The jealous competitive guy can be spot because he will always have bad remarks to make to you. Especially when you announce good news about your career, your life, your achievement,…
He’s the one who will tell you could have done better instead of being genuinely happy about what happened to you. He won’t hesitate to tell you have put on weight (even if it’s not true) and that you should do more exercises even if you run like crazy between your professional appointments and wear a zero size.
He’s very critical. All the time. He doesn’t appreciate life and he’s not grateful. Because inside of him, he’s just a loser, who’s mad at the world because he could be more successful.
Let’s face it, we can all be jealous sometimes. But most of us keep this feeling inside and some even use that energy to start a project. And we forget about it.
The jealous guy will tell you he’s jealous. But instead of telling you he’s jealous, he will make derogatory remarks about you.
But don’t worry, you’re not the only person who receives his critics. He will also talk shit behind his “friends” ‘back.
He’s not nice. And he can make you feel like shit. But there’s an easy way to neutralize him, by asking him why he just said the mean sentence or question about you. Usually, he will have a hard time to answer your question.
Another way is to tell him his remarks are mean, by telling him how hurt you are by his remarks. If he’s not a monster, he will realize he’s mean with you, and remind not to say the same thing to you again.
I have a friend who is the jealous type. But over the years, I’ve been able to neutralize him, by simply asking him why he makes bad remarks.
