Action Steps from the Podcast
When you notice jealousy (or fear) is showing up first acknowledge it is there. Remove yourself from the reactive space and take deep breaths. Then focus on gratitude instead and begin a list of appreciations to ground you in what your jealousy might be trying to protect instead of the reactions coming up.
Make three columns on a piece of paper. In the first column write out all your thoughts (you don’t have to show this to anyone, so don’t worry about editing yourself here). In the second column list the feelings associated with each thought. And in the final column make a list of actions you can take or requests you can make to address the feelings.
