Ever noticed on your Facebook wall, there will be people posting quotes that go something along the lines of "If people talk bad about you, or behind your back, they envy you, they're jealous, and they wish to be like you?"
While I think there's truth to it, it doesn't necessarily ring true in all cases.
After all, you could just be a very big bitch, and people may not necessarily be jealous of you.
But, that's not the point!
The point is, when we bitch about people, we never think about it that way, do we? And come on, we're no angels. We've all had a good coffee session before (or if you haven't, I've had) bitching over someone and his or her annoying behaviours. If I were to think about it, I'm not jealous of that person, am I? So what makes me think if people talk about me, they're jealous?
I feel that these silly quotes were all just invented to make one feel better. And, before we start throwing them around, maybe we should start contemplating how we ourselves act.
On another note, GREAT article I read on jealousy on zenhabits. Everyone should read it!
