  1. They hate you for no reason. This is the easiest one to spot. You have done nothing, not interacted in anyway to bring on the hate but there it is and they make it known. If you had the chance to ask them why they hate you, the reasons would not have much foundations except for…” I just can’t stand her!”
  2. They pile on a lot of false praise. When someone is jealous of you, they’re often the first to give you an over the top compliment that sounds sincere, or may be dripping with passive aggression. However, you’ll find that these people will also be the ones who will be talking behind your back and rolling their eyes the minute you leave the room. They would rather pretend they’re not jealous than address the issue.
  3. They downplay your good fortune. No matter what you achieve, got lucky or how hard you worked to get your prize, jealous people will always try to make it seem like it was not deserved by you. The reasons they come up with may be rude or condescending.
  4. They will always over talk you with their own latest successes. Someone who is jealous of you may be more inclined to flaunt their success more than it’s really worth or downright lie about what they have accomplished to match or better yours. They may be more apt to flaunt their own achievements while you’re celebrating your own.
  5. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…or so they say but if jealousy is the core foundation of imitating what you do, they usually want to be better than you but also be just like you. They may imitate the way you talk or the way you dress in order to feel better about themselves.
  6. They are competitive with you and feel the strong need and desire to ‘one up you or best you’ in almost anything you do or have. This is a sign of great insecurity, arrogance or the need to prove their superiority.”
  7. They actually celebrate your failures! Someone who is jealous of you is going to privately feel very good when you make mistakes, get reprimanded or worse yet, get your heart broken once again. While they may never show it, they’re often secretly enjoying your failures. If you handle your mistakes with grace, you take away their attempt to make you feel less than and them feel more superior!
  8. They gossip behind your back. Jealous people just can’t seem to help themselves when given an opportunity to find a way to talk about you in a snarky way. It is usually not a fun conversation but filled with things that are malicious and hurtful.
  9. Constantly reminding and criticizing you of your past failures. Whenever you have good news and share, he/she acts unexcited or instantly tries to minimize it (and you), with a statement like, “be careful because something bad could happen once again like it did in your past.” A true friend will know when to appropriately celebrate you, not remind you of your past failures.
  10. Humiliate you in public. If one of your friends has ever told your personal business out in front of the crowd or made you feel small in front of others more than one time, chances are they are jealous of you.

Susan Z’s Verdict

Jealousy from a stranger is usually something you can handle but when it hits close to home, it always feels like a betrayal. The best approach is compassion and a kind confrontation of the issue. Where is goes from there is always based on the others self-esteem or your view of your own. Own your successes and let the good opinion of others fall on deaf ears.
