I want to be free of envy, being something that I'm not.
Comparing my belongings to theirs, envy towards rich, goodlooking, popular, peoples person.
I always wish for things I don't have, wish I had this, wish I had that, wish I look like him, wish I could fit in, wish I could afford that, wish I could do the impossible...
How do I get it out of my head? I usually lose it when I envy people and their things.

I'm really sorry you feel that way. I used to be the same way but then I realized that it stems from something much deeper. The reason I envied people was because I was insecure within myself and didn't feel like I had anything. I envied their talents and their belongings because I didn't think I could attain those things on my own. Jealousy begins to dissipate when you realize the things you have going for you. Really try to acknowledge your strengths and work on improving your weaknesses. I know everyone has something special to offer the world & you are no exception! :) Just keep your head up and remember that you're here for a reason. Jealousy is a toxic emotion because it can drive people do things they ordinarily wouldn't. Just be grateful for every day you wake up because some people don't even have the basic necessities that we all have and take for granted. Like being healthy and not being in a hospital for weeks at a time or not having a disability that prevents you from functioning normally. There's always something to smile about if you really concentrate on finding it :) Hope this helps and let me just add that jealousy will always exist but it's about honing it in & not letting it dictate your life. There are plenty of things you have that people envy and want & you're lucky enough to possess what you do :)1
