of what's really going on when you're jealous, and that will help you make better decisions.
Here are some quotes about what jealousy really means:
Runaway Freight Train Of Suspicion
"Jealousy is a feeling of anxiety and anger accompanied by thoughts of someone you love being with another person."
"When you are jealous, you are seeing yourself in a negative light, with low value and worth."
"Jealousy can be like a runaway freight train, going rapidly from doubt to suspicion to delusional thinking driven by fear and rage. If you don't wake up and check yourself, that train will go straight off a cliff."
"When you're jealous, you're only using a small part of your brain, and thus dishonoring your own intelligence. Jealousy is normal, but it's not smart."
"Jealousy comes from fear that you aren't worthy of love, that you won't get your fair share, and that someone else has the power to take what is yours."
"You can also be jealous of someone's success or happiness, thinking you can't have that for yourself."
You can see that there is a lot going on inside you when you're jealous. You need to know about that, so that you make good choices and don't get yourself in trouble.
This is why you're here, after all. You want to be free from the green-eyed monster, so it doesn't drive you crazy with suspicion, and create way too much anxiety and anger in your life.
Here are some positive jealousy quotes that point to the solution:
"When you're jealous, the best thing for you to think about is what a good person you are."
"To get free of jealousy, make up your mind that you're the best catch anybody could have, and that other person (the one you're jealous about) doesn't know what they're missing."
"Deal with jealousy by listing and focusing on all of your positive aspects, all of the good things about you."
"Free yourself from the jealousy monster by wishing the best for al of the other people involved."
"Set yourself free from jealousy by counting your blessings, all of the big and little things in your life that are good, right and working."
You can see from these quotes that your solution to feelings of jealousy is a combination of loving yourself and focusing on the positive.
You can do this. You're better than that jealousy you feel.
