We are what we see in the world.
Relationships are mirrors. They show us our own reflections and oftentimes when we find ourselves in a situation where there is resistance in a relationship it could be because we don’t want to accept what we see. If you see somebody who is successful and feel envious it could be because you are denying yourself the success you crave.
We have been thought that only a few people can succeed and that the money out there is not enough for everybody. In a society where everybody is chasing the same things, it is so easy to feel scarcity. We are so afraid that people will try to steal our success that we try to hide it. We become like Gollum and hide our precious things from the world because we are afraid that they will be stolen from us.
I can admit that sometimes it takes me a while to feel happy for other people. I get so fearful that I will never be successful and whenever somebody else gets something I want I start to feel negative. I think bad thoughts and feel left out. Why do I not deserve to feel happy? When is it my turn to get what I want?
It is so easy to forget to be grateful in a world where it is always about making it to the next level. We want to get the fastest car, the biggest house, the best promotion. This silent competition that we have all agreed on participating in our adult life should just stop here and now.
Life should really be about who can learn to be the happiest most loving person, right? You make yourself feel good by deciding what success means to you. It could be as simple as you want or be as difficult as you choose. We are the creators of own lives and every day we can be as happy as we want or as sad as we want.
Give a gift of love.
Think about the last time you received a gift from someone. Do you remember how it felt? Didn’t it feel good that someone had thought of you and actually took the time to get you a present?
Now think about the last time you got a compliment from another person. Did it make you feel happy? I bet it did and you know what the best part about it was? It was free. It doesn’t cost anything to honor people or praise them with kind words and usually, it means a lot to receive. This is something that brings us closer to each other and is a good way to spread more love.
A good way to get over those feelings of envy in your relationships could be to compliment the other person. It is not always easy but it is the right thing to do. When you have this mentality of showing appreciation for other people you invite good vibes back to yourself.
To acknowledge people is so radically important. It is one of the best ways to feel connected to someone else. It is a simple way to open up for conversation and opens up for new opportunities of information to be shared and linked.
So, remember to always give credit where credit is due.
Lesson: There is enough abundance for all of us.
“You is kind.
You is smart.
You is important.”
