Jealousy is a normal human emotion and many people feel it in small doses throughout life. A little jealousy doesn’t hurt anyone. Extreme jealousy is a terrible emotion. Those who suffer feel inferior to others and are convinced that the only way to be happy is to have what others have. This can be a path of self-destruction unless they get what they want so much.

Next, please take a break, relax and read a collection of motivational quotes about jealousy. Be inspired by these quotes and don’t let jealousy control your life.
