The Successful Mind Podcast - Episode 580 - Understanding the Thin Line Between Jealousy and Envy

Understanding the Thin Line Between Jealousy and Envy


How do you handle jealousy and envy? Everyone has experienced these two emotions at some point in their life. But you may not know that they can both teach you something about your suppressed self. These emotions indicate that there’s something you want more of inside of yourself, but you’re not allowing yourself to have it—for some subconscious reason. And this can usually be tied back to our childhood and our suppressed self.


Jealousy is based in fear. You see someone experiencing something you want, and you don’t think you can be, do, or have that thing—and it feels like something’s being taken away from you.


Envy is a sign that you want more of something in your life, but you’re not allowing yourself to have more of that thing in your life.


In this episode we discuss:


  • The difference between jealousy and envy—and how the things you judge in other people are actually things you want a little bit more of in your own life


  • How our subconscious mind causes us NOT to see things we’ve suppressed since childhood


  • How Steph used to judge people who wear pajamas to the grocery store—and how “the old Steph” was incredibly concerned about what she looked like to the point where it was almost debilitating


  • How the things you judge can reveal or uncover your suppressed self


  • How the extreme end of jealousy and envy is anger—people convince themselves they can’t have what they want, so they get angry—“Because I can’t have it, you shouldn’t have it either”


If you find yourself experiencing jealousy or envy, ask yourself, “What do I want?”  What are you NOT giving to yourself that you want?


Do you want more support in your life? Do you want to be more visible? Do you want more money? What’s the underlying message behind the jealousy or envy?
