So I have been told that there is a deadly disease going around more rapid than STD’s or even the AIDS virus. Something called jealousy? Don’t catch it! Jealousy is a silent killer. It’s a disease some people battle with and live with for years. Jealousy can be the main cause of people’s downfalls. Why? Because some are willing to keep up with what others have so bad that they lose their purpose and lose themselves in the process. Jealousy is just a result of wanting what somebody else has and not feeling secure enough in yourself to be content in what you already have. Do you, and let others do them.
It is so crazy to me how people would rather show off materialistic things that have NO value versus living a prosperous life and have bank statements to show really just how prosperous you are. The people bragging about how much money they have really are the broke people. When you have money, you don’t have to say a word. People with money have a certain glow about them. Broke people have this fake chain wearing, bling bling glow about them that leaves a dirty green ring around their neck. Do not get caught up in the hype of having to “look” like you have money until you forget that there is really nothing in your pocket.
Ladies it is so ludicrous to carry a purse that costs hundreds of dollars but yet in still you have no money in it. Come on now, let’s do better. What about those new shoes you bought to wear to the club and you also have to walk in those same shoes back home because you have no car? Come on now, let’s do better. Why do you have to have a new outfit every other weekend and your child isn’t meeting the school uniform dress code? Come on now, let’s do better. You know how we quick to say MOE (money over everything)…It should be KOE (kids over everything)!! Some major things ESPECIALLY your children should not have to go lacking because you are trying to impress others.
Men I can’t leave you all out. Every woman, notice I said woman doesn’t get easily impressed with rims now a days. I am not knocking if you do have rims on your car. Do what you know you can AFFORD. However, if the rims cost MORE than the car, Houston we have a problem! If you are on Facebook and Twitter posting pictures of all the money you have but you can’t seem to get caught up on child support; Houston we have a problem! If every time a new pair of Jordan’s come out and you have to choose whether or not to get the shoes or pay your bills, Houston we have a problem! I’m going to need for you to get it together quick!
In conclusion, do not let jealousy take over you. Just simply be appreciative of what God has already given you. If you want more then make sure the motive behind wanting more is to better your life NOT to keep up with others. There is nothing wrong with wanting more or a better life. Just don’t lose who you are in the process of trying to obtain things. Money doesn’t guarantee happiness.
Jealousy stems from insecurity. Loving you and being happy with your own life is the only thing that will cure jealousy. Don’t let jealousy kill you. Disinfect before it spreads!!
