How to overcome jealousy and envy 

  • The first step to overcoming jealousy is having the spirit of contention in you. You have to be contended, with whatever you have, don't feel bad because your friends and people have certain things you don't have. Be contended. It goes a long way toward overcoming jealousy and envy.
  • Emulate rather than envy, when you see people do things or take actions you marvel about because you can't do them, emulate these people, do you, and trust me, you will even do better than them.
  • Stay away from comparison, don't ever compare yourself with others, you're special and will always be special. So don't try comparing yourself with others. Instead, be yourself and strive to be a good and better version of yourself.
  • Always try, to be honest, no matter what.
  • Be real with yourself, be true, don't lie because you want to feel better about yourself than someone else, the lies will catch up with you and it can be demeaning to yourself - your status and reputation.
  • Always be grateful, don't think of the things you don't have, think of the things you have and be happy to have them, soon you'll see you would have everything you ever wished for.

Finally, learn to grow - see things you consider too important, as trivial, because these things can make you envious or jealous. Life is nothing but vanity when you see it like that, you'll grow well enough and outgrow every form of envy and jealousy. 

And finally don't give up, always find new ways to overcome jealousy and envy.
