Default Jealousy... and how to avoid it

Hi there, and thanks for viewing this thread!

Lately I've been feeling jealous. There are members that have green spinnies (who doesn't want those?) and I really like them. Also, there are members that have joined WI later than I did, and have more Giftz/posts/friends than I have. I know it's NOT a popularity contest here, but I'm sure many of you are also feeling the same way.

Everytime I think about that, I remind myself:

-You are just as important as any of them
-The circumstances might be different
-There is no reason to be jealous.
-Why not focus on being the best YOU can be?
-It's the inside that matters, not the outside. (Thanks, Bob!)

I especially like the last one, and I follow it most of the time. It actually brings up my mood, and I hope it'll help some others. Just be yourself.

Feel free to post ideas/comments/constructive criticism! If you (or someone else) has made a thread like this recently, please let me know so I can have this thread closed. Thanks!

Thank you! I've been feeling that twinge of jealousy a lot lately, although I've come so far since I've started.

Thanks for the reminder! I admit that I'm a little jealous that only certain people get those realy, really cool green spinnies. And because they are people who got gifted with way less time on WI then me. But I know that vanvan20 didn't intend for people to get jealous...

Thank you, puppies!

I agree; it took me about a month and a half to get Gifted. There are many others who became gifted within a month, and I really was jealous about that. Vanvan definitely didn't want people to get jealous. I think it was a wonderful suggestion

dogluver, i completley agree. i know this is hard to believe..but i once felt the twinge of jealousy about you..i mean, gift guru, lime rep, and all of that came out of you joining only a few months before i did.

then i realized something...rep and post and titles did not matter, it is the person on the inside that really matters. it doensn't matter if you have 5 gold boxes of rep or 1 gray one, 10000 post or 10, being a lil kinz of a gift guru...everyone has something to contribute. don't be jealous of dixiecup because she has so many boxes, or of your friend because they got gifted before you did. just try to be the nicest, most helpful, and kind person you can be, and soon you will find yourself rewarded with great friends, and if you crave them, fancy titles and lots of post

thanks for the great reminder

Thank you so much, Bob!

I really loved reading this post- I completely 110% agree with it. I admit I've been jealous of you before too... you're always so cheerful and helpful around the forum and before I saw some of your posts, I didn't know how. It's the INSIDE that matters, thank you so much for bringing that up!
