Don’t share your good news (could be anything from getting a good job, getting promoted…etc) with just anyone. Jealousy is an immense force and you don’t want that negativity in life. Know the people who genuinely care about you and break the good news to only them.

  1. Only you and you alone can be your worst enemy. Jealousy from someone else cannot inflict anything in my life unless I allow it to. Surround yourself around friends that are happy and supportive of your well-being.

  2. I kind of wish I learned this earlier. Every time I shared good news it backfired. Especially when I share it to certain people. Now I keep things to myself.

  3. this is some sensible advice that my father always gives me. be it coworkers or (not-so-close) friends, the element of jealousy does arise.

  4. I like to treat everyone like their the cops. You never offer up information unless specifically asked.

  5. In my country it’s almost a tradition if something good happens to someone, the first thing people in general wish them is to *”rot in hell”*, *”hope you [die / insert random bad thing]”*, then start talking to others about how horrible that person is, and how we always hated them, and why they don’t deserve that happiness, and why we would be better candidates for that thing.

  6. Yup. I had a good period in my life not long ago, but my “friends” really resented me for it. I did act a lil cocky, but nonetheless, their attitude ended my friendships with them. And like you said, I learned not to tell certain people my good fortune. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. If you’re riding high, people will want to pull you down.

    So I learned to leave well enough alone. If things are going well, don’t get greedy and look for props or even saltiness by rubbing it in to others. Just enjoy what you have.

  7. I remember some guys from my university bragging on Facebook about their amazing grades every time they passed an exam. Some dude who kept failing exams was so jealous he posted on Facebook something like “I hate when people brag about their grades, it’s not fair for those who failed!”, but didn’t mention or tag them specifically. Guess what, next day they beat him.

  8. I found this to be good advice among coworkers in a tipped service job. Whenever someone asks “how did you do today” just answer “I did ok”. If you say you did bad they will repeat to others and make you look bad. If you say you did good they will be jealous and resentful.

Brag about your friends to people who could offer them opportunities. Referrals can open doors where otherwise selling yourself is a tremendous uphill battle.
