Jealousy Is A Wasted Emotion

160_F_74607474_Rqw1iwDXtl5pXYlBtGG6yhw82UjBcOTt    Jealously is one of the most wasted emotions that humans experience because it has no purpose. Instead of wasting energy being jealous or envious, spend time enhancing and improving yourself.  Jealous and envious women thrive in negative environments and radiate negative energy. Fabulously fifty women of color thrive in positive environments and radiate positive energy.

When you allow yourself to become consumed by jealousy, your psychological, emotional, physical and social well-being may become unbalanced leading you to act, react and interact negatively – and without warning, you suddenly find yourself stuck on a page in the book of your life, an abyss, or the murky waters of envy, spite, and anger.

You focus on embracing other women of color and being supportive. You clearly understand that you will meet women who may be more creative, smarter and prettier than you are, have better bodies, prettier hair, larger homes, better opportunities, class and style, or women who have embarked on awesome careers. Embrace them while embracing you, and never allow yourself to waste time or emotions dwelling on negativity.  Giving someone the evil eye glare, being a crab in the barrel, making nasty comments, or being mean-spirited, all limit your ability to live a fulfilling, happy and significant life. 

Lift each other by celebrating, embracing and empowering each other through words of encouragement, support, and unity. Cheer each other on and be the inspiration needed to conquer the negativity of jealousy.
