You know what MJ used to tell me when I was little …“why you worrying about this girl and that boy. If they are jealous of you then you should be happy. Because, it means you possess a talent or something which they don’t.”
“Be happy but not arrogant” She always warned me and try helping them out to find theirs and make them happy too. She made my day in those few minutes she came out with this explanation. I was glad, I was worthwhile and people acknowledged it by being jealous.
The irony of it all…They say, Success has a thousand fathers and defeat is an orphan…. but I came to realise in the course of these past so many years that this same success has many a jealous friend turn foe too. It completely eludes me how a best buddy cannot fully appreciate and be glad at the friend’s success. Unconditional. That’s the adjective. Asking for too much and too many things in this world of rat race, am I? 🤔🤔
