I have a professional colleague that I work closely with. We both are on the same level, and essentially do the same job. We have a great working relationship, enjoy working with each other, relish the challenge of our jobs, and work hard.
We both went for a promotion and she got it. I am happy for her, but I am experiencing feelings of intense jealousy. Whatever way you look at it, it is irrational - and I find myself moping about at home and generally feeling sorry for myself the last couple of days.
From January, she will now be my superior.
Anyone here ever felt jealous? What is the cure? I dont want to feel jealous. But I do. Care to share any experiences of unpacking jealousy?
