Jealousy is the thief of happiness. Experiencing strong negative emotions toward someone else for what they have (and you’re missing) is a formula for misery, and yet we all allow it to grab us from time-to-time. Luckily, there’s a simple psychological hack known as “compersion”, which has the power to drastically reduce and even eliminate the strongest feelings of jealousy. In this post, I discuss an interview I conducted in 2011 with Dr. Deborah Anapol, one of the leading authorities on this subject. Her e-book, “Compersion: Meditations on Using Jealously as a Path to Unconditional Love” is the best book I’ve ever read on the subject. It’s a complete game changer.
