This week has really shown me that not everyone should be a part of one’s success. As we go through life and succeed we share that success with others, but not everyone is going to be happy. So why is it that we can’t share our happiness with others?
This week has been a good week for my friend because she got a new job that pays more and has less hours. When she got the news about the job she was excited and started to call her family and friends to share the news. Unfortunately, one of her friends was not happy for her and let her know it.
She was upset about it and that’s when I told her that not everyone is going to be happy with other people’s success. Even though she had this great news her friend wasn’t happy because they are in different places and there is jealousy there. When someone is unhappy with their life it’s hard for them to be happy for someone else’s.
As great as success is, it can’t always be shared with certain people. Some people don’t want to see people move forward when they are not. So the only thing to do is to leave them out of the celebration and be happy with those that are happy too.
