    Jealousy/Covetousness is all about being concerned with other people's blessings rather than yours. But may I tell you this. You shouldn't be concerned with anybody's blessing. Yes, because every living human is blessed. Oh! Yes, it's a matter of mentality. Besides, if not for any other thing/reason. At least, the life you are living presently is being denied to many people out there in the mortuary. At this juncture, I hope you've realized truly you are not expected to covet/jealous anyone for any reason. Thus, go ahead and appreciate whatever you've got currently. And do glorify/thank God almighty who is the sole giver and taker of life/grace/wisdom/insight/every other true blessing.
