December 16 – jealous

☆  jealous  うらやんで


This week’s useful phrase is: “Don’t be jealous!”

When do you think you would you use this phrase? Perhaps you got a new job, but your friend is still looking for work, or hates their current job. Or maybe, your boyfriend saw you having coffee with another guy and was angry at you.

An interesting thing about feeling jealous of others is that we often forget that someone might feel jealous of us. So, instead of saying this phrase to someone else, it might be a good one to say to ourselves! If you see someone with the car or job or partner that you want, feel happy for them, and tell yourself, “Don’t be jealous!”

What do you think of that idea?
