Yes, There’s a Way to Make Jealousy Work for You—Here’s How
Your friend got engaged while you’re still waiting for your boyfriend of three years to propose. Your co-worker got the assignment you wanted. Before you feel guilty about feeling jealous, find out how to make it for you.
Envision what’s making you jealous
Mike Goldstein of EZ Dating Coach and producer of the free video How to Text Men During The Day: What To Do and What Not To Do suggests that you spend five minutes every day imagining yourself with what you’re jealous of. Take the amazing house your friends just bought or the high-level job you wish you’d gotten. Every morning, picture yourself in that home or in that corner office. In your mind, walk yourself through the rooms or meetings, imagining what you’d see there. Do this daily. “All the while, come up with a plan on how you’ll accomplish buying this house. If you ever need added motivation, go to that house in your mind. Never stop until you accomplish your goal of buying the house.”
