Jealousy is one of those traits many of us like least in ourselves. But there are certain scenarios where we just can’t seem to shake it.
That was the case for a Reddit user who recently sought advice about how to be happy for her coworker who was recently promoted.
She prefaced her story by saying, “Please don’t just flame me for being a b****, I know that and I’m just desperate for some tips or suggestions to cope.”
She also explained, “I suffer with a lot of mental illnesses but I’m in treatment and on medication and I’ve come SUCH a long way. My live in boyfriend says over the last year I’ve been amazing with very few manic episodes or bouts of depression and anxiety. I still have my moments but I talk to a therapist and see a psychiatrist. I will discuss my jealousy issues with my therapist soon but honestly we’ve had bigger fish to fry, and I’m kind of only now seeing what a big problem my jealousy is.”
