Having jealousy towards others is dangerous.

Jealousy can hide in compliments, envy can hide in support, and hate can hide in love. So just because they're giving it to you doesn't mean they have it for you.

This quote is so accurate because jealousy towards anyone for any reason is dangerous. If you feel jealous over what someone else has, that is not a good look. Most people don't even realize that jealousy can hide in compliments. Even though someone will and can compliment you for something you have done, that doesn't mean they are sincere in what they say. Make sure you look at the person's actions when they are complimenting you because they could be hiding jealousy in their heart towards you.

Envy can hide in support, which is dangerous because you do not want to find yourself in a situation where the people in your circle give you fake support. The fake support is envy, and most of us do not realize it because we are so consumed with trying to destroy others. I have learned that no matter how hard you try to support others, you must take a step back and look at who truly supports you without envy.

Hate can hide in love, and this is also dangerous because most of us have been around someone who pretended that they loved us only to find out later that they really hate us because of the inner light that we givers of this world tend to bring. It is exceptionally challenging when you know that you have a good heart and always look for ways to uplift others but find yourself not getting back what you have invested in others.

The last part of this quote is so powerful that I am going to take my time writing this because we all need to take some time to think about what I am going to say next. So just because others give it to you doesn't mean they have it for you. In other words, a person can not give you what they are unwilling to give themselves. So, if that person is not giving you the emotional, mental, or physical support that you need, then you have to learn to start making some adjustments to the players on your team. So again, just because they give it to you doesn't mean

It took me years to learn all these lessons because I was looking for others to validate who I was, only to find out later that I didn't need others to validate me. I had to do that part for myself first, and then others would wonder how I was still happy in the world, smiling all the time and constantly pouring positivity into others. Most people do not understand the back story of why givers are built the way that we are.

Well, let me give my readers some clarity on this matter. First, once a giver learns how to fight through life's pains and realizes that these pains are lessons to help build your inner strength, you will soon find out that you can use your pain as part of your healing process. So, instead of looking at your pain as an obstacle, look at it as a chance to rebuild yourself.

Jealousy will always be dangerous for you and those you claim to love. No one wants to feel like others are nothing, so in closing today, I want to say to all my givers of positive energy, keep giving, but this time, be more intentional and selective in who you allow to be around your essence.
