Do you often face the green eyed monster?

awesome advice. you know, i once read somewhere that jealousy stems from fear. so when i felt the green-eyed monster starting to rear its ugly head, i'd ask myself, "what am i afraid of?" usually, the answer would be that someone else would be ahead of or have more than me....which meant that i felt threatened,

I agree with you.

i agree with you that we're taught to be jealous. i think that undermines society as a whole, since it emphasizes the individual and "every man for himself". it also makes us more selfish and distrustful of others, because we view them as the competition and not as potential friends.
