Jealousy, love, and unjust anger


Post by thatkidakayoungguy » Tue Jan 30, 2018 7:57 pm

I get these and I don't like it. I need to appreciate what I have but it keeps coming back. Like with relationships for instance and that stuff. OR this unjust anger at frustration.

I used to have that too. But you need not deny these emotions. Think about what is just and unjust not in terms of "this is what I wanted but I didn't get it" but rather "what would be good for me and what isn't". Sometimes our love, anger and jealousy are very justified because they can hurt us too. The thing I learnt is that you have to step back and make sense of it. Find value in yourself. Stop asking for happiness from others. When we give others the power to make us happy, they will most of the times, disappoint us. Move on. Being miserable is the worst. That feeling will not lead to anything better. So don't let it overcome you.

I don't know specifically what you are going through but this is what I learnt. My two cents FWIW.
People treat facts as relevant more when the facts tend to support their opinions. When the facts are against their opinions, they don't necessarily deny the facts, but they say the facts are less relevant or insignificant. This is ofcourse because believing things that make you feel comfortable, takes a priority. And I think that should not be the case if one is after truth.
