Yes, it happens! The women who are supposed to be your support system instead are the ones that are looking desperately for your downfalls. It is amazing how you grew with close cousins, learned from your aunts, raised by your mother and grandmothers when you were a child, to grow up and realize that even your very own mother may envy you and your success. I never thought we would see the day when the women in the family talk about their own children, nieces, or in-laws every single chance they get, just because, in reality, they are miserable with their own lives. This may be a hard pill to swallow, but it’s very true.
I have heard stories of college girls desperately trying to understand why their mom, aunt, or cousin seems to have such envy against them. It’s like they have to be a different person when they are around them. I have even heard many of these young girls mentioning how they rather not go home because of the high criticism they face from their families. It is sad but true! I mean, why would anyone want to be around the hardcore group of miserable women who find nothing better to do with their lives but to be jealous of someone else?
Most of these women have a hard time dealing with their failed marriages, un-proportioned bodies, resentment for not living, and the constant reminder that they failed in their life choices. Then they look at the child, niece, or in-law and see the remarkable things going on in their lives and realize that it’s not them. Jealous Much! I would have to say yes; however, these jealous types should not blame these women for being on top of their game and living a life they never lived. Instead, they should look up to them; ask for advice on how not to be miserable, unaccomplished, and overly critical of others’ lives. How can anyone speak of someone’s life if they have not lived in their shoes?
They get mad turn up their lips because yes! The successful woman looks good, has all her teeth, a nice body, hair, and a husband that loves her. It is only normal for the hater to have something to say. What really bothers me is when they want to tell their daughter, niece, or in-law what their husband should or could do better. I have to ask the question; are they still married? I do not think they should give any advice if the marriage that these successful women have is still maintaining longer than the women who are giving critical advice. You have the overly opinionated mom who cannot understand why she is alone, the aunt that does not know how to let the man find her, the cousin who swears that everything that has happened in their life is someone else's fault, and the woman who want to make the sexy little in-law feel she doesn’t fit because they are jealous of their looks and afraid that she will take their men.
Jealousy is something that we all will face no matter who we are. Our goal is to make sure that we do not allow others to make us feel like the problem is us when truly the problem is them. In this day and time, we have to learn to love ourselves more and give the haters a big F You! 😘
