    Is it possible to overcome jealousy?

    Many people suffer from jealousy which is a common human emotion, though negative in nature.
    Is it a psychological disorder or simply a natural emotion?
    It is believed to arise due to low self-esteem and sadness over perceived losses.

    Is it possible to overcome by practicing yoga, pranayama (breathing exercises) and dhyana (meditation)? Can any homeopathic or ayurvedic medicine help in preventing an onset of jealous feelings?

    Why people fall prey to such negative emotions?

    Let us discuss as to how to deal with jealous people so that our own routine activities are not getting affected.

    Jealousy is a nature or character by birth, which is rarely changeable. I've came across many people who even come to satsang, temples and participate in many social activities but their nature of jealous never ends in their life. I am just waiting to watch them without jealous since a long.

    To overcome anything by practice is to know at first the reason and the cause properly. Without knowing your complexes and good/bad characters one can't change in their life even after lot of meditation, yoga or any other therapy. The people suffering with jealousy must know that they're jealous in nature and they must thing positively to eradicate such temperament from their mind, then only possible. Otherwise, doing lot of practices and medicating is impossible to overcome jealousy.

    Yes jealousy can be get ridden off or over come from that situation provided one has the broad minded attitude to accept the reality of the actions and conclusions. Normally we are not matured enough to think and agree for the others to have one step ahead of ours performance in any matter. If a person is performing means , he was well informed, nicely planned and above all he does not have ill felling against others and his main motive is to excel and be ahead. And that attitude wont come to the lazy people and thus they get jealousy over such achievers and that even turns soar and goes to the extent of physical fighting and even elimination.

    Jealousy, to some extent, is acceptable since this offers an oppurtunity to improve upon one's style so as to achieve the target. If one is guided by such instinct, there will be overhaul improvement of working style. The jealousy should be taken in that spirit. However, there are innumerable people who would loss the entire temper and may burst out of temper. Such attitude would mean a heavy toll on both the angles physically and mentally. How to change the mind- set so that the jelousy finally turn out to be a positive asset depends on the individual determination. I would exhort the young men and women of the current age to change their mind - set so that some constructive assignment is achieved out of jealousy.

    Jealousy is one of the most common human emotions. Although, prima-facie, jealousy is bad, many new inventions have taken place due to jealousy which develops competitive spirit. So, jealousy is also necessary for bringing out the best in a person. We cannot under-estimate or look down upon jealousy.

    Jealousy is one of the seven deadly sins. It is quite natural for one to fall jealous with other. And this jealousy gives birth to hatred, and hatred gives birth to crimes.
    Jealousy can only be subdued by the art of being self-content. You only get jealous if you think the other person has something which you don't. But just try to think it all up in a broader level. You have had everything always. What are you even jealous of?
    So start consoling yourself more and more saying that you are content with what you possess.
    This will give you bliss and spark love instead of hatred.

    It's very common to get jealous by something which others have and we don't have but if we take it in positive manner then there is no problem. It give us chance to improve ourselves.
    But if we start taking it negatively it can impact our personalitie in very much wrong way and we need to overcome of that. If we start feeling confident about our self that can overshadow our jealousy. At some time instead of comparing our life with others if one of factors for jealousy so better to concentrate in our own life instead of looking around. If once we are confident and Happy about our own life we can get rid of jealousy

    All the thoughts of human beings are evil from his childhood. That is why even a child is also jealousy. Understanding ones self will help to identify the bad marks in us. If our looks are always towards the neighbour or the colleagues growth and not looking into ourselves negativity will creep into us organically. So look the better part of a life.
    See what we have earned and learned. God has created all in an unique way. Every personality is blessed in one way or other. Think of the blessings we received rather than thinking what we do not have. If you are healthy in all aspect you are the wealthiest person. Reading spiritual writings and doing social activity can divert the mind from
    jealousy to creativity. Let us try to be contempt and happy with what we have and a peaceful life which God has given us .

    Jealousy is a human emotion which can be controlled if it is realised by the person who has been feeling its effect on his or her life.
    Humans are emotional animals and it is often unavoidable in some situations where there is dissatisfaction, low self esteem and confidence in a person.
    If a person realises that he or she is feeling jealous if someone then they can distance themselves from that person , try to avoid thinking about their life's success and trying to divert their mind by feeling satisfied about themselves. Wanting to achieve success and be the best is a good quality if we compete with ourselves and not others according to me.
    When we start getting by other people's lives, talk , suggestions and what not it gives way to ego and jealousy problems in the future.

    Being successful requires a lot of conscious efforts and hard work whereas feeling jealous comes without any efforts. The general human nature is to shun making efforts. Therefore many of them remain content with feeling jealous instead of trying themselves to succeed.
