Jealousy is a normal emotion, but it can be harmful if it's excessive. If you're finding that jealousy is impacting your mental health, it's important to take steps to address it. First, try to understand the root of your jealousy. What is causing you to feel this way? Once you know the cause, you can start to work on addressing it. For example, if you're jealous of someone because they seem to have a perfect life, remind yourself that everyone has struggled - no one's life is perfect. If you're feeling insecure, try boost your self-esteem by focusing on your positive qualities. Lastly, talk to someone about how you're feeling. Talking openly about jealousy can help you better understand and cope with the emotion.
