Get Lost!

There is nothing worse than coming into contact with someone who is mean-spirited or jealous. Why does it seem to come from mostly women though? Some hide behind their jealousy with rude comments and disapproving stares. They verbally critique you and try to make you question yourself. You know what my advice to this type of woman is? Get Lost! The old saying goes, if you do not have anything nice to say, do not say it at all. Rather than feel insecure, I personally feel sorry for them because they are obviously not very happy with themselves. Sooner or later, the reason for their catty behavior will come out. Either that person will admit it to you or confide the reason to someone else.

When I worked in makeup, I had a girl constantly talk behind my back, put me down, and try to seclude me from the group of coworkers. One day, she even went so far as to tell me “beauty fades, you know”. I was so flabbergasted by her comment up until another coworker told me that she made that comment out of jealousy. Some people see things we do not necessarily see – for instance, when you think you are having a bad hair day and you end up getting a compliment on how great it looks that day. After work a few weeks later, that girl and I were walking out and I noticed her car wouldn’t start. She was out of gas and visibly upset. She could not get into contact with anyone and the mall was completely closed. I calmed her down, drove her to get gas and waited until her car started. Before driving away, she apologized for saying nasty things about me and that she appreciated my help. From that day on, she was very nice and only spoke truthfully about me. Never allow someone to get the best of you.

“Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you – not because they are nice, but because you are”

    I’m currently feeling that at the moment with a family member. Feeling their wrath directed to me. This person used to aim it at another family member until that member walked away refusing to be their target any longer. I’ve now received the infamous rings on my chest. I’ve tried to clear the air before and got pushed aside. So I walked away respecting their wishes. Now this person needs me but instead of expressing that, I apparently did not “read the signs” of being ready to talk about things. And now, once again I’ve been shot at. So I sit here confused, hurt, angry, tired, of swallowing pride. I’m done playing the game of “guess what I’m thinking”. I’ve had people say its jealousy. I’ve had several peole come to me and say they were jealous of me. I sit back and don’t understand because I have nothing to be jealous of. I live my life. Guided by my heart to care love support and encourage people: through laughter, through listening, through simply being there. I hope this family member will one day finally know the taste of pride and swallow it.

    • It is very frustrating when someone acts this way, and even more hurtful when they are family. It sounds like your family member struggles with communication and perhaps does not know how to approach you in a mature matter. Jealousy is bizarre and makes people say and do things out of character. This person is probably most envious of what a good person you are. I wish you the best.

      Stay positive,
