Defeating jealousy

Live audio chat with Susan Mack, C.S

Bringing a tender honesty to this chat, Susan points out that jealousy is “never about what I think I’m jealous of ... it’s really about my concept of God.” Does God dole out a certain amount of good, meaning there’s not enough good to go around? Susan shares how she’s discovered a bigger concept of God, who is “one whole of good.” No one can ever be left out. We’re all included in that infinite goodness, and an understanding of that truth can defeat jealousy.

Listeners ask questions on a wide range of subjects related to jealousy, including measuring one’s life achievements against the success of others, the difference between jealousy and ambition, feeling jealous of someone’s health or youth, feelings of inadequacy over body image, envy in the workplace, sibling rivalry, how jealousy affects marriages and families, and how to protect oneself and deal with malicious thoughts from others.
